K10401 Oxidation Stability of Fuels, Solid Block Baths


 

Test Method
Provides an indication of the tendency of gasoline and aviation fuels to form gum in storage. The sample is oxidized inside a stainless steel pressure vessel initially charged with oxygen at 100psi (689kPa) and heated in a solid block bath. The amount of time required for a specified drop in pressure (gasoline) or the amount of gum and precipitate formed after a specific aging period (aviation fuels) is determined.

Features and Benefits
• Conforms to ASTM D525, D873, ISO 7536 and related specifications

• Available in two or four-unit configurations

• Choice of water or solid block heating baths

• Oxidation pressure vessel incorporates burst disk assembly


 

K10401 Oxidation Stability of Fuels, Solid Block Baths
Insulated aluminum block baths available in two or four-unit capacity. Baths feature microprocessor temperature control with built-in overtemperature protection and dual LED displays for setpoint and actual temperature values in C/F format. The solid block design offers operating advantages over the boiling water bath, and meets temperature control and other requirements of ASTM and related methods. It should be noted, however, that many applicable specifications for this test method call for a liquid bath medium. Housed in an insulated steel cabinet with chemical-resistant polyurethane enamel finish. Includes lids for pressure vessel ports. Order thermometer separately.

Communications software (RS232, etc.) ramp-to-set and other enhanced features are available as extra cost options. Contact your Koehler representative for information.

Specifications
Conforms to the specifications of: ASTM D525, D873; IP 40, IP 138; ISO 7536; DIN 51780, 51799; FTM 791-3352, 791-3354; NF M 07-012, 07-013

Maximum Temperature
250F (121C)

Solid block baths meet temperature control and other requirements of ASTM and related methods. While the aluminum block design offers operating advantages over the standard boiling water bath, it should be noted that many applicable specifications for this test call for a liquid bath medium. Please refer to the test method for the specific requirements.
