K10504 Oxidata™ Data Acquisition Software Package


 

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 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
• Electronic pressure measurement systems exclusively designed for ASTM oxidation test methods

• Powerful Oxidata™ software for Windows® environments

• Monitors up to twelve pressure and four temperature channels

• Automatic end-point detection

• Real-time average bath temperature display

• Can be installed to most manufacturer's fuels oxidation test apparatus


 

K10504 Oxidata™ Data Acquisition Software Package
Complete electronic measurement systems for plotting pressure versus time and temperature in oxidation testing of fuels. Each system includes transducers, multiplexer, data acquisition card, software, and mounting and connecting hardware. Systems are available in two, three and four pressure vessel configurations, and additional channels can be added for up to a total of twelve pressure and four temperature channels.

Koehler's pressure measurement systems for fuels oxidation testing features Oxidata™, a high accuracy pressure measurement software package designed exclusively for ASTM oxidation test methods. Designed to run in a Windows® environment, Oxidata™ monitors up to twelve samples simultaneously, with graphical or tabular display of results. Each channel can be independently configured for any of the applicable ASTM standard test methods without compromising the independence or accuracy of the other channels. Independent start and stop times and user programmable end points add even greater flexibility.

The software plots your data on screen on line, real time, and automatically saves your data on disk or to the hard drive during the test to prevent loss of valuable data. Multiple display options include the ability to view the status of all twelve pressure channels on screen simultaneously and then click on any one channel for a graph display; or to view four channels in graphical format simultaneously. Powerful program features allow you to change axes, have colored plot lines and zoom in on a specific plot sector to view data in greater detail.

Oxidata™ Features and Specifications
• On line, real time monitoring of up to twelve samples simultaneously – results plot directly to the screen for instant monitoring or printout of results

• Automatic detection and reporting of break point and induction period

• Invalid test indication when a pressure leak is detected

• Menu options for fuels oxidation testing and other ASTM oxidation tests

• Programmable automatic end point detection with graphical and tabular representation

• Each channel can be configured and operated independently with different start/stop times and different ASTM test methods

• Zoom in feature allows for magnification of any plot sector on any channel for a more detailed study

• Monitors and reports temperatures of as many as four baths simultaneously using accessory RTD's, and calculates and displays average temperature for each bath

• Exports data to spreadsheet programs such as Microsoft Excel®, Lotus 1-2-3® etc.

• Temperature and pressure calibration capability

• Data is saved directly to the disk or hard drive during testing to prevent loss of valuable data

• Operates in Windows® environments
