K10600 Fuel Storage Stability Vessel


Test Method
Used for assessing potential storage stability of middle distillate fuels, including fuels with or without stabilizer additives, and freshly refined or previously stored fuels. The sample is aged in a pressurized vessel at constant temperature for 16 hours and, after cooling, the total amount of insoluble products is determined gravimetrically.

Features and Benefits
• Conforms to the specification of ASTM D5304

• Four unit and six unit models


K10600 Fuel Storage Stability Vessel
Stainless steel pressure vessels accommodate multiple sample containers for determining storage stability of fuels by the oxygen overpressure method. Vessels meet all applicable ASME and ASTM safety requirements for construction and working pressure and maximum operating temperature and are equipped with pressure safety valves factory present at 200psi (1,332kpa). Included with each model are a collapsible glassware rack that installs and removes easily for cleaning, oxygen inlet and outlet valves with quick disconnect fittings and charging hose, pressure gauge and wide-mouth closure with viton O-ring seal.
