Oxidation Stability Apparatus, 8- & 12-Unit
Constant temperature baths with solid state temperature control, calibrated
flowmeters and condenser water manifold for oxidation stability tests on
fuels and lubricants. Individual flowmeters and control valves for each
oxidation cell deliver air flow at the rate of 3L/h. Condenser water manifold
has individual control valves for each cell. Microprocessor PID control
provides quick temperature stabilization without overshoot, and the bath is
protected by a redundant overtemperature control circuit that interrupts
power should bath temperature exceed a programmed cut-off point. Display
provides actual setpoint temperature values in °C/°F format. Communications
software (RS232, etc.), ramp-to-set and other enhanced features are available
as extra cost options. Double-wall insulated baths are equipped with
electronic solid state temperature control, copper immersion heaters and a
1/20 hp circulation stirrer to maintain temperature uniformity of ±0.2°C.
Stainless steel bath interior has a built-in support rack and overflow/drain
to immerse the test cells at the required depth. Order oxidation cell
glassware and accessories separately.
