Evaporation Loss Test Apparatus
Evaporation Cell — Suitable for evaporation loss tests on
lubricating greases and oils in the temperature range of 210 to 300°F (99 to
149°C). Passes heated air over the sample at the required flow rate. Consists
of stainless steel body, cover, eduction tube and hood. Calibrated flowmeter
with needle valve maintains 2L/min. air flow at standard temperature and
pressure. Supplied with stainless steel grease or oil sample cup. Sample cups
are interchangeable. Entire assembly mounts in Evaporation Loss Test Bath.
Evaporation Loss Test Bath — Constant temperature oil bath mounts two
Evaporation Cells in an upright position at the proper immersion level.
Maintains test temperature within ±1°F (±0.5°C). Microprocessor PID control
provides quick temperature stabilization without overshoot and the bath is
protected by an overtemperature control circuit that interrupts power should
bath temperature exceed a programmed cut-off point. Dual LED displays provide
actual and setpoint temperature values in °C/°F format. Communications
software (RS232, etc.), ramp-to-set and other enhanced features are available
as extra cost options. Contact your Koehler representative for information.
Fully insulated, double-wall construction, with stainless steel tank and
polyurethane-finished steel exterior.
*Also available–special bath to accommodate both ASTM D972 and D942
(Oxidation Stability of Greases K10901) test
methods. Please contact Koehler for additional information.
