Water Separability Tester
Seven sample Water Separability Tester provides full visibility and
microprocessor control of all functions for simplified, accurate testing of
up to seven samples at a time. Use for specification of new oils and
monitoring of in-service petroleum oils and synthetic fluids.
Seven position heating bath – A full visibility bath immerses seven
100mL cylinders at the proper depth per ASTM and ISO specifications. Sample
cylinders are held securely in place by stainless steel supports inside the
bath. A microprocessor based immersion circulator/heater assembly controls
bath fluid temperature with greater than ±1°C accuracy and stability
throughout the operating range of 25°C to 150°C. Large LED readouts display
setpoint and actual temperatures in celsius or fahrenheit scale at the
operator’s option. For most samples, ASTM/ISO sample temperatures of 54°C and
82°C are attained within 10 minutes after placement of the test cylinders
into the stabilized bath. Clear Pyrex™ bath has backlighting for excellent
visibility when viewing emulsion separations in the test cylinders. Cut-off
circuits for low water level and over-temperature conditions provide
protection in the event of equipment malfunction. Finished aluminum cover
assembly has built-in handles for removal when filling or cleaning the bath.
Microprocessor sample stirrer – To avoid sample movement, the sample
stirrer housing pivots to each test position in the bath and locks securely
in place at the required position in relation to the 100mL sample cylinder.
The digital stirrer offers complete flexibility for test duration and
stirring speed at the push of a button. Operating speed and count down time
are prominently displayed on a large backlit LCD panel. A wide operating
range of 60 - 1800 rpm permits in-house customized testing with ±1rpm
accuracy, and the operator may select a stirring time of up to 99.99 minutes.
At the end of the selected interval, the stirrer automatically shuts off and
alerts the operator with visual signals that the settling period has
commenced. For added convenience, all test parameters are stored in memory
and repeated in subsequent tests until they are changed by the operator.
