Automatic Carbon Residue Tester

Automated. Programmable. Primed for Accuracy.
ASTM D189, IP 13, ISO 6615:1993,

								ASTM D189,

Designed for novice to expert levels

Adhering to ASTM D189, ISO 6615 and IP 13, the ACR-6 conradson carbon residue Tester automates the evaporation and pyrolysis of the oil sample in preparation for determination of the Conradson value for percentage of carbon residue. The conradson carbon residue instrument additionally is intended to provide indication of relative coke-forming propensities. Optimum heater output for the prescribed burning process is programmed easily prior to the test, with no further adjustments needed for easy operation. The ignition and extinguish of the sample is determined by a sheathed thermocouple at the crucible, providing constant temperature monitoring. The tester’s clean, modular design provide both simple operation and effortless handling.
