Micro Carbon Residue Tester, 97400-3

An automatic airtight furnace that is pre-programmed to run tests to determine Micro (Conradson) Carbon residue of petroleum products.

The digitally controlled furnace has a temperature range of ambient to 500°C. Temperature, flow and pressure values are automatically controlled and values are displayed on the control panel. The test cycle includes an audible ‘end of test’ alarm. A 6 place holder for 16ml sample tubes and a 12 place holder for 2ml or 4ml sample tubes are supplied with the instrument (for sample tubes see Accessories).

Methods: ASTM D4530-IP 398, BS 2000 Part 398, ISO 10370

The instrument has an integral condensate trap and exhaust outlet connection that allows fumes to be vented remotely if testing is not carried out under a fume hood. Low pressure and dual over-temperature cut-outs ensure safe operation. Fan assisted air cooling minimises time between tests.

Supplied with: 12 place holder, 6 place holder, removal tool, condensate trap, oven lid, braided hose for nitrogen gas (3m), rubber exhaust hose (5m), mains lead and instruction manual.
