Air Release Value Apparatus, 15840-0

The Seta Air Release Value Apparatus is designed to determine the air release properties of hydrocarbon based oils in accordance with ASTM, IP and other methods.

The apparatus is a benchtop instrument with integrated density balance, heater, temperature control system, pressure regulation and microprocessor based control system.

A unique slider arrangement allows easy positioning of the sinker and movement throughout the test cycle.

Methods: ASTM D3427, BS 2000 Part 313, DIN 51 381, IP 313, ISO 9120, NF T60-149

Operator Safety:
– No need to handle hot sample vessel
– Exhaust filter system extracts noxious flames
– Heating prevented when there is no air flow
– Safety cut-out prevents overheating
– Protective safety shield around vessel

Ease of use:
– Removes traditional operator problems
– Sinker is permanently fixed to balance and sample raised up over it
– A mechanical vessel platform allows sample to be quickly and precisely moved between test modes

Precision and Accuracy:
– Automatic timing and regulated aeration ensures stable density and test repeatability

Enhanced Test Throughput:
– Temperature control minimises sample heat loss and speeds up start of test
– Automated test sequence optimises time take for each stage of test
– Quick connectors on glass vessels minimise assembly and cleaning time
– Allows preheated samples to be tested in rapid succession
