Air Release Value System – 15840-0

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

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

A unique slider arrangement allows the user to easily position the test vessel throughout the test cycle.

Methods: ASTM D3427, IP 313, BS 2000-313, ISO 9120


  • A multi-station sample management platform
  • Touch screen display and auto test commands
  • Circulated heating
  • Automated and integrated density monitoring
  • Automatic result calculation
  • Results storage for over 10,000 tests
  • Full LIMS connectivity
  • Quick connectors for ease of sample handling
  • CE marked

Operator Safety
– No need to handle hot sample vessel
– Exhaust filter system extracts noxious flames
– Heating prevented when there is no airflow
– Safety cut-out prevents overheating
– Protective safety shield around the 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 you to move the sample quickly and precisely between test modes

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

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