Seta Existent Gum Solid Block Bath – Steam or Air – 12200-3

The Seta Existent Gum Solid Block Bath is designed to carry out up to five simultaneous tests for determining existent gum content in fuels by the Jet Evaporation method.

The unit comprises a solid block bath with integral steam superheater, removable taper-fit conical steam / air jet adaptors with copper screens, and a steam/air flow control valve and gauge. The bath has five test wells and a thermometer well. Outlets can be individually checked for uniform flow of air or steam.

Methods: ASTM D381, BIS IS 1448 Part 29, BS 2000 Part 131, IP 131, IP 540, ISO 6246


  • Suitable for use with steam supply in conformity with the relevant test
  • Integral steam superheater
  • Digital temperature control
  • Over-temperature cut-out

The bath has a temperature range of 140 ° to 260 °C and is controlled by a digital temperature controller which displays both the set temperature and the actual bath temperature measured by a probe. The flow of steam or air is adjusted by an inlet control valve and monitored on a Bourdon gauge calibrated for both air and steam.
