DFA-70Xi - Diesel Cloud, Pour, Viscosity and Density Analyzer

Phase Technology new DFA-70Xi analyzer is the first one in the world and only instrument that performs four important diesel fuel tests in one single unit—cloud point, pour point, viscosity and density. And, it does it all in less than 25 minutes!
The DFA-70Xi features a new, side loaded automatic sample injection port. There is no longer a need to manually pipette. The analyzer always draws the precise amount of sample as required by the ASTM method.
The DFA-70Xi is completely self-cleaning, without the need of solvents. Save time and hassle of cleaning, and avoid any risk of damage to the sample cup.
