AD0942-610 - Oxidation stability tester with aluminium block (ASTM D942)

The apparatus consists of a benchtop case containing a stainless steel tank or an aluminium block with holes for the bombs, both suitable to reach the test temperature of 99°C.

The advantage of the aluminium block toward the water bath is the elimination of periodical maintenance and cleaning: besides the instrument become more robust and safe in use.

Pressure recording is performed by high precision electronic transducers connected to a chart recorder with continuous trace that also prints pressure value for each channel every 15 minutes.
