ASTM D4807 TC16 115V-60Hz
This test method covers the determination of sediment in crude oils by membrane filtration. This test method has been validated for crude oils with sediments up to approximately 0.15 mass %. The Tamson TC16 circulator pumps the bath content filled with silicon oil through the jacketed (double wall) funnel to maintain the crude oil sample at 90°C. Necessary filter support, clamp, rubber stopper, 1000 mL vacuum filtering flask, glass T-piece with ground wire, insulated tubing with connectors, stand with clamps, membrane filters, and a vacuum pump are included. Next to the complete set up, all parts for the set-up can be ordered as a spare part. We deliver other accessories for this method as well. The insulation of the bath and electronic design result in an very stable working temperature of ± 0.02° The set point can be set in steps of 0.1° in the range of 0°C up to 250°C (-148..482°F). The accuracy on the display is displayed in 0.1°C. However the controller has an internal accuracy of 0.01°C. The temperature range is from ambient +5°C to 250°C. Standard available in °C, on request in °F. The bath conforms to CE regulation. It is further equipped with a mechanical resettable safety thermostat. All parts are grounded. Bath, support and funnel are grounded. A braided wire grounds the flask and sample in the vacuum filtering flask.
