ASTM D1480 apparatus available!

ASTM D1480 apparatus available!

Tamson Instruments is proud to present its apparatus for ASTM D1480, the density and relative density (specific gravity) of viscous materials by Bingham pycnometer. The apparatus for ASTM D1480 consists of our trusted TV12, a TLC10-3 cooling circulator, and Bingham pycnometers with holders.

The ASTM D1480 method covers two procedures for the measurement of the density of materials which are fluid at the desired test temperature. Its application is restricted to liquids of vapor pressures below 80 kPa (600 mm Hg) and viscosities below 40 000 mm²/s (cSt) at the test temperature. The method is designed for use at any temperature between 20°C and 100°C. It can be used at higher temperatures. For this test method, The liquid sample is introduced into the pycnometer, equilibrated to the desired temperature, and weighed. The density or specific gravity is then calculated from this weight and the previously determined calibration factor, and a
correction is applied for the buoyancy of air.

The same apparatus can be used with 25mL Bingham Pycnometers for ASTM D1217.

New EU regulations for ASTM & IP Mercury in Glass Thermometers

New EU regulations for ASTM & IP Mercury in Glass Thermometers

As of the 10th October 2017 Tamson Instruments BV will not be supplying mercury in glass thermometers.

This is to conform with EU Reach Regulation 2006 restricting the sale of measuring devices that contain mercury.

 Annex XVII to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, original entry 18a 18a.

Mercury CAS No. 7439-97-6

EC No. 231-106-7

This regulation restricted all mercury containing measuring devices intended for industrial and professional usage, not being placed into the market place after 10th April 2014. The restriction in paragraph 5 of the above regulation shall not apply to thermometers exclusively intended to perform tests according to standards that require the use of mercury thermometers until 10 October 2017.

As a result of this regulation Tamson Instruments is no longer able to supply mercury in glass thermometers. However, we are able to supply thermometers with a blue filling that conforms with EU regulations. These thermometers are not hazardous to ship.

Another option is our E20 Thermometer, which can be found here.

SALE! Special offer for TLC80-14DP!

Tamson has a special offer for the TLC80-14DP!

30% discount!

Please check out the price with the discount already included here.

The TLC80-14DP is a low-temperature circulater that can cool to -82°C. The bath has a volume of 14 litres. The bath can be used for general low temperature use but shows excellent heat removal performance i.e. in combination with Cloud and Pour point tests. Low fluid level is detected electronically. The TLC80-14DP is Double Powered, so it has a very large heat removal capacity.

The offer is subject to availability, on a first-come first-serve basis, and valid till the end of 2017.
