ASTM D1480 TV12 115V-60Hz

Tamson TV12 visibility bath is specially designed for tests that require ultra-precise temperature control, or processes that need to be followed visually. The TV12 can be used for ASTM D1480 and ASTM D1217 tests.The ASTM D1480 method covers two procedures for the measurement of the density of materials which are fluid at the desires test temperatures. ASTM D1217 is to cover the measurement of the density of pure hydrocarbons or petroleum distillates boiling between 90°C and 110°C that can be handled in a normal fashion as a liquid at the specified test temperatures of 20°C and 25°C.

Tamson viscometer and Tamson calibration baths are specially designed for tests that require ultra-precise temperature control, or processes that need to be followed visually, e.g. viscometry (conforms to ASTM D445, IP 71),thermometer and sensor calibration, density and reaction rate measurement, etc.
The stainless steel construction ensures exceptionally stable temperatures which is further improved by an ingenious stirring mechanism with baffle plates. All wetted parts are made of stainless steel and brass, providing resistance against all usual bath fluids. The bath is fitted with adjustable feet for leveling. The cover of the bath has 4 round 51ø mm holes with lids, for suspending glass capillary viscometers in holders. To work at temperatures lower than ambient plus 5_C, use of cooling must be made. Cooling fluid can be pumped through the cooling coil inside the apparatus. Tap water or a combination with the TLC10-3 can be used for this purpose. The windows are formed with two panes of tempered safety glass separated by 20 mm air space. A permanent light is located in the top plate to supply clear light and guarantee optimal visibility inside the bath. A bath overflow outlet protects against expanding bath oil when the bath filling is too high.
A vane type stirrer with maintenance free bearings moves the bath fluid past a special heater then from under the main baffle plate, thus specifically directing the fluid creating an optimal temperature and excellent uniformity.
All baths can be operated from ambient +5 up to +120°C (..302°F). With the use of the built-in cooling coil, span lies 5°K above the temperature of the cooling liquid. The bath conforms to CE-regulation. Further the bath is equipped with a mechanical over temperature device which trips when in case of malfunction the bath exceeds the pre-set maximum temperature. This feature guarantees safe around the clock operation.
The system overall accuracy is within ± 0.005°K. After the bath has stabilised the set point may be more accurately adjusted in the range of –5.00° to + 5.00°, if necessary.
