Air Release Value System - 15840-0

ASTM D3427
IP 313
BS 2000-313
ISO 9120

The Seta Air Release Value System is designed to determine the air release properties of hydrocarbon based oils in accordance with ASTM, IP and other methods.

The system comprises of a benchtop instrument with integrated density balance, heater, temperature control system, pressure regulation and microprocessor based control system.

A unique slider arrangement allows the user to easily position the test vessel throughout the test cycle.

Additional Information

Operator Safety
- No need to handle hot sample vessel
- Exhaust filter system extracts noxious flames
- Heating prevented when there is no air flow
- Safety cut-out prevents overheating
- Protective safety shield around vessel

Ease of Use:
- Removes traditional operator problems
- Sinker is permanently fixed to balance and sample raised up over it
- A mechanical vessel platform allows you to move the sample quickly and precisely between test modes

Precision and Accuracy:
- Automatic timing and regulated aeration ensures stable density and test repeatability

Enhanced Test Throughput:
- Temperature control minimises sample heat loss and speeds up start of test
- Automated test sequence optimises time take for each stage of test
- Quick connectors on glass vessels minimise assembly and cleaning time
- Allows preheated samples to be tested in rapid succession
