Salt in Crude Analyser - 99700-6

ASTM D3230
IP 265

The Seta Salt in Crude Analyser is a robust and portable instrument for determining the chloride (salt) content of crude oils in full conformity to ASTM D3230, IP 265 and equivalent test methods.

The Seta Salt in Crude Analyser is pre-calibrated and automatically displays salt concentration measurements in g/m3 or lbs/1000bbl (pounds per thousand barrels), this avoids the need to mix salt calibration standards and makes testing a simple and fast procedure.

Supplied with beaker and sensor support stands, an optional bench top stand is also available. The analyser also features an interchangeable plug-in sensor and can be operated by either battery or mains power.
