Assess the relative degree of corrosivity of petroleum products
Test baths can be used to test automative gasoline, natural gasoline, solvents, kerosene, diesel fuel, distillate fuel oil, lubricating oil and other products. A polished copper strip is immersed in 30 mL of sample at elevated temperature. After the test period, the strip is examined for evidence of corrosion and a classification number from one to four is assigned based on a comparison with the ASTM Copper Strip Corrosion Standards.
Test Bomb Baths (7151K59)
- Conform to ASTM D 130; FSPT DT-28-65; IP 154; ISO 2160; DIN 51759; and FTM 791-5325
- Test up to four copper strips simultaneously
- Maximum temperature: 221°F (±1°F)/105°C (±0.5°C)
- Five-gallon bath
Thermostatically controlled water bath immerses copper strip corrosion test bombs at the required depth per ASTM specifications. Baths can be used for testing aviation gasoline, aviation turbine fuel and natural gasoline. Bath is fully insulated and features stainless steel, double-wall construction. Soxhlet reflux condenser and constant water level device maintain proper working depth. Heater range: 0-750 W. Electrical requirements: 115 V 60 Hz, Single Phase, 7.5A or 220-240 V 50/60 Hz, Single Phase, 4A. Dimensions (L x W x H, inches): 12 x 10 x 21; weight : 18 1/2 lbs. Includes four rubber stoppers for bomb openings.
Test Tube Baths (7151K89 and K92)
- Test up to 16 samples at once
- Microprocessor control
- Maximum temperature: 374°F (±2°F)/190°C (±1°C)
- Five-gallon bath
- Use water or heater transfer fluid
Units can be used to test samples that do not require a test bomb such as diesel fuel, fuel oil, automotive gasoline, Stoddard solvent, kerosene and lubricating oil. Temperature controller has a °C/°F switchable digital setpoint and display. Bath is fully insulated and features welded stainless steel double-wall construction with built-in support rack. Equipment is protected by an overtemperature control circuit which automatically interrupts power to the unit should bath temperature exceed programmed cutoff point.
Heater range: 0-750 W. Electrical requirements: 115 V 50/60 Hz, Single Phase, 7.5A or 220-240 V 50/60 Hz, Single Phase, 4A. Dimensions (W x D x H, inches): 15 1/2 x 12 1/2 x 14; weight: 27 lbs.
