K10401 Oxidation Stability of Fuels, Solid Block Baths

Test Method
Provides an indication of the tendency of gasoline and aviation fuels to form gum in storage. The sample is oxidized inside a stainless steel pressure vessel initially charged with oxygen at 100psi (689kPa) and heated in a solid block bath. The amount of time required for a specified drop in pressure (gasoline) or the amount of gum and precipitate formed after a specific aging period (aviation fuels) is determined.

Solid Block Oxidation Baths
Insulated aluminum block baths available in two or four-unit capacity. Baths feature microprocessor temperature control with built-in overtemperature protection and dual LED displays for the setpoint and actual values in °C/°F format. The solid block design offers operating advantages over the boiling water baht, and meets temperature contrl and other requirements of ASTM and related methods. It should be noted, however, that many applicable specifications for this test method call for a liquid bath medium. Housed in an insulated steel cabinet with chemical-resistant polyurethane enamel finish. Includes lids for pressure vessel ports. Order thermometer separately.
