K12230 High Temperature Oxidation Bath, Convertible

Test Method
Various methods are available for testing the resistance to oxidation and/or the corrosiveness of lubricants, insulating oils, hydraulic oils and distillate fuel oils. The samples are subjected to a metered flow of air at elevated temperatures, sometimes in the presence of a metal catalyst.

Features and Benefits
• Conforms to various ASTM, Federal and International Standards

• Removable racks hold different types of glassware for different tests

• Equipped with flowmeters or digital mass flow controls to measure and control the required flow rates

• Microprocessor digital temperature control

K12230 High Temperature Oxidation Bath, Convertible
High temperature liquid bath for oxidation stability and corrosiveness tests at temperatures of up to 200°C. Available in different configurations for convertibility between several oxidation stability and corrosivity test methods including Cummins oxidation test. Removable rack/top plate assemblies remove and install with minimum effort to easily convert the bath between test methods. For most test methods, twelve sets of glassware can be accommodated in each rack assembly. Select flowmeters or digital mass flow control to maintain air flow at the required rates. Microprocessor PID control provides quick temperature stabilization without overshoot, and the bath is protected by an over-temperature control circuit that interrupts power should bath temperature exceed a programmed cut-off point. Dual LED displays provide actual and setpoint temperature values in °C/°F format. Communication software (RS232, etc.) ramp-to-set and other enhanced features are available as extra cost options. Contact your Koehler representative for information.
