Cold Soak Filtration Apparatus for Biodiesel
Koehler is pleased to introduce a new product: the Dual Cold Soak Filtration Apparatus K46700. It is a newly designed instrument for determining the suitability of a biodiesel blend stock to provide adequate low temperature operability performance by filtration time after cold soak according to ASTM D7501 (Test Method for Determination of Fuel Filter Blocking Potential of Biodiesel Blend Stock by Cold Soak Filtration Test)

The Dual Cold Soak Filtration integrates two tanks and a test station to allow for easier completion of the test method. Tank 1 is set to 40 ± 1 °F (4.5 ± 0.5 °C). This tank is where the 16 hour cold soak period takes place. Tank 2 operates at 77 ± 1°F (25 ± 0.5 °C) and the 2 to 4 hour soak period for the sample occurs here. The vacuum filtration kit is set up on the test station and controlled by the integrated vacuum pump and regulator.

The integration of both baths and a vacuum filtration system into one unit is both unique and efficient. The Dual Cold Soak Filtration Apparatus decreases the amount of space needed to perform the test and allows for the entire test to take place in one standalone instrument rather than multiple pieces of equipment.

For more information on this unit please contact our Product Manager, Vincent Colantuoni:
