• Automatic Cloud and Pour Point Analyzer

Automatic Cloud and Pour Point Analyzer



Cold flow properties, such as Cloud Point and Pour Point, indicate how petroleum products behave at low temperatures. The test specimen is cooled at a specified rate and measured periodically. The highest temperature at which a cloud is first detected at the bottom of the test jar is recorded as the cloud point. The lowest temperature at which movement of the specimen is detected is recorded as the pour point.

The Automatic Cloud and Pour Point Analyzer is a state of the art piece of equipment for measuring cloud point by optical detection and pour point with automatic tilt. The Cloud Point is an index of the lowest temperature of a petroleum product or a biodiesel fuels utility for certain applications. Wax crystals of sufficient quantity can plug filters used in some fuel systems. The Pour Point of a petroleum product is an index of the lowest temperature of its utility for certain applications. Flow characteristics, such as pour point can be critical for the correct operation of lubricating oil systems, fuel systems, and petroleum blending and pipeline operations.
