Automated Pour Point Analyzer



This test covers the determination of pour point of petroleum products by an automatic instrument that tilts the test jar during cooling and detects movement of the surface of the test specimen with an optical device. This test method is designed to cover the range of temperatures from -66 to +51 C. 

After preliminary heating, the test specimen is inserted into the automatic pour point apparatus. After starting the program, the specimen is cooled according to the cooling profile listed in the ASTM Method and examined at either 1 C or 3 C intervals. The lowest temperature at which movement of the specimen is detected, by the automatic equipment, is displayed as the pour point.

The K77000 Automated Pour Point Analyzer is a state of the art piece of equipment for measuring pour point with the Automatic Tilt Method. 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.
