• Automatic Saybolt and ASTM Colorimeter

Automatic Saybolt and ASTM Colorimeter

ASTM Color: For the visual determination of the color of a wide variety of petroleum products, such as lubricating oils, heating oils, diesel fuel oils, and petroleum waxes.

Saybolt Color: Determines the color of refined oils such as undyed motor and aviation gasoline, jet propulsion fuels, naphthas and kerosene, and, in addition, petroleum waxes and pharmaceutical white oils.

  • Conforms to ASTM D156, D1500, D6045 and related specifications
  • Designed for color measurement of mineral oils, waxes and other petroleum products
  • Spectral Range 420-710nm

High precision spectrophotometer for objective color analysis of petroleum fuels, oils, waxes and petrochemicals according to the Saybolt and ASTM Color scales. When measuring Saybolt Color of clear, water-white products, the long sample path length enables the K13150 to obtain precise color measurements without multiplying errors.
