• High Temperature Evaporation Loss Tester

High Temperature Evaporation Loss Tester

For determination of evaporation loss of lubricating grease at temperatures from 93-316° C. A controlled flow of heated air is passed over the sample for a specified period. Evaporation loss is measured by the change in sample weight during the test. 

  • Conforms to ASTM D2595 specifications
  • Microprocessor temperature control with digital display and over-temperature cut-off
  • Microprocessor programmable high accuracy temperature control

Performs evaporation loss tests on lubricating greases at temperatures of up to 600°F (316°C). Maintains sample temperature within ±0.3°F while passing heated air over the sample surface at a controlled flow rate. Consists of evaporation cells and aluminum block oven with controls for sample temperature, air temperature and air flow rate. Evaporation cells include grease sample cup, head, eduction tube, cover and thermocouple tube. Aluminum block oven provides efficient response and safe operation at high temperatures. Microprocessor temperature control has °C/°F switchable digital setpoint and display. The operator and equipment are protected by an over-temperature control circuit which automatically interrupts power to the unit when the bath temperature exceeds a programmed cut-off point. Microprocessor PID control provides quick temperature stabilization without overshoot and the bath is protected by an over-temperature control circuit that interrupts power should the bath temperature exceed a programmed cut-off point. Dual LED displays provide actual and setpoint temperature values in °C/°F format. Communications software (RS232, etc.), ramp-to-set and other enhanced features are available as extra cost options. Contact your Koehler representative for information. Separate air preheater controls and flowmeters for each cell permit accurate control of heated air flow to sample surface. Order accessory Digital Thermometer (Cat. No. K29310) to monitor exit air temperature and ASTM 3F or 3C Thermometer for block (sample) temperature. Accessory oil sample cup (Cat. No. K29530) converts evaporation cell for lubricating oil samples.
