Thin Film Aniline Point Apparatus



Aniline point is used to characterize pure hydrocarbons and to indicate the aromatic content of hydrocarbon mixtures. Equal volumes of aniline and sample or sample plus n-heptane are stirred together while being heated at a controlled rate. After the two phases become miscible, the mixture is cooled at a controlled rate and the temperature at which the two phases separate is the aniline point or mixed aniline point of the sample.

  •  Conforms to ASTM D611 and related specifications

For aniline point and mixed aniline point determinations according to Method B. Stirs aniline-sample mixture in a borosilicate glass thin film tube suspended in a heating bath. Thin film of mixture flows over a light well illuminated by a variable 6V lamp. Adjust heating rate per specifications using accessory Powertrol Heater. When lamp filament brightens inside well, allow mixture to cool until the two phases separate as indicated by obscuring of the lamp filament. Consists of thin film tube; 400mL Borosilicate Glass beaker; cover assembly with bath stirrer; sample pump rotor and cooling coil; 6V lamp with line cord; and drive motor. Positive drive pulley system rotates sample and bath stirrers. Accessory Powertrol Heater has variable stepless control and a reference dial for repeatable control of heating rate. Porcelain refractory top plate shields 1000W heater and has a positioning well for the Borosilicate Glass bath. Low voltage receptacle in heater housing accepts line cord of 6V lamp.
