Heavily insulated stainless steel cabinet with three-layer refractory top provides excellent heat retention
- Conforms to ASTM D524 and related specifications
Determine the carbon residue of your sample which provides an indication of the deposit-forming tendencies of fuels. Simply insert up to five samples; the furnace quickly reaches the test temperature of 1022°F (550°C). The microprocessor temperature control keeps 2°F (1°C) stability. Apparatus features digital temperature setting, overtemperature control, ceramic band heater with cast iron block, and heavily insulated stainless steel cabinet.
Optional communication software retrieves temperature data and automatically performs calculations of carbon residue in real-time when also using a balance with RS-232 output. Software prompts the user at each step of the testing procedure. Export data and graphs to Microsoft Excel® or other spreadsheet programs; or send data directly to a printer. Data is saved in a database format for determining averages, standard deviation, and ASTM test repeatability.
