5 Reasons

Determination of gum content in fuels

The gum content is the residue of aircraft fuels, motor gasoline, and other volatile distillates which cannot be evaporated under a flow of air or steam. Like all other Anton Paar solutions for measuring various petroleum properties, Anton Paar’s gum tester is designed for maximum safety. The system’s unique multifunctional head reduces the risk of burn injuries. The gum tester works according to ASTM D381, ISO 6246, EN 6246, JIS K 2261, DIN 51784, FTM 791-3302, IP 131, IP 540.

Convenient and time-saving operation

The gum tester has a unique multifunctional head which is specially designed for the safe and simultaneous positioning of all jet tubes. This saves about ten minutes of time for each measurement. All conical jets can be lifted and lowered by one single turn. The simultaneous positioning of the conical jets not only enables a fast start of the measurement but also offers a guided positioning to prevent incorrect assembling.

Highest level of safety to protect the user

In contrast to other potentially dangerous setups, Anton Paar’s gum tester provides the highest level of safety. Due to the design of the unique multifunctional head it is not necessary to assemble the preheated instrument or manually handle any hot parts. Different safety features help protect the user.

Measurement of emulsion stability

The Anton Paar emulsifier DH 5 measures the ability of petroleum oils or synthetic fluids to separate from water in water-oil emulsions. The Herschel emulsifier is equipped with all the components you require for complete compliance with the standard methods ASTM D1401, ISO 6614.

Convenient and fast sample throughput

This emulsifier comes with 8 test places in addition to 2 built-in pre-tempering places for the sample preparation.

Due to the compact design the stirrer head can rotate over all 8 test vessels and is locked accurately in position in no time.

The digital interface allows you to check the instrument status and all necessary parameters including the test time for each test place at a glance.
