Key Features

Compliance for every sample type

Compliance for every sample type

SVM 3001 Cold Properties complies with a large number of standards and specifications, ensuring fulfillment of the highest product quality requirements. These standards include:

  • Jet fuel (ASTM D1655, Def Stan 91-91, JIG AFQRJOS)
  • Diesel fuel oils (ASTM D975)
  • Biodiesel blends (ASTM D975, ASTM D7467)
  • Fuel oils (ASTM D396, ASTM D6823, ASTM D7666)

With the implemented ASTM-developed bias corrections, you have the ability to report D445 results while enjoying all the benefits of measuring with an SVM according to ASTM D7042.

Flexibility for jet fuel measurements

Flexibility for jet fuel measurements

The exceptional temperature performance of SVM 3001 Cold Properties enables you to reach temperatures as low as -20 °C without the need for external cooling, making it ideally suited for jet fuel certification. Measurement of cloud and freeze point, in addition to kinematic viscosity and density, means that you get all four relevant measurement parameters from a single syringe. Additionally, SVM 3001 Cold Properties provides fast heating and cooling rates of up to 20 °C/minute, enabling time-saving operation and allowing fast temperature scans to investigate the temperature behavior of your samples. This is the ideal kinematic viscometer for not only QC, but also for R&D.

One instrument, unlimited possibilities

One instrument, unlimited possibilities

With its integrated measuring cell, SVM 3001 Cold Properties covers the entire viscosity, density, and temperature range, and gives you the opportunity to measure a wide variety of different samples – not just jet fuel, but also base oils, lubricants, and diesel. The cloud point and freeze point measuring cell provides additional information about cold flow properties of your sample. 

Unprecedented multiparameter measurement

Unprecedented multiparameter measurement

Kinematic viscosity is just one of the parameters you can measure from one syringe. The following parameters are delivered by SVM 3001 Cold Properties according to the latest industry standards, significantly reducing user workload that would otherwise be high due to multiple tests:

  • Kinematic viscosity (ASTM D7042, EN 16896)
  • Density (EN ISO 12185, ASTM D4052)
  • Freeze point (correlation to ASTM D2386)
  • Cloud point (correlation to ASTM D2500)
Unmatched value

Unmatched value

SVM 3001 Cold Properties offers more parameters and delivers more value than any other instrument on the market. Thanks to the unique patented measuring cell design and compact dimensions, the instrument requires only small volumes of solvent for cleaning (min. 1.5 mL). No external counter-cooling is required for measurements at temperatures as low as -20 °C, meaning SVM 3001 Cold Properties also saves your precious lab space. In addition, the low energy consumption of SVM 3001 Cold Properties (max. 250 W) leads to low energy costs and a high level of economic efficiency and sustainability.
