ASTM D525: Oxidation Stability of Fuels

FORZA

FORZA Model: OX-525-B
Heated Block Bath with Automatic Data Acquisition System for Oxidation Stability Testing as per ASTM D525

Key Features

  • Heated Metal Block – No harmful oils or dangerous steam needed
  • Highly accurate/precise, microprocessor-based temperature controller with +/- 0.1 Deg C
  • Built-in data acquisition system-15.6" touchscreen
  • High-purity stainless steel line oxygen charging unit
  • DAQ system uses high-performance touch-screen computer with Intel processor technology
  • Built-in safety features within the hardware and software

Apparatus

The Forza OX-525-B is the latest instrument available from Forza International to perform the testing and analysis of samples in compliance with the ASTM D525 test method. Also known as the Oxidation Stability of Gasolines by the Induction Method. The OxyPlus is developed to ensure the reliability and performance of the instrument over the long term, with a strong insistence on safety. With core technology being the heated metal block, Forza has integrated world class technology to ensure temperature is held within +/- 0.1 Deg C of the user inputed temperature, which complies with ASTM D525. Layered on top of the technology are both hardware and software based safety features, like an automatic shut-off when temperature exceeds a certain limit.

High-purity stainless steel line oxygen charging unitcomprise of Regulator and braided hose with quick connects for rapid filling of the pressure vessels:

  • High-purity 316 stainless steel bar stock body construction
  • High-purity 316 stainless steel diaphragms
  • Metal to metal seals minimize diffusion of contaminants
  • 2” delivery pressure gauge
  • Bonnet ported and threaded to pipe gases away from work area
  • 10-micron metal filter protects the seat from contamination
  • 1/4” compression tube inlet/outlet connection

Integrated Data Acquisition System:

The integrated DAQ system saves the customer significant effort, time, and space as opposed to using a desktop computer. The OxyPlus DAQ system includes state of the art software that automates the data acquisition and analysis of the pressure coming from the samples and calculates the induction point of the sample. The software is fully ASTM D525 compliant. A database system is also integrated into the software to ensure clients. have access to all their sample data and historical results.

Safety Features:

  • Hardware safety limit for very high temperature
  • DAQ system can be password protected
  • Software leak testing password protected
  • Insulation around and on top of the heated block
