Ageing characteristic of lubricanting oils

The apparatus consists of a benchtop case hosting the heating block and a frame supporting the stirring mechanism. The block has a series of jackets for the sample containers: a turntable permits to assemble the sample containers before putting them in the jackets all together. The block can reach temperatures up to 150°C +/- 0.1°C: it is heated by means of a coaxial heater. The stirring device is actuated by means of an electronically piloted gear reduced motor connected to a cam: it is regulated for 25 rpm.
  • Enamel finished steel case with robust base to support the heating block.
  • Aluminium alloy machined circular heater with a series of jackets for sample tubes.
  • Water manifold with a series of hose connectors for condensers connection.
  • Water manifold for condenser sink.
  • Stroke mechanism that dips the copper coil in and out the oil under test 25 times per minute.
  • Adjustable stroke counter that stops the mechanism after the desired number of strokes.
  • Microprocessor controlled thermoregulator with PID action and built-in digital display 0.1 °C accuracy showing the temperature and the set-point. Four buttons easy-to-use keyboard to preset working temperature. Probe: Pt100 RTD. Regulation accuracy: ± 0.1°C.
  • Stainless steel heater.
  • Safety device that cuts off the power supply and light a lamp on the control panel in case of overheating of the heating block.
  • Easy access control box placed on the left side of the apparatus containing all the electronic and electrical components: anodized aluminium control panel with english written indications.
  • English written user manual.
  • For 220 V/50 Hz connections. Power consumption: 2500 W.
  • Dimensions (l x w x h): mm 550 x 550 x 1000 approx. Weight: 80 kg approx.
  • CE marked.
  • Without glassware and copper coils.
