Specifically designed for those working in the oil and petroleum industry, the Turbiscan Oil Series is a popular instrument used world-wide to detect destabilisations at an early stage, including coalescence, flocculation, creaming, and sedimentation.
Stability analysis of heavy fuel oil can be undertaken due to an innovative method (ASTM D7061) that provides quick detection of all instabilities.
The instrument works using Static Multiple Light Scattering in both Transmission (T) and Backscattering (BS), to analyse low and high concentration dispersions.
The T & BS signals depend on particle size and concentration. The Turbiscan Oil Series acquires T & BS every 20 microns along the sample height, with scans repeated during ageing time to detect any variation of the signal due to a destabilization, such as particle migration and/or particle size.
Key benefits of the Turbiscan Oil Series include:
- Stability reserve measurement
- High repeatability, accuracy, and objectivity
- Up to 200 times faster than the naked eye
- Only 15 minutes required to determine the stability of heavy fuels and crude oils
- One product means just one stability, and one number.
- State-of-the-art software with 1 click data treatment and report generation
- No calibration or parameters need – just simply dilute in toluene and precipitate with heptane
- A robust and portable instrument to carry out into the field if necessary.
As well as heavy fuels and crude oil, the Turbiscan Oil Series can also measure the effects of additives and blending.
The Turbiscan Oil Series has a compact, lightweight design (<5 kg), which means the unit can be easily transported from the research and development lab to on-field analysis.
