A Turbiscan is the ideal instrument for ageing and shelf life testing of emulsions, suspensions, dispersions and foam.
Stability results are achieved 200 times faster than the naked eye and unlike a particle size analyser, no product dilution is required.
The Turbiscan can be used to follow the stability of many commonly used materials, including:-
• Drinks emulsion stability
• Measured dose inhaler (MDI)
• Asphaltene precipitation
Please contact us to arrange for testing of you samples. The stability testing service is free of charge and we can show you how the Turbiscan could benefit you.
HIGH-THROUGHPUT STABILITY ANALYZER
High throughput screening is more and more useful to shorten the formulations time-to-market. Turbiscan AGS integrates the Turbiscan LAB, a robot, a storage station and a smart software for automatic sample handling and treatment. This concept enables an automated management of aging tests from sample storage at different temperatures to shelf-life determination.

Turbiscan oil series
STABILITY ANALYSER FOR CRUDE & FUEL OILS – meets ASTM D7061The recent introduction and requirement to use low sulphur fuel oils puts demands on heavy fuel oil testing. Long established tests are giving inconclusive results. The Turbiscan® Oil Series ASTM D7061 and allows the stability analysis of heavy fuel oil thanks to an innovative method.
HEAVY FUEL STABILITY
Turbiscan OIL SERIES is designed for studies of asphaltenes, dispersant efficiency, w/o demulsification, blend compatibility...all in accordance with ASTM D7061.
MEASUREMENT OF STABILITY
> Quantitative monitoring of dispersion stability
> Shelf life & long term stability analysis
> Migration velocity
PORTABLE AND ROBUST
Turbiscan OIL SERIES is designed for R&D laboratories, its compact design and light weight (<5kg) it can be easily transported for use in the field.
QUICK DETECTION OF INSTABILITIES
Aggregation, agglomeration, floculation, sedimentation, creaming ...can be detected, monitored and characteized within minutes thanks to rapid scan frequency.

what can a turbiscan detect
> MIGRATION ANALYSIS
Local variation of light intensity corresponds to phases formation.
> TURBISCAN STABILITY INDEX
Turbiscan Stability Index is a one-click parameter to easily rank the stability of many samples in a kinetic way or in a data table.
The higher the TSI is, the less stable the product is.
> SIZE VARIATION ANALYSIS
Global variation of light intensity corresponds to size increase.
> NO MECHANICAL STRESS
When it comes to shelf-life, and real-life evolution of the end-products, it makes no sense to apply a mechanical stress to a sample. Our measurements are always performed at rest, without any external stress. That way, you can be sure that the results you get are representative of what will happen in real life, only detected way earlier!
