Penetrometer Bath

Penetrometer Bath
Conforms to ASTM and related specifications
Conditions petroleum samples and others requiring close temperature control prior to or during testing
For use with manual and microprocessor penetrometer models
Digital temperature control with low-liquid and overtemperature safety cut off

Constant temperature water bath for conditioning samples prior to a penetration test. Full visibility bath has a large shelf to accommodate a wide range of sample containers, including all containers used in ASTM tests.
Sample containers can be left in the bath during the penetration test if required. The base of the Koehler manual penetrometer can be placed directly on the shelf of the bath, or the head assembly of the digital automatic model can be reversed to overhang the bath. Microprocessor digital temperature control maintains bath liquid temperature with ±0.05°C stability throughout the operating range. A large LED provides bath temperature readout in switchable °C/°F format and a dual-speed circulating pump assures temperature uniformity. The bath is protected by a separate adjustable overtemperature thermostat and a low liquid cut-off. A built-in cooling coil is provided for circulating a refrigerated coolant or tap water if needed.

Conforms to the specifications of:
ASTM D5, D217, D937, D1321, D1403, D2884, D5329
Temperature Range: Ambient to 70°C
Temperature Stability: 0.05°C (0.1°F)
