Microprocessor based penetrometer loaded with advanced features to provide ease of operation and highly reproducible consistency measurements of petroleum products.
For “worked penetration’’ and “prolonged worked penetration” tests to determine consistency of lubricating greases. Consists of single or dual steel ASTM grease workers mounted on a sturdy base and driven by a powerful gear reduction motor. Meets ASTM specifications for stroke length and rate.
Designed for ASTM penetration tests on petroleum products and for consistency tests on a wide range of food products, cosmetics, pastes and other solid to semi-solid products. Features a full penetration range of 0-62.0 mm with 1⁄10 mm subdivisions (0-620 penetration scale). Accommodates cones and needles to perform all of the ASTM tests on lubricating greases, asphalts, petroleum waxes and petrolatums.
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.
