KV6 Viscometer Bath - 84200-3


The KV-6 Viscometer Bath is a temperature-controlled bath that maintains the temperature of viscometer tubes, which are used to measure the viscosity of liquid petroleum products.

The instrument consists of an oil-filled temperature-controlled bath. The bath holds up to six standard viscometer tubes, which can be viewed through the glass panel at the front of the instrument. Each aperture has a cover to minimise heat loss when not in use. LEDs illuminate the bath so that you can view the viscometer tubes more easily.



  • Accommodates up to 6 viscometer tubes
  • Temperature range ambient to 150 °C
  • Temperature stability ±0.01 °C up to and including 100 °C , ±0.03 °C above 100 °C
  • Digital temperature control with Thermostir Plus
  • Oil, silicone fluid or water filled depending on temperature of use
  • Double wall glass front panel ensures optimum insulation and reduce heat loss
  • Integral safety features
  • Clear and precise reading of viscometer tubes

An uninterrupted view of viscometer tubes is provided by an oversize double glazed front panel with the outer panel made from toughened safety glass to BS 3463. The outer panel is removable for easy cleaning.

A removeable and recessed 6 place top plate has 62 mm apertures and covers with provision for two thermometer holders. The recessed design allows viscometer tubes to sit low in the bath and provides you with a much improved vision of the upper timing marks on the viscometer tubes.

The instrument can hold seven viscometer tubes when used with the optional viscometer tube plate 84202-0 and 51 mm viscometer tube holders. A digitally controlled thermostir unit heats and stirs the bath, maintaining the temperature between 37 and 150 °C. A baffle helps ensure that the temperature is uniform throughout the bath.

When performing tests in higher ambient temperatures, you can connect an external cooling supply to the instrument’s internal cooling coil. The coolant circulates through the internal cooling coil, providing a temperature differential and allowing the thermostir to control the bath temperature more efficiently. The 99300-4 Mini Low Temperature Bath/Circulator can supply chilled water to the KV-6 Viscometer Bath for use at high ambient temperatures.

The large 50 litre capacity ensures minimum temperature recovery time after loading of bath, improving sample throughput.

AFIDA – Indicated Cetane Number Analyser - SA6000-0

AFIDA is a revolutionary development providing you with a fully automated way of determining Indicated Cetane Number (ICN) of diesel and diesel related fuels. The AFIDA can analyse multiple samples in sequence and selects the samples using the 36-place autosampler. Only a small sample volume of 40 ml is required per test with a short analysis time of approximately 25 minutes.

The analyser uses a Constant Volume Combustion Chamber (CVCC) and incorporates a unique and patented high pressure injection system that generates fine fuel droplets similar to modern common rail injectors in most diesel engines.

An ultra robust temperature controlled piezo electric injector provides rapid switching and highly repeatable fuel metering, offering you improved performance and consistency when compared with solenoid controlled injectors and pintle type nozzles.


  • Excellent correlation to ASTM D613, IP 41 and BS EN ISO 5165, BS 2000-41, ISO 5165
  • Wide sample types - middle distillates, blend components, biodiesel, FAME, XTL, HVO, heating oil and Jet A1
  • Suitable for use with Cetane improvers
  • Calibrated with industry approved PRFs over the range 35 to 85 ICN
  • Precise and reproducible software controlled determination of ICN
  • Results saved to PC or for download
  • Stable calibration - fixed test conditions eliminates routine temperature tuning
  • Low running costs, single gas supply for combustion air

Direct correlation to ASTM D613 (ISO 5165) engine tests:
The traditional Cetane Engine methods establish an ignition delay period for the test fuel which is referenced to a primary reference fuel scale.

Existing Constant Volume Combustion Chamber (CVCC) technology provides a Derived Cetane Number (DCN) result based on a historical averaged correlation equation applied to the ignition delay of the fuel sample.

The new generation AFIDA technology is a significant step forward as it uses the same Primary Reference Fuels as specified in the Cetane Engine method to provide a calibrated cetane number measurement.

The AFIDA has multiple integral safety monitoring functions to ensure the system is running safely and accurately.

The AFIDA also has safety functions in place to prevent the system from overheating in the event of a power failure.

Industry stakeholders recognise the advantages of the AFIDA with CEN, ASTM and the Energy Institute forming new working groups to develop test methodology; IP 617 is already published as an approved test method.

Inter-laboratory studies showed outstanding precision and excellent correlation when compared with samples with known Cetane Numbers. The coefficient of determination (R²) is 0.98. An investigation into carryover with 2-EHN Cetane Improver showed no effect.

H2S Vapour Phase Processor (VPP) - SA4015-0

The Vapour Phase Processor (VPP) is used with the H2S Analyser (SA4000-3) and removes components that may affect the accuracy of the results, such as toluene, xylene, thiols (mercaptans) and alkyl sulphides.

The VPP accessory is designed to promote the safer use of residual and distillate fuels, recognising the fact that the industry is entering into a new realm of multi-blend products driven by increasing environmental regulation.

The H2S Analyser with VPP is an excellent tool for supporting product Quality Control and safety, ensuring you are given better protection against the supply of poor quality fuels. It is also ideal for both product remediation treatment of feedstock components and off-spec products with fast repeat sample measurement capability.


  • Proved to eliminate the effects of chemical interference
  • Improved precision and accuracy
  • Distillate and residual fuel samples, crude oil, plus broader range of petroleum products
  • Cost effective

H2S Analysis of Crude Oil

Many crude oils come out of the well with high levels of H2S, but a stabilisation process usually reduces this level so the fuel is safe to handle, store and transport.

The H2S Analyser combined with the VPP offers a fast and robust means of determining H2S levels to ensure efficient treatment of crudes. The instrument provides a cost effective alternative to traditional methods which cannot offer a true indication of H2S, especially at low gas levels.

For further information about H2S Analysis of Crude Oil click here

How does the VPP work?

Gases emitted from the H2S Analyser test vessel are passed through a cooled sorbent cartridge before they are measured by the electrochemical sensor. Hydrogen Sulfide passes through the sorbent cartridge whereas methyl mercaptans, dimethyl sulphide and other volatile chemicals are slowed or trapped by the cartridge to avoid contamination.
