The first and only field proven non-liquid 'dry cylinder' RPVOT (RBOT) instrument used for ASTM D2272 testing. The oil free Quantum™ testers can be used for a number of tests evaluating formulated engine oil, turbine oils, and base oil oxidation resistance. Meets methods ASTM D2272 (RPVOT formerly RBOT), IP 229.
The small, innovative, single-test design eliminates the mess and dangers of hot bath oil and reduces the number or parts for quick test turn-around and interchangability between methods -- dramatically increasing productivity.
A small quantity of oil is mixed with or brought in contact with catalyst within an oxygen-pressurized chamber. The oil sample is rotated at 100 RPM at a 30° angle until the recorded oxygen pressure in the chamber falls rapidly and signals the end of the test. A Software Automation Package for the Quantum™ Oxidation tester is available for monitoring and recording pressure and temperature of up to (4) units each with selectable end point determination options.
