Automated corrosion bath for fuel testing according to ASTM D665/NACE

Dec 20 2021

A combination of innovation and customer demand pushed AD Systems in to developing the CB10 - an automated bath for iron corrosivity testing of fuels and lubricants in accordance with ASTM D665, NACE TM0172, ISO 7120, JIS K2510, and other methods. 

The test preparation has been simplified and the test can be run unattended simultaneously on two positions. The bath was engineered to minimise operator time. After installing a beaker with 300ml of the sample in one of the test positions and selecting the method on the touch screen, the entire procedure is automated: heating, stirring, insertion of test specimen (spindle), water injection, temperature and test time controls. 

Operator safety was also considered by using a direct drive low torque stirring motors. If anything attaches to the stirrer shaft, stirring will be stopped to prevent injury. At the end of the test, the CB10 automatically lifts the test specimen in order to proceed with the rating. 

After the test, the rating of the test specimen can be done either visually, or by using the CT10 automated corrosion rater, the ideal companion of the CB10 bath. Using a digital camera with a specific image analysing algorithm, the CT10 enables quick, accurate and objective rating according to the selected method: The combination of CB10 bath and CT10 rater provides automated and safe testing with precise and fully documented results.
