Improve Traceability and Profitability in Cold Behaviour Analysis

Aug 17 2017 Comments 0

Cold behaviour analysis finds applications in various areas. In diesel fuel analysis the Cold Filter Plugging Point (CFPP) analysis is a key element and is measured according ASTM D6371, while in jet analysis Freezing Point analysis will be at the top of the list (ASTM D7153). In the lubricants and grease industry, Pour and Cloud Point analysis is performed frequently. In the market there is excellent automated equipment available such as the PAC OptiFZP for freezing point analysis who will perform accurate analysis according to the standard method.

Important analysis comes with a great risk, falling back on the standard method is not enough to ensure traceable results. To eliminate deviations of your analyser’s results compared to other equipment, European Lab Services (ELS) provides trustworthy verification of petroleum analysers such as the OptiFPP for CFPP analysis and makes sure each step of the ASTM D6371 or EN 116 is checked thoroughly. This verification is of enormous importance in order to benefit most from an analyser: the result accuracy and traceability is guaranteed, any discussion concerning the results is eliminated and the proactive verification approach will heavily reduce risk of downtime.

The on-site verification program for a CFPP analyser describes the calibration of the temperature sensor on 4 points in an accredited lab and verification of the display temperature, verification of suction time and differential pressure. The offsets are programmed and verified. The system will be evaluated with a standard reference product and a ISO 17025 certificate will be delivered.

European Lab Services (ELS) is the only company worldwide performing on-site ISO 17025 accredited verification for petroleum analysers for cold behaviour testing.
