Accurate and Reliable Viscosity Results While Meeting ASTM D445

Apr 17 2013 Read 1859 Times

Viscosity is an essential property used to characterize petroleum fuels and lubricants performance. For a long time “green fuels”, such as biodiesel, were reserved to niche producers. Now, they are blended with traditional fossil diesel fuels to meet worldwide environmental regulations, which impact the finished product’s viscosity properties. As a direct consequence, the ASTM D6751 and EN 14214 specifications are requesting biofuels & biofuels blends meet ASTM D445.

The PAC Herzog HVM 472 is the state-of-art lab solution for kinematic viscosity determination of fuels and lubricants, in full compliance with the ASTM D445 standard. The HVM 472 has several unique benefits including:
