AD Systems Announce Delivery of 100th DR10

Oct 18 2017 Read 750 Times

Thermal Oxidation Stability of Aviation Turbine Fuels, ASTM D3241 is universally used by the industry to measure the high temperature stability of aviation turbine fuels. The ASTM D3241 Method is required to be run on every batch of jet fuel produced according to ASTM D1655 or DEF STAN 91-91 specifications. In this test method, the fuel is pumped through a heater tube at a fixed flow rate and for a specified period of time. The fuel is pass or fail rated according to the amount of deposit formed on the heater tube at a specified temperature.

The innovative DR10 instrument uses the spectral reflectance technique (ITR – ASTM D3241 – Annex 2) for precise measurement of deposit thickness in nanometers. This stand-alone, compact instrument can be easily installed in any location in minutes. The operation is based on a powerful light source, a spectrometer with a fibre optic probe and specially designed application software.

AD Systems was the first manufacturer to offer a compact laboratory device dedicated to all applications, research and quality control. Today, AD Systems is by far the number one for this test and we are very proud to announce that the hundredth DR10 has recently been delivered. We would like to thank all the laboratories that have trusted us.
