ADEM - The Next Generation in ISO 6614 and ASTM D1401 Method Compliance

Nov 08 2017 Comments 0

ADEM is perfect instrument for ISO 6614 and ASTM D1401 method compliance with traceable test results via fully automated operation. It represents the next generation in ISO 6614 and ASTM D1401 method compliance for demulsibility/water separability testing . In terms of ISO 6614 and ASTM D1401 methods, the only competative instruments available on the market are either manual or semiautomated ones. In case of high sample throughput these instruments demand continuous attention of manpower.

ADEM features a unique design with pc control enabling fully automated operation and evaluation of measurement results . And it incorporates a state of the art image processing and evaluating algorithm.

ADEM is an ideal tool for Quality Control and R&D laboratories need to perform demulsibility tests of lubricants and turbine oils, compressor oils and engine oils, as well as synthetic fluids used in hydraulic and mechanic systems.


Petroleum industry -1- R&D Laboratories: development of demulsibility additives and/or optimising additive concentration (fields of interest are: luboils/lubricants/diesel fules). Base oil investigation: check and control base oil characteristics due to emulsion forming tendency. Production Luboils/Lubricants: Quality Control of final and intermediate products. Blending sites: high capacity blending plants are using demulsibility test as one of the key parameter of optimising compositions.


Auto Industry - Automotive lubricants: check the demulsibility feature of used motoroils in the function of running miles/kms – with reference of the first fill (non-used lot).

Military Airports - Engine oils, Lubricants: are regulated to check continuously after given period of use in aircrafts (jets, helicopters). Maritime - Marine fuels, marine lubricants: are exposed to mix with sea water. This special method built in the ADEM protocol, when salt-water and marine fuels/lubricants are mixed and water separability feature is observed.

Cosmetics - Base oil check: check and control base oil characteristics due to emulsion forming tendency. This is an important feature when considering creams, soaps and different cosmetic products – being in direct contact with water, body skin, etc.

Pharma, Food: in terms of cream, emulsion and similar products the above procedure is applied.
