OXIDATION STABILITY OF INSULATING AND STEAM TURBINE OILS BY ROTATING BOMB
ASTM D2112, ASTM D2272, ASTM D4742, IP 229
Evaluates the oxidation stability of new and in-service engine, turbine and insulating oils in the presence of water and a copper catalyst.
The Rotating Bomb Oxidation Tester Bath (RBOT) is a 72 liters, temperature controlled, floor standing oil bath.
Temperatures are maintained up to 160°C, in 0.1°C steps by an integral digital temperature controller and read-out.
The high current heater reduces the warm-up time to operating temperature.
A motor driven carriage supports 2 oxidation vessels at an angle of 30° and rotates them at 100 rev/min.
The bath is fitted with a hinged safety guard and motor cut-out to protect the operator from the rotating oxidation vessels.
Storage space, an accessory tray and the bath drain tap are accessible below the control panel.
