Showing results for: Cloud Point
The icon Cloud Point analyser determines the lowest temperature at which a fuel may be used without wax formation. This indicates the lowest ambient temperature at which a diesel fuel can be used.
A small amount of sample is cooled until the cloud point is reached - this point is detected by an optical detector. Cooling is done using a Peltier-based thermoelectric cooler, and if the sample is too cold the Peltier control can be reversed to warm it.
For more information, visit the Cloud Point analyser page.
The obtained results are compatible with those of standard cloud point test methods such as ASTM D2500 and ASTM D5771/2/3.
