Highlights of Turbiscan Oil Series

Heavy fuel stability

Turbiscan OIL SERIES is designed for studies of asphaltenes, dispersant efficiency, w/o demulsification, blend compatibility...all in accordance with ASTM D7061.

Measurement of stability

 > Quantitative monitoring of dispersion stability
> Shelf life & long term stability analysis
> Migration velocity

Portable and robust

Turbiscan OIL SERIES is designed for R&D labs and thanks to its compact design and light weight (<5kg) it can be easily transported for on-field analysis.

Quick detection of instabilities

Aggregation, agglomeration, floculation, sedimentation, creaming ...can be detected, monitored and characteized within minutes thanks to rapid scan frequency.
