The Tamson ASTM D1298 density apparatus is an apparatus to determine the density of petroleum products by hydrometer. The Tamson ASTM D1298 apparatus is equipped with three jacketed cylinders in a very convenient rack and a TLC15-5 circulator. A Tamson TLC15-5 refrigerator circulates a (cold) flow through the double walls of the cylinders. The TLC15-5 maintains the bath temperature within ±0.25°C of the test temperature required by the method. The PTFE valves ensure fast drainage and cleaning of the tube. The easy detachable leakage tray prevents that portions of the sample are spilled on the workbench. The rack offers full view on the hydrometer. Our special support eliminates the problem of mounting brackets or portions of a thermostatic bath blocking the view. The measuring set-up contains three glass cylinders with lids, a support, and a TLC15-5 circulator. The system offers an interesting price advantage compared to other solutions based on a combination of a thermostatic bath and an external chiller. The apparatus can be used for ASTM D1298, ASTM D287, ASTM D1429, IP 160, API 2547, ASTM D3142, ASTM D6822 and ISO 3675.
