The robust Tamson ASTM D3231 constant temperature bath can be used to heat samples for Phosphorus in Gasoline tests. The bath can hold eight volumetric flasks submerged to the mark. The temperature needed for the test method is between 82.2°C and 87.8°C. The Tamson ASTM D3231 constant temperature bath is capable to heat the samples to this temperature exactly as presribed in ASTM D3231 and IP 454. The apparatus can be used as a circulator or bath. The bath fluid is heated via a micro-processor controlled heating element. When working below ambient temperature cooling fluid can be circulated through the cooling coil to lower the bath temperature. The bath is equipped with fluid level detection. The microprocessor controlled heating with auto tune function guarantees precise temperature control. The bath temperature can be set to a maximum of 200°C (392°F) in steps of 0.1 degree. The overall system accuracy is ±0.02°K. A top lid is included.
The bath conforms to CE regulation. It further is equipped with multiple safety features in order to guarantee safe around the clock operation. A mechanical safety thermostat protects the bath against high temperatures and will automatically reset itself after switching the bath off and on again. The safety thermostat can be set between ambient and +300°C. In case of over temperature electronics and motor are switched off. The pump motor is protected against mechanical overload via a resettable fuse. Standard available in °C, on request in °F. A pump circulates the bath content or provides external circulation. The pump pressure is 300 mBar and the maximum flow is 7.5 litres per minute with no counter pressure.
