The Tamson ASTM D849 apparatus can be used for the detection of the corrosiveness to copper from aromatic hydrocarbons. The apparatus consists of a robust six position TC40 circulator bath and it is standard delivered with six sets of glassware (250 mL flask and condenser). The cover of the bath has six openings, each with a lid and stand-rods with clamps to hold the glassware in the same position. The temperature range is from ambient +5°C to 250°C. All accessories for this test method are supplied by Tamson.
The insulation of the bath and electronic design result in a very stable working temperature of ± 0.02° The set point can be set in steps of 0.1° in the range of 0°C up to 250°C (-148..482°F). The accuracy on the display is displayed in 0.1°C. However the controller has an internal accuracy of 0.01°C. Standard available in °C, on request in °F. When not used for copper corrosion tests, the pump can be used to circulate the bath content to an external application. The robust TC40 bath conforms to CE regulation. It is further equipped with a mechanical resettable safety thermostat. Optional is a low liquid float (P/N 07T0080).
