The ASTM D565 (mineral oil) and ASTM D612 (paraffin wax) test methods cover the determination whether the sample conforms to the standard quality required for pharmaceutical use. For these tests, the sample needs to be heated. The robust Tamson TC16 is an excellent solution for this sample heating. Tamson can supply the TC16 with the prescribed glassware and eight positions for heating of the sample. Optionally, we can also deliver the colour comparator that is required in the test method.
The temperature can be set from ambient +5°C to 250°C. The wetted parts in the TC16 are made from stainless steel. The TC16 is used for precise temperature control and offers high reliability for use under rough circumstances. The insulation of the bath and electronic design result in a stable working temperature of ± 0.02°C. The set point temperature can be set in steps of 0.1°C in the range of 0°C up to 250°C (32°F..482°F). The accuracy on the display is displayed in 0.1°C. However the controller has an internal accuracy of 0.01°C. This two decimal-readout also is available from the optional RS232 and the free Tamcom software. The bath is equipped with a cooling coil for counter-cooling. The bath conforms to CE regulation. It is further equipped with a mechanical resettable safety thermostat and a drain to empty the bath.
