PAC introduces ViscoSure process viscosity analyzer

March 29, 2016 - PAC introduces ViscoSure process viscosity analyzer that combines oscillating piston technology with tight temperature control to provide precise viscosity analysis.

With internal temperature control without using the traditional external oil bath, the ViscoSure requires little to no maintenance bringing maximum instrument uptime and low cost of ownership. The fast and reliable measurements allow for precise and continuous adjustment of the process, while maintaining a high correlation with ASTM D7483 and ASTM D445 test methods.

Performance, reliability, and precision are critical for viscosity measurements in bottom of the tower applications. ViscoSure is designed specifically for these complex applications:

  • Asphalt: (135°C): With its fast cycle time, it replicates lab results in real time, avoiding the process of sending material to the slop tank to be adjusted and retested.
  • Heavy Fuel Oil (50°C): ViscoSure helps refiners reduce overblending of costly diesel.
  • Lubrication Oil (40°C/100°C): ViscoSure makes it possible to fine-tune the process performance to improve output, reducing the bottleneck that can occur on the dewaxing unit of a lubricant line.

The sample conditioning system (SCS) optimizes the instrument’s performance and protects the analyzer from process disruptions which reduces downtime.
