Turbiscan® is an internationally known product range of instruments capable of early-stage detection of a wide variety of destabilization processes such as coalescence, flocculation, creaming and sedimentation.
The Turbiscan® Oil Series, is a stability analyzer specially designed for heavy fuel and crude oils analysis in both the oil and petroleum industries. It has proven to be useful tool for studies involving asphaltenes, dispersant efficiency, emulsification and blend compatibility characterization.
Heavy Fuel Stability
The instrument is a part of recognized method, object of dedicated method ASTM D7061, specifically designed for heavy fuel analysis and determination of separability number of asphaltene containing heavy fuel oils.
- Quantitative monitoring of dispersion stability
- Shelf life and long-term stability analysis
- Migration velocity
Portable and Robust Tool
Specifically designed as a portable device with its compact design and light weight (<5 kg), the unit can be easily transported from the research and development lab to on-field analysis.
Quick Detection of Instabilities
All destabilization processes including aggregation, agglomeration, floculation, sedimentation and creaming can be detected, monitored and characterized in several minutes as a result of rapid scan frequency.
