Description

The Saybolt Chromometer is used for quality control and product identification purposes on refined products having an ASTM Colour of 0.5 or less. Products in this range include undyed motor and aviation gasolines, jet propulsion fuels, naphthas, kerosene and petroleum waxes. Colour is an important quality characteristic for many products, and can also be used to detect product contamination. The Saybolt Chromometer measures colour by comparing a column of sample against standard colour discs.

SC CLASSIC Normalab Saybolt Chromometer includes:

  • daylight source built-in the base arranged to project a diffused light up through the tubes
  • 3-position turret assembly (1/2, 1 and 2) with certified Saybolt filters reducing the time required to make a determination and eliminating the handling of the standard filters and the possibility of loss and damage
  • As alternative for waxes the Saybolt Wax Chromometer SC CLASSIC WAX measures colour of non-fluid waxes (up to 100°C) by heating the samples during the test.
