Cloud Point Detector

Cloud Point DetectorProduct Code: FG-K16954-KW

The Cloud Point Detector automatically identifies the temperature at which wax crystals begin to form in a distillate fuel (the Cloud Point). Developed for the UK MoD*, this is important for military vessels and those operating in arctic waters and for testing winter grade distillate deliveries in land based power gen.  Wax crystal formation causes the oil to become cloudy in appearance with a greatly increased tendency to block filters and fuel systems. This Cloud Point Detector / Analyzer operates by cooling an oil sample and monitoring the intensity of light transmission. It can handle multiple wax formation point and will select the most appropriate. The unit allows cloud point tests to be carried out before accepting the fuel and a normal test takes less than 10 minutes.
