ASTM Color Analyzer

Reliable VIS-NIR Dual-Beam Photometer

Cost-Effective Analytical System for Measuring ASTM Color (ASTM D1500, ASTM D1524)

Our ASTM Color Analyzer System is a complete, “ready-to-go” analytical system:

  • Analyzer – ClearView® db filter photometer technology
  • Fiber optic cables
  • Sample interface – insertion probe or flow cell
  • Control software and ASTM application calibration
  • Accurate, Real-time Reliable Results

The ASTM Analyzer System utilizes our multi-wavelength ClearView db filter photometer analyzer platform. It may be configured for either one (1) or two (2) independent sample monitoring points. The ClearView db analyzer is configured with application appropriate wavelengths to measure the ASTM color of the sample. The analyzer employs a dual-beam design – meaning; the system has a continual internal optical reference check that allows it to self-compensate for signal variation due to non-sample conditions. This ultimately provides the system with long term stability. The final product is a total ASTM Color System that measures the color variation without interference from other factors.

The visual ASTM color test is often used for field examination control purposes because it is an easy, rapid determination of product quality or contamination before doing a full evaluation. ASTM color (references ASTM D1500, ASTM D6045) is primarily used in characterizing high chroma or more colorful petroleum products. These fuels include lubricating oils, heating oils, diesel fuels, and petroleum waxes. The ASTM- scale shows a range of 0 ASTM (no color) up to 8 ASTM (dark / nearly black color). Products with low color less than 0.5 ASTM are often measured by using the Saybolt color (ASTM D-156). Both of these ASTM methods are off-line manual laboratory evaluations.

Complete ASTM Color Analyzer System

Unique dual beam optics – for long term, stable operation. Up to two (2) independent measurement points – for added analytical flexibility at reduced cost per point.  High efficiency yet rugged fiber optics – analyzer electronics can be located away from a hazardous sample point. In-door touch screen or Ethernet (Modbus TCP) – easy local or remote analyzer operation and control. Analytical calculations are all encoded in the software – answers and alarms are clearly reported.
