DC Scientific now distributing AD Systems NEW! SP-10 Automated Smoke Point Tester


DC Scientific, an ISO 9001 registered manufacturer of precision glassware products and testing equipment for the petroleum laboratory, announced that they are the exclusive distributor in North America for AD Systems new line of products that include the NEW! SP10 Automated Smoke Point Analyzer for the analysis of Jet Fuel.

The SP10 Revolutionizes Smoke Point Testing. This unique automated instrument uses a patented system (License TOTAL RM) based on a video camera that measures the flame. The flame image is digitalized. The dedicated software determines the height of the flame when its shape corresponds to the one described in the test method. This specific flame is the one with the maximum height without smoke generation. The SP10 performs three determinations of the flame heights and reports the average value in strict accordance with the test method. The results are saved in an internal database and can be printed, transferred to a USB memory stick and/or sent to a LIMS. Every test is fully documented and traceable, which is imperative for aviation industry quality procedures.

The SP10 is an Automated Smoke Point instrument that strictly follows the test method while both eliminating the subjectivity inherent to the manual test and significantly improving repeatability and reproducibility. Additionally, the SP10 eliminates all safety risks linked to the visual observation of an open flame. The test can now be run unattended which drastically reduces labor costs.
