Model Number: FT
The FT series is designed to determine accurately the precipitation and crystallisation conditions of asphaltenes and waxes in very dark, undiluted crudes and oil products at high pressure and high temperature. It is composed of a HP – HT stirred sample vessel combined to a special optical probe which measures the transmittance of a low intensity laser light in the sample. When asphaltene precipitation or wax crystallization occurs, the transmittance of the signal passing through the sample decreases sharply and it allows for determining the asphaltene onset or the WAT.
