The model AFP-102 automatically executes the Cold Filter Plugging Point (CFPP) test method prescribed in IP309, ASTM D6371 and JIS K2288. After developing its predecessor models, this third generation model has been developed by applying Tanaka’s latest technologies and the various know-hows. “Ease of operation” has been further improved on this model.
METHANOL FREE OPERATION
Use of Peltier cells for sample cooling/heating made this tester methanol free. No big chiller is needed; a small chiller with antifreeze suffices the cooling requirements.
DUAL COOLING MODES
Mode of cooling can be selected from linear cooling and conventional step-wise cooling.
SIMPLE AND EASY OPERATION
All the operation is made through a simple membrane keypad, which is standard on more than half of Tanaka’s automatic petroleum testers. The operation is simple and intuitive.
RELIABLE MENISCUS DETECTION
Upper and lower meniscus detectors are mounted on a holder that slides back and forth to engage with the pipette. This new design allows not only easy operation but also reliable detection under the conditions when the pipette is frosted.
