HAMCO54B Semiautomatic Drop Point Apparatus By Ring & Ball Method As Per ASTM D 566

Test Method:

Dropping point determinations are used for identification and quality control purposes, and can be an indication of the highest temperature of utility for some applications. The sample is heated at a prescribed rate in a precision machined cup whose sides slope toward an opening at its center. The temperature at which a liquid drop first falls from the cup is the dropping point of the sample.

  • Conforms to ASTM D566, D4950; NF T 60-102 and related specifications
  • Performs dropping point determinations on lubricating greases at temperatures of up to 550°F (288°C). Consists of dropping point cup, test cell with accessories and oil bath with stirrer and heater. Test cell is immersed in a 400mL Pyrex™ bath for heating at the prescribed rate. A 750W variable stepless control heater and 1/40hp stirrer permit accurate, uniform control of bath temperature rate of rise. Heater assembly includes refractory top plate and reference dial.

    Conforms to the specifications of: ASTM D566, D4950; IP 132; ISO 2176; DIN 51801; FTM 791-1421; NF T 60-102

    Accessories Will Be Supplid With Equipment

    • TEMP. RISE : SETABLE FROM RANGE 0.1DEG C TO 9.9 DEG C.
    • METHOD OF DETECTING DROP POINT : MANUAL.
    • MICROPROCESSOR BASED TEMPERATURE CONTROL UNIT WITH ALL NECESSARY INTERLOCK.
    • YOU CAN SET 10 DEG PRIOR TO EXPECTED DROP POINT. ONCE IT WILL REACH THERE IT WILL GIVE YOU AUDIO VISUAL ALARM AND WILL MAINTAIN THAT TEMPERATURE UNTIL YOU PRESS A RESET BUTTON.( UPTO THIS TIME YOU DON’T HAVE TO ATTEND THE EQUIPMENT.)
    • AFTER REACHING PRESET TEMPERATURE, YOU HAVE TO SET RAMP RATE OF TEMPERATURE RISE RANGE FROM 0.1 DEG C TO 9.9 DEG C PER MINUTE. AFTER SETTING THE RAMP RATE, YOU HAVE TO PRESS THE START BUTTON.
    • NOW, WHEN YOU DETECT DROP POINT, PRESS HOLD BUTTON THE TEMPERATURE DISPLAY WILL HOLD UNTIL YOU PRESS RESET BUTTON. THE HOLD DISPLAY OF TEMPERATURE INDICATE YOUR DROP POINT.
    • HEATING LOAD: 800 WATT.
    • POWER SUPPLY: 230V AC, 50 HZ, 10 AMP.
    • STIRRER: MOTORISED.
    • ILLUMINATION: BRIGHT LED TYPE.
    • SAFETY FEATURES:
      • OVER TEMPERATURE PROTECTION.
      • OVER LOAD PROTECTION.
      • SHORT CIRCUIT PROTECTION.
      • INPUT POWER FLUCTUATION PROTECTION.
    • IT WILL FOLLOW EXACT ASTM PROCEDURE WITHOUT MUCH MORE MANUAL INTERVENTION.
    • OPERATOR WILL REMAIN FREE UNTIL IT REACHES PRESET TEMPERATURE.
    • THE FACILITY OF RAMP RATE ALLOW THE OPERATOR TO CARRY THE TEST AT THE SPEED IT DESIRE.
    • ALL NECESSARY INTERLOCK WILL DETECT THE PROBLEN AUTOMATICALLY.
    • USER FRIENDLY.
    • THE HOLD DISPLAY OF SOFTENING POINT FACILITY WILL ALLOW THE OPERATOR TO NOTE DOWN THE READING WITH SOME TIME.
    • PRINTER FACILITY (OPTIONAL WITH EXTRA PRICE). WILL REDUCE THE ERROR OF MANUAL MISTAKE.
