Panel Coker (Panel coking apparatus): Coking Tendency of oils

The panel coking apparatus to determine the tendencies of finished oils from coke when in contact with surfaces at elevated temperatures. It is designed to perform Fed. Test Standard 791 method 3462.

  • The unit is supplied with PID temperature indicating controllers for regulating the temperature of the test panel oil in the sump and air. It is equipped with a variable drive motor, digital speed display and air flow regulator system.
  • The optional Cyclic timing system conducts  alternate splash/bake cycles to allow oil bake for a period of time on the hot panel without the addition of fresh lubricants. The optional sulphur dioxide gas system allows for the introduction of a corrosive acidic atmosphere thus increasing the severity of the evaluation.
  • Speed Ten turn variable speed control pot. Speed range from 100 to 1800 rpm.
