Anton Paar takes the SVM Smart Viscometer series one step further. The SVM 3001 Cold Properties provides more parameters than ever before, including freeze point, cloud point, kinematic viscosity and density, making it the most flexible and economic viscometer on the market. SVM 3001 Cold Properties is compliant with ASTM D1655, D2880, D7566, DEF STAN 91-091, AFQRJOS, D396, D975, EN ISO 16896, and many other relevant standards.
Measurements with the SVM x001 series already provided key parameters such as kinematic viscosity, density, API grades, and viscosity index. In addition to all the parameters, the cloud point and freeze point of samples such as jet fuel or diesel can now be measured as well – and all from a single syringe. The integrated measuring cell not only covers the full measurement range, but also measures all samples without the need of changing capillaries. This unique combination of features makes SVM 3001 Cold Properties not only perfectly suitable for quality control purposes on a wide range of petroleum samples, but also serves as an outstanding platform for R&D applications. Fast temperature scans provide information on the behavior of samples across a wide temperature range. SVM 3001 Cold Properties also allows for temperature measurement at 12 cSt for safe operation.
Not only does SVM 3001 Cold Properties measure more parameters than any other viscometer on the market, it does so with the highest efficiency. The compact measuring cell requires only 1.5 mL of sample or cleaning solvent, saving purchase and disposal costs for solvents. Thanks to its integrated Peltier technology, SVM 3001 Cold Properties does not require a liquid bath to maintain and regulate temperature. Temperatures as low as -20 °C are reached without external counter-cooling, which makes the instrument ideal for performing jet fuel certification. In addition, the low energy consumption of SVM 3001 Cold Properties (max. 250 W) leads to low energy costs and high levels of economic efficiency and sustainability.
Immediately ready to use
SVM 3001 Cold Properties is ready for measurements right out of the box. There is no need for lengthy installation or adjustment. Simply unbox the instrument, plug it in, switch it on and push the button to start the measurement. With the modern, intuitive software and the customizable, state-of-the-art user interface you can be sure to see all parameters you need at one glance, allowing you to get the most from your SVM 3001 Cold Properties. The embedded PC provides a multitude of calculations, saving time and making an external computer unnecessary. The internal software of SVM 3001 Cold Properties even includes bias-corrected D445 results (using bias statements developed by ASTM) for samples such as jet fuel, diesel or biodiesel blends.
