Smoke Point

TV 2000 Series

B/R 1100

Smoke Point

The Smoke Point method, in accordance with ASTM D1322, IP57, and ISO3014, is one of the oldest test methods in the petroleum industry.


This test method provides an indication of the relative smoke producing properties of kerosenes and aviation turbine fuels in a diffusion flame. The smoke point is related to the hydrocarbon composition of such fuels. Generally, the more aromatic the fuel, the smokier the flame. A high smoke point indicates a fuel of low smoke producing tendency.


Performing the smoke point test manually requires highly skilled technicians with years of experience. Additionally, the manual test is time consuming.


The current visual rating method used for specification purposes suffers from the drawback of operator subjectivity. The visual measurement of an open flame is a challenging exercise and dangerous for lab personnel. The visual rating of the flame varies from one operator to another.

B/R 1100

The B/R 1100 is an easy to use ASTM D1160 (ISO 6616) Vacuum Distillation Apparatus for the distillation of petroleum products.  It is available in 3 forms. Automated, Semi-Automated and Manually Operated.  The automated D1160 features automated control from a PC along with standard ASTM glassware. Vacuum level, bath tem- perature, distillation rate, are all programmable through the PC and are controlled automatically. Thousands of programs can be stored. 


Automated System Features:

  • Automated operation
  • PC control with Windows® operating system 
  • Automatic generation of reports
  • Easily exported data
  • Automatic cleaning cycle

TV2000MKII

D445, D2162
This test method specifies a procedure for the determination of the kinematic viscosity of liquid petroleum products, both transparent and opaque, by measuring the time for a volume of liquid to flow under gravity through a calibrated glass capillary viscometer.


Main Characteristics
Bath can be operated from ambient +5°C up to +230°C (41..446°F). With the use of the built-in cooling coil and an external Tamson cooler, span lies 5K above the temperature of the cooling liquid. The TV2000, TV4000 and TV7000 have a bath volume of 20, 40 and 70 liters respectivily. The TV2000 offers two rows of 2 and 1 holes with lids.

These will accommodate glass capilary viscometers in viscometer holders. 


The TV4000DC has the same specific qualities as the TV4000, but with a uniqe stability of 0.0007°C at 40°C. A bath overflow outlet protects from expanding bath oil when the bath filling is too high. A bath drain is standard included. The bath is fitted with a double window of which the front pane is detachable for cleaning purposes.

The TV7000 is often used to calibrate long thermometers, to calibrate master viscometers or for oxidation stability tests. A bath overflow outlet protects from expanding bath oil when the bath filling is too high. A bath drain is standard included. The bath is fitted with a double window of which the front pane is detachable for cleaning purposes.
