HCP 852 - Cloud and Pour Point

Test Methods

ASTM D2500, ASTM D5853, ASTM D6892, ASTM D97, IP 15, IP 219, IP 444, ISO 3015, ISO 3016, JIS K2269



The HCP 852 Automatic Cloud & Pour Point Tester utilizes standardized methods for pour point and cloud point determinations. The HCP 852 Automated Pour Point and Cloud Point Analyzer removes human variability from the analysis. The HCP 852 is the only automatic analyzer that performs measurements exactly according to their respective ASTM test procedures, controlling each step with microprocessor precision. Sophisticated robotics control all sample movement, and to complete the process, a high resolution CCD video detection system simultaneously examines the entire sample for movement (pour point) and crystal formation (cloud point). For customized performance, HCP 852 accommodates up to four user-programmed test procedures, which can deviate from standard procedures while still maintaining overall test methodology. Sample cooling is also user defined and can be decreased in steps (those defined by ASTM D 97 or ASTM D 2500 or your own), at a constant rate, or using delta temperature.
