70Xi CLOUD, POUR AND FREEZE POINT LAB ANALYZER


Phase Technology’s 70Xi cold flow properties analyzer significantly increases lab productivity and improves profitability by providing quick, precise results. The 70Xi analyzer helps minimize giveaway and ensure that released product is on spec.

Phase Technology users can be confident that their test results accurately meet and comply with ASTM International standards for pour, cloud and freeze point: ASTM D5949, D5773 and D5972. The oldest, continuously-in-use cold flow methods in the industry!

The PSA-70Xi is the world’s only analyzer that performs pour, cloud and freeze point in one unit. Combining functions saves money and valuable bench space in the lab.

 

Features

  • Best overall precision of any automatic or manual method
  • Fastest speed of any cloud, pour or freeze point analyzer: test results in just 8-20 minutes
  • Easy-to-use and versatile: saves time in the lab, no special training needed

  • One-touch preset Favorites – Frequently-used test settings can be stored in the analyzer for quick access. Favorites can be created, organized, sorted or deleted as you desire. With the single push of a button, lab operators can efficiently perform tests in significantly less time
  • Full-color, touch-sensitive, 15” high resolution screen – Easier to read and view more information. Multitasking capability eliminates need to flip between multiple windows. Displays several views of information at the same time. Overlay and compare multiple phase plots in different colors
  • USB and Ethernet connectivity – Quickly export analyzer data to a portable USB flash drive. USB capability also makes remote diagnostics and troubleshooting easier. Easily connect other devices like printers, barcode scanners and keyboard. Ethernet port available for connecting to LIMS or internal computer network
  • Robust design and improved serviceability – New modular component design. Field-replaceable parts (including cooler). Easier, faster service without the need to re-calibrate
  • Powerful cooling system; minimum sample temperature to below -88°C [-126°F]
  • Capable of any user programmable resolution to 0.1°C
  • Unsurpassed detection of contamination in jet fuels
  • Programmable user access levels streamlines workflow and prevents accidental changes
  • Alert sounds when test is finished and ready for next run; audible keyboard “clicks”
  • Connect any HP (or PCL compatible) printer via USB
  • Import and store any user documents (.doc, .pdf, .ppt and .pps) for customized operating procedures (SOP) or training
  • Sample chamber located lower and more upfront for easier, faster loading and cleaning and less risk of spilled sample
  • Chamber lid LED indicator shows test status
  • New front panel power button and software-enabled shutdown
  • Configurable desiccant replacement count
  • Customizable reporting – test history, plot data and self-diagnostics can be displayed on-screen, printed, or transferred to computer for statistical analysis, presentations, email sharing, archival storage
  • Test uses small sample volume
  • Completely self-contained system: no need for external coolant. Quiet, energy efficient and environmentally friendly (no toxic coolant vapors)

Our Customers Say:

“Our company recently bought a Freeze Point Analyzer, Model FPA-70Xi. This instrument has been a blessing, cutting our reporting time in half. We were using the manual method, so it’s great that we no longer have to deal with dry ice and manual mixing.”
