Versatility and convenience combined!
Phase Technology’s new DFA-70Xi analyzer is the world’s first and only instrument that performs four important diesel fuel tests in one single unit—cloud point, pour point, viscosity and density. And, it does it all in less than 25 minutes!
The DFA-70Xi features a new, side loaded automatic sample injection port. There’s no longer a need to manually pipette. The analyzer always draws the precise amount of sample as required by the ASTM method.
The DFA is completely self-cleaning, without the need of solvents. Save time and hassle of cleaning, and avoid any risk of damage to the sample cup.
Diesel and biodiesel fuel’s cold-weather operability and fuel handling characteristics are measured by testing cloud point and pour point. Viscosity is an important parameter to ensure there is proper lubrication, with no damage in the engine’s fuel pump. Viscosity also influences the spray pattern when the fuel is injected into the cylinder. Density affects the heating value (or energy content) of the fuel.
Phase Technology 70Xi series analyzers give you complete flexibility – choose the test options you need for a customized solution. Available DFA-70Xi configurations include:
