Automatic sampling cleaning

Automatic sampling & cleaning

  • Set-and-forget convenience

    • set 1 to 48 test runs, then walk away and let the analyzer do the rest!

  • Automatic sample injection

    • no need to individually pipette samples or change pipette tips.

    • Always uses the exact amount of sample required by the ASTM method.

  • Self-cleaning

    • Saves time and ensures perfect cleaning every time.

    • No more need for cotton swabs or risk of damage to sample cup.

70xi favorites feature

70Xi “Favorites” feature

  • 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


Built in tools to validate test results

Built-in tools to validate test results

  • Overlay and compare multiple phase plots

  • Control and trend charts

  • Automatic QC run

  • Option to retest sample

  • Optional alert or lockdown if out of acceptable limits

Astm methods comparison

ASTM Methods Comparison


Pour point astm method comparison

POUR POINT ASTM Method Comparison


Pour point astm method comparison1

POUR POINT ASTM Method Comparison

  • ISL/PAC CPP5Gs

    • The CPP5GSisextremelyslowand has poor precision – uses a mechanical tilt method which takes 80 – 140 minutes to complete a pour point test

    • Compare to Phase Technology pour point test takes 8 – 20 minutes

  • ISL/PAC MPP5Gs

    • The ISL MPP5Gs uses ASTM D7346 to determine the “no flow” point of petroleum products. ASTM stated that there is no correlation between no flow and pour point.

    • ASTM D7346 no flow point cannot be used to certify lube oil products for release because it is not a pour point method. The only accepted standards for product release are pour point methods, such as ASTM D5949 (as used by Phase Technology 70Xi analyzers).


Pour point astm method comparison2

POUR POINT ASTM Method Comparison

  • Tanaka MPC-102

    • Tanaka is the slowest automatic method

      • reports of 90 – 120 minutes for low temperature lubes

      • Phase Technology 70Xi can perform at least eight test runs in the time that it takes Tanaka to perform one single test!

    • The MPC-102 requires 4 mL of sample (contrast to Phase Technology use of 0.15 mL). Larger sample volume introduces non-uniform temperature.

    • Even with external liquid cooler, MPC-102 is not able to reach the low temperature level that Phase Technology does.

      • Tanaka is only capable of going down to -30°C with internal cooler

      • Phase Technology reaches -88°C with internal cooler


Freeze point astm method comparison

FREEZE POINT ASTM Method Comparison


Freeze point astm method comparison1

FREEZE POINT ASTM Method Comparison

  • ISL/PAC takes 2 to 3 times longer to run a freeze point test compared to Phase Technology

  • ISL/PAC FZP52Gs freeze point analyzer has seriousfalsewarmingissues

    • Numerous studies have shown high incidence of false warming – as high as 60% in a BP study

    • Shell Bulletin GLN 33a (September 14, 2006) warned that ISL “can occasionally falsely show a failure if samples contain small amounts of high boiling point material”


The phase technology advantage

The Phase Technology ADVANTAGE:

  • Phase Technology’s 70Xi analyzer is 4 to 10 times faster than the competition!

  • Phase Technology’s 70Xi analyzer has the world’s best precision

  • The 70Xi requires much less sample: 4 to 14 ml less needed per test!


The phase technology advantage1

The Phase Technology ADVANTAGE:

  • Phase Technology has the oldest, most established, continuous-in-production automatic cold flow ASTM Methods – 17 years of proven, in-the-field use!

  • The PSA-70Xi tests pour, cloud and freeze point in one single unit.You’d have to buy two or three separate analyzers from our competitor!
