Seta Rust Prevention Test Bath

Part Number 11200-7

The bath allows determination of the ability of steam turbine oils to prevent rusting of ferrous components and to test the corrosive properties of cargoes in petroleum product pipelines.

The 31 litre capacity oil bath has a temperature range of ambient +5 C to 120 C, and is controlled by a remote digital thermostir unit calibrated at 60 C 0.1 C. The top panel of the bath accepts up to seven test beakers. Each beaker is stirred at 1000 50 rpm by a quick release paddle stirrer.


A beaker containing a mixture of sample and water (distilled or synthetic sea water, depending on the test) is stirred while being heated to the test temperature. A metal test specimen, mounted in a holder (acrylic for normal oils, PTFE for synthetic fluids) and supported by a beaker cover, is immersed in the mixture. After a period of time (specified in the test method) the test specimen is removed and inspected for signs of rusting.

Supplied with;
7 x standard stirrers
Berzelius beakers
7 x PMMA covers, PMMA holders & specimens
Mains lead and instruction manual
