SetaVap4 Automatic Vapour Pressure Analyser

Part Number 80600-0

The SetaVap4 is a fully automated vapour pressure analyser which provides fast, reliable and precise analysis of a wide range of volatile liquids, including gasoline, solvents and light crude oil.

The measurement system uses a piston based design in compliance with triple and single expansion test methods and regulations, reporting DVPE, RVP, EPA and CARB calculations. For precise results, the minimum dead volume design eliminates sample carryover and a fully automated test sequence removes possible operator bias.

A colour touch screen and clear user interface guides the operator through the menu system and simple operator sequence. Results are stored internally and can be viewed on the screen or saved directly to a USB memory stick for further data management and analysis.


Innovative design:
The measurement chamber and valves are temperature controlled using electronic peltier cells for heating and cooling. An integrated shaker allows testing of crude oil.

Calibration and verification:
Calibration of the SetaVap4 can be performed in the field, eliminating the costs and time associated with sending the instrument to a service centre.

Service and maintenance:
The rugged design ensures minimal operational maintenance is needed.
