Oxidation Stability

Seta RoBot Bath

Part Number 15200-5

The Seta RoBot Bath is a floor standing unit used for the evaluation of oxidation stability of new and in-service engine, turbine and insulating oils in the presence of water and a copper catalyst.

Up to two oxidation test vessels (Seta 15210-5) are supported at an angle of 30° in an oil bath, and rotated at 100 rev/min by an electric motor and bevel gear drive.

The 72 litre oil bath is digitally temperature controlled. A hinged hood, fitted with a safety interlock that switches off the motor when opened to protect the operator from the rotating test vessels. The bath is equipped with low fluid level and over-temperature protection devices. Extraction fans remove silicone oil vapours and fumes from the bath.

The pressure within a test vessel can be automatically measured and displayed in real time using a Seta AutoRõBOT Pressure Monitoring System (15205-2).
