Flashpoint testing 
Flashpoint testing using a Pensky-Marten closed cup flashpoint tester per ASTM D93.  We provide flashpoint data on a wide variety of petroleum, synthetic, and bio-derived fuels and light lubricants. 
 
Note:  This is NOT the TAG Closed Cup test per ASTM D-56 referenced for many non-petroleum products.
 
Product details

The Petrotest® PMA-4 provides a temperature range from 40 to 360°C on Diesel Oil, Fuel, Lube Oil, Power Plant, Jet Fuel, Turbine Fuel, Engine Oil , Turbine Oil and Solvents.
 
Testing requires a minimum of 100ml per test run.  To run industry standard triplicate requires 350ml.
 
In most cases we can provide a verbal answer in 1 to 2 days after sample receipt.  We then provide a signed hardcopy report of the analysis.
 
Product price

Baere will provide flashpoint tests on a per test basis of $125 each up to three replicates. 
 
If a test plan or interpretation of results is requested, a flat fee contract can be prepared or a straight per hour rate of $260/hour with a do not exceed value is available.

Surface Tension
Surface tension testing using a duNouy platinum ring.  Testing is run per ASTM D1331. We will provide interfacial tension numbers on a variety of fluids.
 
Product details

The Fisher Scientific Tensiomat provides room temperature testing of the interfacial tension of liquids. 
 
Testing requires 200ml of fluid. To perform density correction, requester needs to provide a density, or have a density test performed.
 
The submitter is responsible for appropriate sampling and sample handling to avoid contamination which can invalidate results.
 
In most cases we can provide a verbal answer in 1 to 2 days after sample receipt.  We then provide a signed hardcopy report of the analysis.
 
Product price

Baere will provide surface tension tests on a per test basis of $140 each. 
 
If a test plan or interpretation of results is requested, a flat fee contract can be prepared or a straight per hour rate of $260/hour with a do not exceed value is available.

 

 

Room Temperature Density on Liquids and Solids

 

Room temperature density measurements using mass displacement.  This is similar to ASTM D792.  The method uses the Archimedes principle of displacement in water to determine a materials density.

For solids the density needs to be greater than 1.000 g/cc (they do not float).

 

Product details

The Mass Displacement Density determination method (jolie balance) provides room temperature testing of the density of liquids and solids by displacement relative to water. 
 
Testing requires 200ml of fluid or 1 gram of solid.  
 
In most cases we can provide a verbal answer in 1 to 2 days after sample receipt.  We then provide a signed hardcopy report of the analysis.
 
Product price

Baere will provide room density tests relative to water on a per test basis.  Liquid density determination is $50 per sample and solid density determination is $55 per sample.   
 
If a test plan or interpretation of results is requested, a flat fee contract can be prepared or a straight per hour rate of $260/hour with a do not exceed value is available.
