Alcor (PAC)
MCRT-160    Micro Carbon Residue Tester
Alcor?s MCRT-160 provides safe, simple measurement of a petroleum product?s tendency to thermally degrade and form coke under high temperature pyrolyzing conditions. Its powerful digital control over all ASTM D 4530 test steps delivers results equivalent to Conradson Carbon (ASTM D 189) with significantly less inconvenience or fuss. A typical D 189 carbon residue analysis can easily take 90 minutes or more of a skilled operator?s time. The MCRT-160, on the other hand, frees skilled lab personnel for more important tasks. The operator only has to weigh the initial and final samples and start the test. The MCRT-160 automatically executes the factory programmed ASTM D 4530 test program. Plus, for added convenience and versatility, it can even be programmed to automate your own specialized time-temperature test profiles.
