Pour point

  
OELCHECK test instrument: ISL MPP 5Gs pour point and cloud point machine
Sample quantity: 1 mL
Unit: °C
Test result: Pour point
Analysis for: Diesel fuels, biodiesel, low temperature oils
Brief description:The pour point indicates the temperature at which the oil in the sample bottle - positioned horizontally - ceases to be fluid within 5 seconds.
Statement:

At low external temperatures, the oil can "set" and become unable to provide lubrication. The pour point indicates the temperature at which the oil is no longer fluid.

The pour point is influenced by the formation of paraffin crystals, which depend on the origin of the base oil and degree of deparaffinisation.

Underlying test standard: ASTM D7346
Comparable methods: DIN ISO 3016, ASTM D97
