In December 2013, ASTM welcomed a new form of viscosity testing into the Diesel Fuel Specifications- D7042. This viscosity method for testing diesel fuel according to the ASTM specifications D975 can only be performed using a Stabinger Viscometer. As a result of this new specification, Anton Paar’s SVM 3000 Stabinger Viscometer is the only approved instrument to perform the newly accepted D7042 testing method.
Positive benefits of D7042 include:
- No glassware
- No water bath
- 3.5 mL sample size
The D7042 viscosity testing method revolutionizes the way Diesel Fuels are tested: Peltier elements heat and cool the small sample while the SVM 3000 performs frictionless viscosity measurements considered statically equivalent to D445.
