Salinometer – Redesigned for increased safety

Share Article

Anton Paar is proud to announce the launch of an update for the SCO 1 salinometer to measure salt in crude oil.

SCO 1 salinometer

High level of safety. No unintended touching of electrodes possible.

This instrument has been thoroughly redesigned. The new design has the sample jar securely held in place, reducing the risk of spillage. Two keys have to be pressed to initiate a test, reducing the risk of the operator coming into contact with high voltages. The instrument automatically switches off if currents above 20mA occur. It is not possible for the operator to come into contact with the electrodes during testing.

The SCO 1 salinometer allows the user to determine the chloride (salt) concentration in crude oil. The measurement is based on the conductivity of a salt present in crude oil, when subjected to an alternating current.
Knowledge of the chloride concentration is important as it is a major cause of corrosion during the refining process. The SCO 1 is used to assess desalting requirements for incoming crude oil and provides information on the efficiency of the desalting process.
