MICRO-SEPAROMETER MARK V DELUXE OPERATION MANUAL
Test performed outside of these temperature limits may not meet ASTM repeatability/reproducibility criteria.
Remove the instrument from the protective foam case. Open the case and remove the Six-Pack box from the lid.
Insert your finger into the hole in the right panel and raise the panel until completely vertical and locked in place. If
power is available, check to be certain the source voltage matches the power cord label and connect the power cord.
Have ready a supply of syringes, ALUMICEL COALESCERS, vials, plugs, pipette tips, drip pan, and a container
for clean water. All but the water container are provided with the instrument and Six-Pack.
The syringe drive speeds are pre-set at the factory and are automatically checked during each test. The syringe
drive time is measured and compared to an internal clock. As soon as the syringe reaches the bottom limit the "SYR. "
alert indicator will illuminate if the syringe speed is out of limits. The syringe alert lamp will remain on until the end of the
test to alert the operator the data may be suspect. If the syringe speed is further out of limits the audible alarm will sound
3 times and any test data should be discarded.
If the instrument is to be operated in a location where an AC outlet is not available, the instrument should be
charged for approximately 16 hours before testing. The unit will function properly for approximately 25 tests before
battery recharging is necessary.
PREPARATION OF SAMPLE
Obtain and handle the samples with the utmost care and cleanliness as required in the ASTM Procedure D-3948.
Before pouring the test sample from container, wipe the container outlet thoroughly with a clean, lintless wipe. Then pour
the test sample into a clean beaker or directly into the syringe.
If the sample for test is not within the test temperature limits let the container stand or preferably put sample in a
clean beaker and let it come to operating temperature.
