DMA 35 Ex Petrol

The DMA 35 portable density meter measures the density, SG and °API of samples on-site within seconds. The intrinsically safe instrument (ATEX-marking II 2 G Ex ib IIC T4) has a special housing, resistant to petroleum samples. It is therefore perfectly suitable for measuring petroleum samples in hazardous areas. The integrated RFID interface enables quick sample identification (e.g. tank number) before measurement. Measured results can be stored and printed or exported to a PC wirelessly via IrDA later on. The instrument fully complies with the ASTM D7777 standard.

Benefits of DMA 35 Ex Petrol at Crude oil production

The DMA 35 Ex Petrol portable density meter measures the API gravity, API SG or API density (calculated from true density) of crudes (product group A) directly at the sampling location. It automatically displays the measured value, already compensated to your reference temperature of choice. Depending on the type of transportation from the exploration site to the refinery, crude oil may run through several stages of loading and unloading as well as storage in between. In any case, a quick density check will help users identify the quality of the delivered crude as well as potential stratification of components of different densities within tanks during storage.
