Microbalance weighs up diesel particulates

A new microbalance is specially modified for filter weighing. The Sartorius SE2-F balance allows users to measure particle emissions in diesel fuel in accordance with 40 CFR 86.1312-2007. The balance features an optimised low profile stainless-steel draft shield, which minimises the effects of static electricity during filter weighing. It comes standard-equipped to weigh filters of up to 50mm diameter, with optional 75 and 90mm pan sizes also available. The SE2-F offers a full resolution from 0.1ug to 2.1g, meaning no further adaptations are required to allow the balance to be used for this highly specialised application. Emissions testing is important not only in the automobile industry but also in the petrochemical and oil industries, and the new filter-weighing balance is just as well suited to these applications. Moreover it can also be used in research and testing institutions in the field of environmental technology, or indeed anywhere that the emissions produced by combustion processes are closely scrutinised.
