Sofraser's Thermoset Mivi for heavy fuel oil processes procures unprecedented results, and users in numerous refineries give enthusiastic feedback.
According to Sofraser, the Thermoset Mivi is easily installed close to the process flow and the absence of clogging provides a permanent measure.
Production efficiency is thus improved, thanks to the careful treatment of viscous products and a simplified viscosity measure at reference temperature.
The integrated measuring chamber and the absence of a bath or oven allow less downtime, which is frequently linked to cleaning or maintenance operations.
With the Sofraser's Thermoset Mivi, the fluid is drawn from the process, taken to the required temperature, the viscosity is measured in correlation with ASTM D445, and the fluid is re-injected into the main line.
When adjusting two reference temperatures at 100C and 40C, the Thermoset Mivi is able to calculate the viscosity index according to ASTM 2,270-04.
It is designed for viscosity control of petroleum products and lubricants.
In addition, the Atex-approved design, density measurement option and specific customised design make Sofraser's Mivi the reference solution for viscosity control.
