Wax Appearnace Temperature

Wax Appearnace Temperature

Also known as cloud point, wax appearance temperature is the temperature at which a crude oil sample first precipitates solid wax as it is being cooled under prescribed test conditions.

Phase Technology’s new WAT-70Xi analyzer is the world’s first and only totally automatic process to measure WAT and WDT of crudes and marine fuel, capable of performing reliable testing of VLSFO and residual black oils. Based upon ASTM D5773, our proprietary optical light scattering technique detects phase changes with extreme sensitivity and accuracy.
