Product Description
Using a suitable Comparator instrument, like the Lovibond / Tintometer AF509C color comparator, the sample is visually matched against calibrated, colour stable glass standards in test discs.
- This instrument Conforms to ASTM D1524 specifications
- Yields results equivalent to ASTM D1500

The Comparator 2000 is a short path-length instrument (up to 40 mm) for visually matching samples with relatively dark colours. Nessleriser systems (request pricing) are longer path length instruments for matching a column of sample in a glass cylinder of appropriate path length. They are designed for measuring unsaturated samples that are below the sensitivity of the Comparator 2000. A selection of Lovibond colour grading discs for use with the Comparator System 2000 is available (see PDF link below for brochure and request pricing)

The AF 509/C is a special kit for visual colour grading of type F76 marine diesel fuels according to a limited range of the ASTM Colour Scale. It is designed to ensure that the correct fuel is used in motor vessels running with type F76 diesel, thereby avoiding errors in fuel use that can result in expensive corrective maintenance. The test is based on a direct colour match between the sample and a test disc containing ASTM Color standards, enabling the operator to accept or reject the diesel fuel in a matter of minutes.

The AF 509/C includes a test disc containing a limited range of ASTM Color standards (1 - 5 units as opposed to the full range of 0.5 - 8 units), which is sufficient for this purpose since type F76 fuel has a target colour of 3.5 ASTM Color. The sample (in a 33 mm glass cell) is compared with the colour standards in a Lovibond Comparator 2000+ until a colour match is obtained.

The Lovibond AF 509/C is supplied with the following equipment in a plastic carrying case:
Comparator 2000+
ASTM Colour Disc 4/81 - Test disc containing 7 coloured glass standards precalibrated to 1, 2, 3, 3.5, 4, 4.5, 5 ASTM Colour Units
2 x W680/OG/33 cells
