Grabner Instruments Introduces Trend-Setting New Instrument for Vapor Pressure Testing

AMETEK Petrolab Company, a worldwide leader in automatic petroleum testers, announces the launch of a new, highly versatile and portable vapor pressure tester designed by Grabner Instruments®-- the MINIVAP VP Vision. The new analyzer features significant improvements in terms of measurement range that allows one instrument to measure gasoline, jet fuel, crude oil, LPG and solvents (without needing to attach a pressure regulator).

The analyzer is certified to work in cold as well as hot and damp climates and has a demonstrated ability to withstand vibrations and heavy shocks coming from any direction. It is the ideal tester for mobile laboratories, military applications and harsh, demanding environments.

The MINIVAP VP Vision is the first vapor pressure tester that demonstrates excellence in engineering and quality and offers an extended pressure range of 0 to 2000 kPa without compromising precision. Long-term testing has demonstrated an unmatched repeatability of less than 0.2 kPa. Grabner’s newly developed 2D-Correction™ (273 points) and exact piston positioning guarantee that accurate and precise results are received over the full measuring range. In addition, the MINIVAP VP Vision features Grabner´s Sampling Pro™ valve design, which during ruggedness tests proved to be the best-in-class, piston-based design for minimizing cross contamination between various sample types.

The MINIVAP VP Vision uniquely combines ease of use with flexibility. A modern, app-like user interface makes it easy to select, start and follow measurements directly on an industry-proven 10” touch screen. In addition, Grabner’s Cockpit™ PC software offers lab managers the utmost in flexibility. The software allows users to consolidate measurement results and statistics from multiple locations at one central lab and to store measurement data at any chosen location via direct Ethernet and LIMS-connection. The software can be accessed through a secure VPN tunnel, allowing true mobile access to instruments from any place at any time.
