Setafoam Dual Twin Foam Test Baths are a pair of highly transparent water baths for detecting undesirable foaming characteristics in lubricating oils, which could cause inadequate lubrication, overflow and cavitation.

Calibration and verification equipment available


The instrument comprises a high temperature (normally 93.5°C) and a low temperature (normally 24°C) bath, each with the capacity to hold four 1000ml graduated glass cylinders.

Each bath assembly comprises an inner glass bath contained in a polycarbonate safety vessel, a top mounted thermostir unit and a side mounted module containing two calibrated flowmeters with control valves and protection shields. Integral back-lighting with an opaque reflector aids sample visibility and foam measurements. In addition, the low temperature bath has a cooling coil for use when the laboratory ambient temperature exceeds the required bath temperature, and two air normalising coils to cool the air emerging from the high temperature bath test cylinders prior to passing to external volume meters.

The thermostir units provide precision temperature control to within ±0.5°C across a temperature range of ambient to 100°C, and feature a low fluid level alarm. Easy to remove stoppers ensure air tight seals and central location of diffusers. All air connections are via quick release connectors, and the diffuser tubes can be used with either Mott diffusers or Norton Stones.

Supplied with: four flowmeters, four graduated 1000ml cylinders and stoppers, interconnection tubing and junctions, mains leads and instruction manual.

Note: Air supply (Seta Air Pump 14019-0) and diffusers required.
