Density Meter for the Petroleum Industry – DMA 4200 M

At last there is a density meter which can measure all of your petroleum samples, including crude oil, intermediate products, asphalt, liquefied petroleum gas and high-viscosity liquids: the new DMA 4200 M. This new instrument extends the renowned DMA M range of density meters from Anton Paar and builds on almost 50 years of experience in density measurement



Time & Cost Savings

Only 2mL of sample needed and small amount of solvent required to clean the DMA 4200 sample cell. All calculations are done for you, there is no need to look up API tables and work out the temperature compensation. This enhances lab productivity while minimizing human error and environmental influences.

Multiple tasks at multiple locations

Application areas include offshore laboratories, refineries and research and development establishments. DMA 4200 M is a must-have tool for laboratories at petroleum refineries. It improves, accelerates and simplifies density measurements on incoming crude oil, on intermediate samples to give quick feedback to the refining process and for QC of samples like asphalt, bitumen and LPG.

Extended measurement limits

DMA 4200 M extends the measurement limits for digital density measurement in petroleum applications. The measurement temperature can

be set at the touch of a button in a wide range from -10 °C up to 200 °C. Measurement at elevated temperatures in combination with accessories even allows you to measure samples which are solid at room temperature. The density values are automatically calculated for the required reporting temperature. Samples can also be measured under pressures of up to 500 bar.

Strong & Robust

The heart of DMA 4200 M is an innovatively designed and precisely engineered U-tube made of Hastelloy. Hastelloy is a high-performance material. It has a much higher chemical resistance to hydrochloric acid and sour gas than stainless steel. You can rely on this robust instrument for a long life with no risk of breakages or corrosion.
