Product Description:

• Conforms to ASTM D1319 Test Method

Lawler FIA-1319
is a series of apparatus used for the determination of saturated, non-aromatic olefins, and aromatics in petroleum fractions that distill below 315°C (600°F) by Fluorescent Indicator Adsorption (FIA Method). This apparatus conforms to ASTM D1319 and other similar test methods. It is available in 6, 4, and 2 position versions.

Lawler supplies a portable handheld vibrator, purchased separately. It is unlike competitive units that offer fixed mounted vibrator. Benefit is the ability to focus the vibration to specific areas of the column to more tightly pack the silica gel

AVAILABLE MODELS:

  • 6 easy to read pressure gauges
  • Pressure manifold with precision needle valve for each position
  • Zone measuring device

Model FIA-1319-4 is identical to Model FIA-1319-4 but has 4 test positions.

Model FIA-1319-2 is identical to Model FIA-1319-4 but has 2 test positions.

The test method permits the use of two types of adsorption columns and Lawler offers both. Precision bore columns, our part number FIA-11, can be reused after cleaning. Requires purchase of one cleaning capillary, our FIA-14. Adsorption columns with standard bore, our FIA-16, offer the convenience of being disposable after each use. Order additional replacement columns, our FIA-17. Additional spare parts for both the precision bore and standard columns, while not required, are available and listed in below.

In addition to the FIA-1319 apparatus, also needed are a portable vibrator, standard silica gel, dyed silica gel, and appropriate number of spare precision bore or standard columns (see below). Columns are very long, fragile, and costly to ship, so consider ordering larger quantities of spares to amortize the shipping costs.
