Automatic Pour / Cloud / Freezing Point Tester mpc-6

Automatic Pour / Cloud / Freezing Point Tester mpc-6

Tanaka’s new Automatic Pour / Cloud / Freezing Point Tester mpc-6 is designed with “Simple, Reliable, and Robust” concepts. It requires a mere 4.5 mL sample and provides quick, automatic, and high-precision determination of 3 key cold property measurements.


Tanaka’s original mini-test methods require much less
sample volume (4.5 mL) and short testing time compared to
conventional manual methods


A very small width of 16 cm allows for the most efficient use of bench space.


Test pour point, cloud point, and freezing point with just one instrument. Pour and the cloud can be run simultaneously in a single run.


Equipped with CFC-free cooler achieving low noise, low vibration, and energy-saving. A sample temperature of -90℃ can be reached without an external chiller.

● Intuitive 7-inch Touch-Screen Operation: Simplicity ensures smooth operation.
● Extremely Simple: Set the sample cup, input the expected points, and then press START. The pre-heat and cooling sequences are run automatically. Pour and cloud point results can be obtained in a single run.
● Search Mode for Unknown Samples: The new SPE mode will test pour points with different pressures so parameter optimization can be easily done.
● Data Connectivity and Management: Ethernet can export data to LIMS or an optional printer. Up to 50 data can be stored securely with a password.

Pour / Cloud/ Freezing Point Tester MPC Series

TANAKA’s MPC series has been designed for the automatic determination of POUR POINT (PP), CLOUD POINT (CP), and FREEZING POINT (FZ) with small specimen size and shorter test cycle time while securing better test precision than the conventional manual methods.
PP is measured using the “AIR PRESSURE METHOD” (ASTMD6749), and CP is measured using the “SMALL TEST JAR METHOD” (ASTM D7683).

The epoch-making automatic PP test method yields a 1 ℃ test resolution, while the CP and FZ methods yield a 0.1 ℃ resolution.
