MINIVAP is a highly versatile portable vapor pressure tester that features best-in-class precision and a pressure range of 0-2000 kPa. It is the first analyzer that demonstrates excellence in engineering by earning certificates for robustness and durability. Based on Grabner´s cutting-edge Cockpit™ technology, the instrument offers unmatched networking capabilities and enables worldwide access to analyzers.

ASTM D6378

Vapor Pressure of Gasoline and Petrochemicals (VPx)
Grabner´s "Triple Expansion Method" with determination of the dissolved air in the sample. No cooling and air Saturation required!

ASTM D5191

DVPE Dry Vapor Pressure Equivalent (w/ EPA and CARB correlation formulas)
Standard "Mini-Method" measured against vacuum and a correlation formula for the calculation of the DVP. Requires sample preparation, including cooling of the sample to 0°C (32°F) and triple air saturation prior to the measurement.

ASTM D6377

Vapor Pressure of Crude Oil (VPCRx)
"Single-Expansion Method" for vapor pressure of Crude Oil developed by GRABNER INSTRUMENTS. Better precision than classical ASTM D323 RVP method, ASTM correlation formula to D323 available. Does not require sample preparation: Saves time, increases precision and eliminates operator bias.

ASTM D6897

Vapor Pressure of LPG up to 2000 kPa
Easy, quick, fully automatic and accurate measurement of liquefied petroleum gas. Replaces the manual bomb method ASTM D1267. ASTM D6897 eliminates manual operation and cleaning and minimizes sample waste. Yields results in excellent correlation with ASTM D1267, but with a highly improved precision.

ASTM D5188

V/L-Ratio (TV/L)
Determines V/L ratio of non-viscous liquids including hydrocarbons like gasoline, solvents and other highly volatile compounds. Instrument performs fully automatically, providing results in minutes. No additional equipment is required.
