HFRR: Diesel Fuel Lubricity as per ASTM D6079
Automated HFRR: Diesel Fuel Lubricity (High Frequency Reciprocating Test Rig)
This model is a computer controlled “FULLY AUTOMATED” reciprocating friction and wear test system which provides a fast, repeatable assessment of the performance of fuels and lubricants. It is particularly suitable for wear testing of relatively poor lubricants & diesel fuels like for boundary friction measurements of engine oils, greases & other compounds. Developed by a group of Tribologists having a combined experience of over 60 years in the field of TribologyHFRR Applications:
- Evaluation of new Diesel, Gasoline & Lubricants additives
- Determination of optimum additive dosages for raw fuels
- Quality for outgoing products & incoming materials to ensure conformity with specs.
- Boundary friction coefficient measurements for automobile fuel economy modeling
The test method measures the lubricity, or ability of a fluid to affect friction between, and wear to surfaces in relative motion under load. The system is entirely controlled by PC via a custom electronic interface. The entire process from loading of the specimen, attaining the temperature, achieving the required pre-defined frequency to maintaining the required defined / set load during the test duration (please note that the load tends to increase due to the heating of the specimen & the test sample), controlling the stroke length to the:
- measurement of frictional force
- calculated value of the coefficient of friction (at any particular time of friction/wear)
- scar measurement
is automated and controlled by the software.
SPECIFICATIONS: Frequency 5 to 200 Hz Stroke Length 20µm to 1 mm Load 0 to 200 Grams Temperature Ambient to 150°C as standard, Higher Power heaters to 250°C optional
Type PC based digital controller Software Custom Windows software “Tribotech Controller” Functions Controls: Stroke length, reciprocation frequency, temperature and test duration.
Allows recalling of test data file for REAL-TIME ANALYSIS
