HFRR Tester Overview

This next generation High Frequency Reciprocating Rig HFRR testing machine (FFT-M) has real time programmable force control , piezo sensors to measure real time friction, inline total wear scar depth, wide temperature range, and voice coil actuators. The reciprocating rig is mostly used to evaluate diesel fuel lubricity. The ease of use, programmeable down force control, advanced sensors makes this tester highly reliable and repeatable.

Module Features
● 0.1 to 500 Hz, 5 µm to 4.0 mm
● Real Time Down Force Control
● Friction, Wear, Acoustic Emission, Film Formation
●  Piezo Load Sensors
● -40 to 500C Temperature Range
● Close loop humidity control
● Enclosure for Inert gas 

Detailed Information

HFRR test can be carried out on collected samples from field or for research purpose. The HFRR lubricity tester (both models) are fully automated and computer controlled. The setup is easy to calibrate and comes with standard oil and samples. It conforms to several ASTM standards including the most widely used ASTM d6079. The hfrr equipment is typically used predict the performance of additives, fuel injection application, study friction wear, diesel engine lubricity, lubricity improvers etc.
