- Simple to use interface –digitally computer control of all instrument functions
- Standard ASTM D 5001 test sequence pre-loaded into ABT microprocessor controller – operator fits cleaned specimens, adds fuel sample
& presses the ‘Start Test’ button.
- Automatic control of test sequence-no operator-included variability in test results.
- Automatic flow controllers for moist and dry air-no operator input required to control the humidity and flow rate of the conditioned
- PC based data logging of Motor speed, test duration, fuel temperature, air temperature, humidity recorded during the test & a
summary printed out confirming that all parameters were within the specified limits.
- Interchangeable humidity & temperature probes-humidity and temperature measurement does not need to be re-calibrated- simply
replace the combined relative humidity and temperature probe with an exchange pre-calibrated unit.
- Heating & Cooling System through Peltier Heating &Cooling System
- Digital Microscope with Image Acquisition System & software
- PC based data acquisition & analyze system of motor speed, test duration, fuel temperature, air temperature, humidity.
- Ultrasonic Cleaner
The Automated BOCLE (Ball-on-Cylinder Lubricity Evaluator) Tester is a digitally controlled Ball-on-Cylinder wear test system which provides a fast, repeatable assessment of
the performance of jet fuels that fully conforms to the ASTM D 5001 test method for “Measurement of Lubricity of Aviation Turbine Fuels by
the Ball-on-Cylinder Lubricity Evaluator”.
The Computer controlled Automated BOCLE Tester is a single, compact, bench top mounted unit. The only external services required are
compressed air to the specification in ASTM D5001and 115VAC 16Amps, 1 Phase power. The internal de-Ionized water reservoir requires
refilling after approximately1000 tests. An air cleaner/dryer is available which can clean and de-humidify normal laboratory or shop air
to meet the requirements of the ASTM standard (Greater than 0.1 ppm hydrocarbon).
