The High Frequency Reciprocating Rig- HFRR (ASTM D6079) to evaluate diesel fuel lubricity. The ball is caused to rub against the disk 1mm stroke at a frequency of 50 Hz for 75 min. Real time down force control , piezo sensors to measure inline friction makes this module very reliable and repeatable.

Close loop down force control with various load profile – constant, linear, step
Various size liquid containers.
Tests can be carried out on collected samples from field or for research purpose.
Film formation studied by electrical contact potential (ECR) changes
Fast, highly repeatable measurements
Fully automated computer controlled
Easy to calibrate, comes with standard oil and samples
Humidity and temperature control and monitoring

Easy to use, clean and operate.
