ABS - Automated Ball-on-Cylinder System

Fast and repeatable testing

PCS Instruments is the world leader in fuel lubricity test equipment manufacturing both the High FrequencyReciprocating Rig (HFRR) and the Automated Ball-on-cylinder System (ABS). The HFRR is used for measuring thelubricity of low-sulphur diesel fuel whilst the ABS is an automated jet fuel lubricity tester which performs the ASTMD5001 test method for “Measurement of Lubricity of Aviation Turbine Fuels by the Ball-on-Cylinder Lubricity Evaluator”.

The ABS comprises a single, compact, bench top mounted unit. The onlyexternal services required are compressed air to the specification in ASTMD5001 and 100-230V mains power. The internal de-ionised water reservoirrequires refilling after approximately 1000 tests. An air cleaner/dryer is availablewhich can clean and de-humidify normal laboratory or shop air to meet therequirements of the ASTM standard (<0.1 ppm hydrocarbon).

Test Methods:

ASTM D5001

Features and Applications

The instrument is pre-configured to carry out the ASTM D5001 test method. An optional PC based data logging application allows test data to be recorded during a test An upgrade kit is also available to enable the instrument to perform the ASTM scuffing load test for diesel fuel lubricity (ASTM D6078).
