A ball-on-plate reciprocating friction and wear test system, assessing the performance of both fuels and lubricants under boundary conditions.
With over 2000 systems worldwide, the PCS HFRR is the industry leading instrument for analysing diesel fuel lubricity. PCS are the original manufacturers of the HFRR instrument, which has been used in the development of all the current related test methods. With over 30 years of development experience and continual design, quality, and user experience improvements, we remain at the forefront of the market.
PCS Instruments is the only instrument supplier specified on the following test methods: ISO 12156, ASTM D6079, ASTM D7688.
Our latest version of the HFRR, the HFR2, allows fully automated testing. A wide range of accessories are available, including the humidity cabinet and temperature control unit (TCU). These enable labs, operating even in harsh conditions, to meet the requirements of the standard diesel fuel lubricity test methods.
The instrument’s ability to collect continuous friction measurements, the wide range of specimen materials available, and the ability to customise test parameters also make the HFRR a popular choice for tribology research.
