Product Description
Determines the filterability of Diesel fuels and Biodiesel blend fuels in some automotive equipment at low temperatures. The Low Temperature Flow Test results are indicative of the low temperature flow performance of the test fuel in some diesel vehicles. The test method is especially useful for the evaluation of fuels containing flow improver additives in a range of
+10°C to -30°C.

Automatic Low Temperature Filterability Test Analyzer (LTFT):
Up to (6) 300 ml test vessels are cooled at a specified rate of 1°C/h, and at every °C of cooling, a vacuum of 20 kPa is applied to a filter assembly immersed in the first sample. If the sample recovered in a graduated receiver vessel reaches the 180 ml in 60 sec., the analysis continues to the further 1°C test temperature (passed). When the sample doesn't reach the 180 ml within
the 60 sec., the test is failed. The temperature of the last passing result test has to be recorded as minimum LTFT pass temperature. The instrument is a six place floor model, equipped with a built in cooling system with a single stage CFC free motor compressor for temperatures as low as -45°C. Integrated Vacuum System consisting of a 350 kPa micropump, vacuum stabilizer and electronic control for vacuum regulation of 20 kPa. Fully automatic, controlled by an integrated panel pc with touch screen and a large display. All the parameters and the current status of the analysis are shown in real time.

Safety Features:
~ Pressure controller for 1st stage motor compressor
~ Thermo-switch for cooling / heating jacket
~ Motor compressors with internal overload devices

Integrated Managing Panel PC
~ TFT 12" touch screen . AMD Geode800
~ 512Mb RAM . 2x USB ports
~ 1x LAN 10/100Mbps . 262K Color
~ 1024 x 768 Resolution . Storage Capacity of up to 60,000 analyses

Sophisticated Software Package
The LTFT analyzer is managed by an easy to use Windows® based software package. The two USB ports allow for connection to an external printer and an additional external PC. The Software features customizable analysis parameters, test methods and results reports. All analytical parameters are graphed and displayed in real time as well as recorded in Microsoft® Excel file format. kPa.
