ABS    Automated BOCLE System
PCS Instruments is pleased to announce the launch of a new instrument - the Automated BOCLE System, or ABS. In response to requests from our customers we have designed the ABS to meet the need for a simple to use, low cost, compact, automatic instrument to perform the ASTM D5001 test method for "Measurement of Lubricity of Aviation Turbine Fuels by the Ball-on-Cylinder Lubricity Evaluator".
ASTM D 5001
Microprocessor control of all instrument functions. Simple user interface. Instrument functions can be upgraded by downloading new firmware. Standard ASTM D5001 test sequence pre-loaded into microprocessor controller. Operator simply has to fit cleaned test specimens, add the fuel sample and press "Start". Automatic control of whole test sequence. No operator-induced variability in test results. Automatic flow controllers for moist and dry air. No operator input needed to set the humidity and flow rate of the conditioned air. Optional PC-based control and data logging software. Allows alternative test programmes to be downloaded into instrument, and test parameters to be recorded as a permanent record. Interchangeable humidity and temperature probes. Humidity and temperature measurement does not need to be re-calibrated - simply replace the combined RH and temperature probe with an exchange pre-calibrated unit.
