HMT 1000

Heatable modular test system for oil mist separators better as ISO 17536

Quality assurance and the development of filters/separators/traps should preferably be performed under test conditions relevant to the actual conditions encountered in practice. For this reason, oil separators must be tested at high temperatures of up to 120°C and, depending on the type of application, at high pressures.

With the modular test system HMT 1000, oil separators (e.g., for the separation of blow-by aerosols in internal combustion engines or the separation of oil mist downstream of compressors) are quickly and accurately characterized and, in particular, successfully tested under practically relevant conditions through isothermal particle measurements up to 120°C:

  • Fraction separation efficiency
  • Burden/hold time
  • Total separation efficiency / gravimetric analysis
  • Pressure loss

For many years, numerous companies worldwide have profited from the advantages of the heatable and pressure-resistant Palas test components for isothermal and isobaric particle size and particle quantity measurements on oil mists.

HMT 1000 filter test rigs have been used internationally with great success in the industry since 2001.
