Aperture Holder: ISO 16332 Annex B Emulsion Generator

IFTS, Inc. has specially designed an ISO 16332 Annex B Emulsion Generator used to test diesel fuel filter water separation efficiency.

The device produces water droplet size distributions found in real diesel fuel systems, such as pressure and suction filters.

It has been approved world wide by experts in fuel filtration and is already in use.

The aperture holder is easy to use and fits all kinds of fuel filter circuits.

IFTS, Inc. President speaks at AFS Mid-Atlantic Chapter Meeting

IFTS, Inc. USA’s President Gerard J. Lynch, P.E. was a speaker at the American Filtration & Separations Society’s (AFS) Mid-Atlantic Chapter Meeting on September 18th. Lynch presented “The Development and Validation of Low Micron Efficiency Testing Standards” at the conference held at Graver Technologies located in Newark, Delaware.

To address the increasing demand from the filtration industry and new applications in sub micron / low micron filtration, IFTS had implemented an internal project to develop a test bench for filters and filter media with a filtration threshold from 200 nm to 1500 nm.

More and more industry partners have shown interest in validation methods for this level of filtration, including the design of the ultrafiltration membranes, antibacterial filters, nuclear power, and semiconductors.

The new sub micron test method has now been calibrated and validated and several clients have moved forward with using these tests.

The annual AFS Mid-Atlantic Chapter includes members from Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, southern New York and Pennsylvania. Lynch has been the President of this chapter since 1999.

IFTS, Inc. wins New Product of the Year Award at AFS Spring Conference

In June, the American Filtration and Separations Society (AFS) held their annual Spring Conference in Boca Raton, FL where IFTS, Inc. was awarded the New Product of the Year award for the Global Fuel Water Separation (FWS) Filter Efficiency Test Stand. The conference recognizes current and emerging industry leaders.

The FWS test equipment allows for the measurement of the fuel/water separation efficiency of diesel fuel filters for road and off-road vehicle combustion engines according to American, European, and international standard methods.

In 2011, IFTS, Inc. and Sigma Design Company developed and fabricated a liquid filter test stand for mission critical vehicles used by the Egyptian Army. The state-of-the-art testing system was designed to perform qualification tests on diesel and petrol fuel filters in accordance with ISO 4020.
