What is CFPP? … CFPP, or Cold Filter Plugging Point, is the (low) temperature at which a diesel/heating fuel will not pass through a standardized filter anymore, measured under cooling, vacuum & time conditions as described in the methods ASTM D6371, EN116, EN16329, IP309 and JIS K2288.

 

While fully compliant with conventional CFPP methods and equipped with all control options that are also present in similar instruments, AirSTAR CFPP offers today’s latest and most innovative technology such as NANOtech insulation, microprocessor controlled vacuum pump, solid state liquid-free cooling engine, wireless power and wireless control.

With integrated, solid state cooling down to -105ºC/-157ºF, a bench space of only 15cm/5,9″ (the width of the integrated iPad Mini), the innovative & easy hand-held CFPP module and a no-cables-no-hoses configuration, AirSTAR CFPP offers customers an instrument that is powerful, easy to use, flexible and future-proof. And, of course, with highly accurate and comparable test results.

Operation is easy and fast with the wireless hand-held CFPP module, in which all necessary components for the CFPP test are encaged. The intuitive software on the iPad Mini ensures a short learning curve for operators, so they’re able to create and customize programs and settings quickly. Multiple users and user acces levels can be created by the administrator.

Automatic cleaning is done when the CFPP pod is placed in either the ColdBlock cooling bath or the external cleaning station.

The iPad Mini can control up to 8 CFPP pods simultaneously, which gives customers the flexibility to make any combination of multiple ColdBlock cooling baths, multiple cleaning stations and CFPP pods. With this modular approach a customer’s investment in AirSTAR is always future proof.

Modern, versatile data handling option such as; send to LIMS / Windows PC, make PDF, send email, multiple printing options and more, enable AirSTAR CFPP to fit in flexibly in any existent data workflow.

AirSTAR CFPP Automator

The AirSTAR CFPP Automator is unique in the market, and a great way for customers to upgrade their existing manual cooling bath to a powerful CFPP tester.

AirSTAR CFPP Automator

The AirSTAR CFPP Automator is is a fully automatic instrument for Cold Filter Plugging Point testing, only without the ColdBlock cooling unit you’ll find in the AirSTAR CFPP Analyzer.

Operation is easy and fast with the wireless hand-held CFPP Head, in which all necessary components for the CFPP test are encaged. The intuitive software on the iPad Mini ensures a short learning curve for operators, so they’re able to create and customize programs quickly. Multiple users and user access levels can be created by the administrator.

One iPad Mini can control up to 8 CFPP Head simultaneously, which enables customers to run multiple CFPP tests on one cooling bath, depending on the capacity of their bath. Automatic cleaning is done when the CFPP Head is placed in the cleaning station.

Due to the modular approach, a customer’s investment in AirSTAR is always future proof: any combination of multiple ColdBlock cooling baths, CFPP Heads and cleaning stations is possible at any time in any order.

Modern, versatile data handling option such as; send to LIMS / Windows PC, make PDF, send email, multiple printing options and more, enable AirSTAR CFPP to fit in flexibly in any existent data workflow.
