Brake fluid test equipment BFCS 300

Order no

Brake fluid is hygroscopic, which means that it absorbs water over the course of time. This causes the boiling point to drop and the risk of vapor bubble formation increases. This is why the brake fluid needs to be checked regularly in the workshop and replaced if necessary.

The brake fluid test equipment ATE BFCS 300 allows the boiling point of all standard glycol-based brake fluids (DOT3, DOT 4, DOT 5.1) to be measured. It works using the principle of immersion heating, the only way to determine the exact boiling point no matter which brake fluid is used.

For the test process, a disposable pipette is used to take a sample of the brake fluid from the fluid reservoir and place this in a disposable sampling vial. Both the pipette and the vial are included in the ATE sampling set. Then the brake fluid sample is heated in the ATE BFCS 300 to boiling. The temperature value determined (up to 300°C) is shown digitally on the front of the equipment and can be documented using the printer which is optionally available. The measuring process itself only takes approx. 30 seconds.

An integrated short and long-term counter saves the number of measurements carried out. The last 10 measurements can be retrieved via the modern membrane keyboard and printed using the optional printer. The wide range power adapter provides options for voltage supplies from 90 – 250V.  The ATE BFCS 300 has the CE test mark.
