Physical Interface

Component-specific fixtures are specifically designed and manufactured for each pump model.

Electrical

Power supply for up to 3 kW electric pumps. Test solenoid-based variable displacement pumps.

DAQ

Uses an industry-leading National Instruments® data acquisition system. Data is provided in CSV format.

We can control the amount of torsional vibration can be controlled so that the component under test can be tested with different nominal speeds and torque pulsation profiles.

Thermal Cycling

Rapidly cool the pump body to -40°C and then heat it up to +150°C.

AERATION TESTING

Measure and control aeration in oil

MEASURE AERATION

Aerated oil can lead to a myriad of symptoms, including oxidation, thermal and oil degradation and cavitation of the oil pump. Powertrain design and operating conditions can dramatically increase aeration rates. 

Aerify™ Measure is available to provide a continuous, real-time measurement of aeration rates on the inlet or outlet of the component-under-test on an ATA Lab™ test system.

CONTROL AERATION

Downsized oil reservoirs result in lower oil residence times, increased agitation and more frequent pressurization cycles, all of which may result in an increased aeration rate. Performance and longevity of a component may significantly decrease with the presence of air, making controlled aeration tests necessary. 

Aerify™ Control can accurately introduce and control the aeration rate within an ATA Lab™ test system lubrication conditioning circuit. Aeration rates can follow an engine or transmission profile as required.
