This system was designed to automate life cycle testing of engine components and gaskets when exposed to engine oil temperatures ranging from 75 to 300 Deg F. Oil circulating at 2 to 8 gpm and 1 to 15 psi simulates engine operating conditions. Testing parameters are downloaded to the cell and data is collected from sensors using the labs MDAC network. Automating the cell allowed for 24/7 testing with real time monitoring and data collection. Repeatability of the test improved while the time required to run a test was reduced.

IFS worked with product engineers, lab engineers and their technicians in the test lab to establish the application requirements as well as the best process for testing. HOCC-14100 Is a hot oil test cell designed to do life cycle testing on valve covers, oil pans, gaskets and other engine components at up to 300 degrees F.

IFS has 20 years of experience building turnkey systems for:
