Fuel Lubricity Evaluator Sensitive to Additives
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
It is proposed that ISSYS utilize its existing fluid density sensor background and micromachining technology to develop a new system capable of monitoring the lubricity of fuels. In the Phase I study, microbeads will be mixed with fluids and passed through the resonating microtube. Interaction with the tube walls will affect the motion of the microbeads resulting in a measurement of lubricity, which will be characterized in the exploratory development portion of the Phase I project. This technology lends itself to a small, portable bench-top microlubricity test system that will be fast, light, reliable and low cost, suitable for many military and commercial applications.
