Cold Filter Plugging Point of diesel, biodiesel and heating fuels.

Measuring CFPP Principle

The sample is cooled down according to the methods and when the preselected temperature is reached a vacuum of 20 mBar is automatically applied to the sample. The product is sucked through the filter into the calibrated aspiration pipette. If the sample takes more than 60 seconds to reach the upper barrier detector (during the aspiration phase), or it fails to return completely into the test jar before that the product has cooled by a further 1°C, the Cold Filter Plugging Point is reached.

Measuring CFPP Devices

  • Aspiration pipette
  • Filter assembly
  • Light barrier

Measuring Temperature Probe

  • Platinum resistance PT100 class A


OilLab 250 – external vacuum generator including:

The software includes:

Analysis Menu

  • Standard method as per ASTM / IP / ISO / EN / DIN… norms of reference
  • Optional methods:
    • T-sample – T-bath (Delta T constant)
    • cooling rate °C / h
    • selectable bath steps
    • fast bath with selectable temperature
  • Audible alarm and displayed messages at the end of the analysis and in case of errors and/or malfunctions
  • The parameters displayed and updated in real time are:
    • sample temperature
    • bath temperature
    • vacuum pressure
    • low level light value
