MFT is microprocessor controlled and provides a simple user interface using 2 buttons and a backlit alphanumeric 4 line display. You can select different tests, setting parameters, calibration of  the temperature and pressure sensors. A printer can be connected to provide a permanent record of the test parameters, results and a filterability graph. The pressure and temperature of the fuel are continuously monitored while it is pumped through the specified filter into the waste container.
The recorded pressure rise, or the volume of pumped sample that causes a specified pressure to be exceeded, are used by the microprocessor to calculate the test result. Standard tests use 300ml of fuel pumped at 20ml/min.

Filter blocking tendency (FBT) range:

1.0 to 30 (low value is better)

Filterability quality factor (FQF) range:

100 to 1 (higher value is better)
