The fuel valve tester is used to perform post-manufacture acceptance testing on pressure regulating valves used in fuel injection systems. During the test, the pressure vs. flow characteristics for each valve is determined. The values obtained from the tests are compared to an acceptable standard to determine whether each valve is rejected or not.

The temperature of the oil that is used as a test medium is controlled accurately. This ensures that the physical properties of the test medium are constant and within specification.

Three valves are tested simultaneously. The system is controlled by a PLC linked to touch screen HMI for a user friendly interface.
