The drivers of innovation

In order to guarantee reliable and quality vehicles, the automotive industry is subject to strict regulations, both in terms of safety, performance and competitiveness of materials and equipment. Manufacturers in this sector must constantly adapt and renew themselves.
According to standardised methods or specific specifications, we support you in all your projects.
We have been working closely with international automotive manufacturers for decades. We contribute to the specifications of important automotive customers and to the development of international standards. For example, we have written the international standard ISO 16232 (parts 1 to 10), which is the reference standard for the cleanliness testing of parts and fluids.

IFTS is the European reference centre in the fields of particulate contamination measurement and control as well as efficiency/performance testing of liquid and air filters.

Our laboratories carry out:
  • Cleanliness tests on all types of parts from fluid circuits
  • Filter performance tests (air / liquids)
  • Fluid analysis
  • Liquid/solid separation studies
  • Tailor-made equipment to meet your specific needs.
