Control Fluid Assessment (CFA®)

The most comprehensive test package available for control fluids (fire-resistant fluids). Fire-resistant fluids can remain in service for many years with the proper maintenance. The CFA® package is based on testing recommended by ASTM D4293, major OEM’s and Bureau Veritas’ years of experience to optimize fluid life and avoid costly fluid replacement and down time. As with the TLA®, each CFA® includes customized, detailed interpretations and recommended actions.
