Test method:

The portable remaining useful life evaluation routine (RULER) instrument measures the oxidative resistance levels of mineral and synthetic hydrocarbon oils, ester-based and biodegradable oils.

Utilising voltammetric techniques, the RULER quantitatively analyses the relative concentrations of antioxidants in new and used oils in order to monitor the depletion rates of the antioxidant protection package in the oil.

The RULER available from A.L.P.E can be used proactively in order to determine proper oil change intervals and to extend oil change intervals through timely antioxidant additive replenishments.

In addition, the RULER can be used to quantify antioxidant levels of incoming and stored oil supplies and to detect abnormal operating conditions prior to equipment failure signalled by abrupt antioxidant depletion rates.
