Fluidscan oil analysis equipment from Particle Test monitors lubricant conditions to effectively reduce lubricant waste disposal frequency, providing benefits for the environment as well as the bottom line.
About 40 million tons of lubricants are consumer per year around the world, with 80% of that disposed of before it is necessary.
Significant savings can be made then, by utilising condition monitoring procedures to extend drain intervals and reduce the total amount of lubricant waste disposal.
The handheld FluidScan oil analysis device is capable of on-site measurement of key condition parameters to aid in achieving these savings.
FluidScan oil analysers can be used to measure water contamination, additive depletion, Total Base Number (TBN) and Total Acid Number (TAN).
These are all key parameters to understanding the health and remaining life of lubricants.
FluidScan oil analysers:
- provide an early warning of lubricant degradation and contamination
- extend oil change intervals
- reduce operational and maintenance costs; and
- reduce unscheduled maintenance outages.
