Predictive maintenance practices identify the type of wear that is generated by a piece of machinery in addition to the severity.
The SpectroLNFQ200 assists in understanding this severity, and is now capable of providing a direct measurement of dynamic viscosity as well.
SpectroLNF Q200 particle analysis equipment is capable of:
- analysis of used and clean oils and reporting of trends of particles by quantity, size and type
- particle classification on wear types such as fatigue, sliding, non-metallic and cutting wear
- identifying fibers and reporting free water present in ppm
- reporting soot content
- reporting of dynamic viscosity of ISO 15 to ISO 320 grade oil at 40_C; and
- automatically established alarm limits through a dynamic equilibrium calculation.
Viscosity, free water, and soot measurements made by the particle analysis equipment provide a lubricant condition analysis to ensure that oil is lubricating properly.
Wear classification and particle count features aid in early detection of improper wear trends due to excessive wear.
