Early detection of problems in lube oil is essential for machinery, bearings, generators, or any rotating equipment.
Lube oil can be affected in many ways — oxidation can occur, it can become contaminated from fuel, water, or refrigerant leakage, or it can mix with exhaust from the pistons introducing soot.
Additives in the oil also breakdown over time. When lubricating oil quality declines and costly equipment failures occur.
microVISC-m™ measures the viscosity of an oil and uses ASTM methods to report the kinematic and absolute viscosity of an oil and uses ASTM methods to report the kinematic and absolute viscosity of the sample at the desired reference temperature (s), typically 40 ºC, 50 ºC, or 100 ºC, allowing for easy determination of oil health. The rectangular slit method employed in the measurement is incredibly fast and easy to use with little to no training.
