Oil analysis

Oil change intervals even today are determined empirically and oil changes are realized without taking into consideration the real quality of the lubricant. This causes unnecessary costs. If an oil change is done too early, a still flawless lubricant is thrown away; if an oil change is done too late, machine damages can occur. The ideal case would be to do oil changes depending on the condition. The highest reliability is provided by a laboratory analysis realized with a correctly taken oil sample. With the KLEENOIL oil analysis equipment oil contamination or changes in the oil condition can be determined on site, before and during operation. For this purpose we offer various equipment and oil analysis sensors.

 
 

Analysis equipment

KLEENOIL ICC - Identification Contamination Control

KLEENOIL ICC has been designed for the monitoring of vital parameters that cause an application relevant change of the fluid. These are amongst others:

  • Contamination with water and/or solid particles of any kind
  • Contamination through mixing with other oil types
  • Considerable changes in additive content/condition
  • Considerable changes in viscosity and/or oil ageing

To collect the data the KLEENOIL ICC uses a capacitive sensor to read the oil quality in comparison to the saved calibration. Based on the change of the oil dielectric the actual or rather the still existing oil quality or contamination is shown as a final result. Most application relevant oil values are dependent on each other and this also applies to their changes. For this reason the KLEENOIL ICC and its installed measuring and analysis principle have been designed for the reading and monitoring of the overall condition. A retrieval of single values has not been allowed for.

TriboCheck

KLEENOIL TriboCheck is an oil test and analysis equipment which enables a fast supervision of the oil condition by measuring the grade of dielectric variation. All variations resulting from general oil contamination, changes of the viscosity, changes in the chemical composition, oxidation and oil ageing are measured by the KLEENOIL TriboCheck and evaluated automatically. In the display a value in per cent resulting from the sum of the whole variation is shown. For the result the bar indicator is decisive, indicating if and to what extent the oil still can be used. The KLEENOIL TriboCheck is ideal for a quick analysis to determine whether the employed oil can still be used, should be changed or analysed in a laboratory.

OTK - Oil Test Kit

The KLEENOIL OTK (Oil Test Kit) is a complete set for taking oil samples as well as a number of oil analysis steps which can be realized directly at the machine. Such tests usually are only possible in a laboratory. The KLEENOIL OTK consists of:

  • Set for oil sample taking
  • Small microscope with light
  • Optical analysis set for particle contamination
  • Water analysis set
  • Oil temperature sensor
  • KLEENOIL TriboCheck
  • Viscosity test for the comparison / test of the viscosity
  • Oelcheck sample bottle for a complete analysis in the laboratory
  • Documentation regarding operation and interpretation
  • Case for the equipment

To use the KLEENOIL OTK, no further qualification is needed than a basic understanding of the oil. Neither electric power nor other tools that are not included in the Oil Test Kit are required. The handling and realization of the single steps is clearly described for the user. The KLEENOIL OTK is a mobile miniature laboratory. If a further, more extensive or complete oil analyisis is necessary, it is possible to send an oil sample directly to our laboratory for evaluation.

Particle Counter IOS

The IOS iCount Oil Sampler is an oil analysis equipment in a robust housing; ideal for mobile application. This particle counter has been developed to rapidly and exactly determine the contamination level of the operating fluid. It uses proven laser technology. By means of an integrated re-chargeable battery unit (charger is included in the delivery) and an integrated pump measurements can be made absolutely independently from the system. The data is shown immediately on the integrated LED-display. The installed equipment software, the supplied PC-software and the installed memory allow to edit the measured data also directly on site and at any time. Able to sample directly from a high pressure line with the addition of a pressure reducing adaptor.

KleenCheck

The KleenCheck is small, lightweight and can be easily installed at any system with sample points. It is a mechanical instrument which doesn´t need any electrical power and therefore can be used in the field und provide information about the contamination immediately. The cleanliness class according to ISO and NAS is indicated. The test takes only a few minutes. This portable cleanliness class indicator is available as low pressure model KleenCheck 4 and as high-pressure model Kleen-Check 240.  With the additional equipment, KleenCheck AirChamber, it is even possible to make an external cleanliness class check, i.e. from a sample bottle.

Laboratory

For a complete analysis of your lubricant it will be a pleasure to make a detailed test in our own or an independent laboratory. This allows for detailed information to determine the measures that are required. By this means it can be determined really in detail which measures are required. With the oil analysis data we provide a comprehensible and summarized annotation and recommendation. Furthermore our technical service is available for explanation of the individual values as well as their influence and dependence upon each other.  We are looking forward to receiving your inquiry.
