Eliminating uncertainty in oil condition
FluidScan® Q1000 / Q1100 provides direct quantitative measurement of a lubricant’s condition and plays an important role in Machine Condition Monitoring (MCM) for proactive and predictive maintenance in Reliability Management programs. It determines when oil needs to be serviced due to degradation of the oil chemistry or contamination by other fluids such as water or the wrong oil. It is compliant with ASTM D7889 “Standard Test Method for Field Determination of In-Service Fluid Properties Using IR Spectroscopy”.
It also fulfils the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines (NESHAP RICE) requirements for extending oil change intervals in engines and back-up generators when used in conjunction with the Spectro Q3050 Portable Viscosimeter.
This portable IR spectrometer uses advanced data processing and a built-in oil application library to deliver immediate, actionable quantitative results for water, TAN and TBN.
Applications include mineral and synthetic oils used in machinery components:
- Gear boxes
- Hydraulic systems
- Diesel engines
- FluidScan FLSC 1000 - stand-alone operation
- But useful in combination with portable viscometer 'SpectroVisc Q3000'
- Yellow colour
- FluidScan FLSC 1100 - for integration in OilView software
- To be combined with Spectro 5200 Trivector Analyzer
