Fluid analysis service optimizes filtration processes
Targeted for industrial applications, a new contamination control solution provides a snapshot of what is happening inside a piece of equipment. Users can gauge the condition of lubricant and identify component wear and contamination in virtually any industrial application.
Having debuted at the 2008 CON-EXPO/CON-AGG and IFPE Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV, Donaldson Company’s improved Fluid Analysis Service is targeted for industrial applications. The new contamination control solution is reported to provide a complete snapshot of what is happening inside a piece of equipment.
The service allows users to gauge the condition of lubricant and identify component wear and contamination in virtually any industrial application. Test reports color code individual results by severity, highlighting for users areas of significant concern. Graphical representations of fluid cleanliness levels, along with a Target ISO Chart accompanied by an image of the photomicropatch, are done on each sample.
The service posts results for view online almost immediately after testing is complete. Problem summary reports and data mining capabilities help users identify areas for improvement in their daily maintenance practices. For more information, click here .
