Popular Techniques

Houillon Viscometry

Used to determine the ISO viscosity grade of a lubricant, put simply, to determine its resistance to flow, essentially "thickness". A useful tool for identifying oil mixes and grade verification.

 

Ferrous Wear

Determines content of magnetic material present in a given sample, typically iron, by applying a magnetic field to the sample and measuring distortion. Helpful for identifying large-scale wear particles.

 

Elemental Analysis by ICP-OES

Determination of elemental content in lubricant samples, providing detail on wear, contamination and additive content, presenting results in parts-per-million (PPM).

 

Particle Count (ISO 4406) - by Laser Counter

Primarily used for hydraulic oil samples, to determine particulate contamination present in samples. Three specific particle size bandings are used (4, 6 and 14 microns).

 

Water Content by Karl Fischer Auto-titration

Used to quantify the amount of water present in a given oil sample by titrating with an iodine-based reagent. Water may be present due to poor storage, condensation, environment or seal failure.

 

Acid and Base Number by Auto-titration

Potentiometric titration to determine acid concentration of the oil (or in the case of BN, “Reserve Alkalinity “), key in understanding additive effectiveness and oil breakdown.
