The MicroLab 40 is a fully automated oil analyzer that provides diagnostic analysis of engine, generator, gear box, hydraulics, power steering, and transmission fluids.
The MicroLab, originally developed by On-Site Analysis, has an embedded expert system which translates all of the analytical data into maintenance actions specific to your equipment. The artificial intelligence of the system is built from over 20 years of industry knowledge and more than 10,000 rules statements to generate the diagnostic statements that are specific to each application, the type of equipment and the type of oil.
The MicroLab is compliant with ASTM D7417 “Standard Test Method Analysis of In-Service Lubricants Using Particular Four-Part Integrated Tester (Atomic Emission Spectroscopy, Infrared Spectroscopy, Viscosity, and Laser Particle Counter)
MicroLab 30 – Provides automated comprehensive diagnostic analysis of engine, generator, gear box, power steering, and transmission fluids.
MicroLab 40 – Provides automated comprehensive diagnostic analysis of engine, generator, gear box, hydraulics, power steering, and transmission fluids. Recommended if particle count is needed for hydraulics.
The MicroLab infrared spectrometer measures six key parameters which indicate potential oil degradation and contamination. Both the MicroLab 30 and 40 provide:
The MicroLab Optical Emission Spectrometer quantifies wear metals caused from mechanical components, as well as other elements from oil additives and contamination.
The MicroLab Dual Temperature Viscometer (DTV) provides kinematic viscosity analysis which can identify potential oil degradation or contamination.
The MicroLab 40 is equipped with a particle counter to measure particle contamination which is crucial for maintaining hydraulic systems, compressors and turbines.
