Fuel dilution is an important consideration in engine oil performance, and ultimately one of the key reasons oil changes are required. Gas chromatography is the currently accepted method for determining fuel dilution in engine oils. Although workable, it is not practical from the standpoint of obtaining real-time fuel dilution data.
Key Benefits (All Systems):
- Reliable and repeatable Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy based analysis
- Easy to use UMPIRE software allows any user to determine condition of lubricant
- Use with biodiesel, ethanol and petroleum based feuls
- Real-time measuring and trending of lubricant conditions
