Diesel engine oil analysis will identify contamination and wear as well as measure the oil’s alkaline reserve to determine its remaining useful life. It is also important to test bulk fuel deliveries and the engine coolant in use as both fuel and coolant system health can affect optimum engine operation.
|Spectrochemical Analysis (21 elements)||Provides treatment additive levels and detects presence of elemental contaminants and corrosion that can cause component wear|
|Viscosity @ 100º||Can indicate incorrect lubricant in use or “lube mixing”|
|FTIR||Detects Fuel Dilution, Fuel Soot, Glycol, Oxidation, Nitration|
|Water||Detects presence of water|
|Total Base Number (TBN)|
