Wear Metal Analysis

ANALEX fdMplusANALEX fdMplus
Developed in co-operation with Shell Marine Lubes, the fdMplus implements a skill set in sensitive magnetometry into a design suitable for On-Site applications.  Sensitive to very low ferrous contaminations levels (<1 micron) and reporting directly in ppm for comparison with laboratory test results. Suitable for use on 50 or 5 ml oil and pre-prepared grease samples. Test time typically <10 seconds per sample.

Ferrous Wear MeterFerrous Wear Meter

New - The Ferrous Wear Meter(FWM) brings PPM wear metal analysis capability to On-Site oil analysis in a simpler format than offered by the fDMplus. Simply, with no tedious sample preperation, it detects iron contamination and reports directly in industry standard PPM values. Provided with reference check samples, it is suitable for both industrial applications and also for use on marine two stroke scavenge oil samples for feed rate optimisation programmes and monitoring of cylinder conditions under fuel switching applications. Typical test time < 2 seconds per sample.

The new ANALEX pqL is the latest development of a widely accepted ANALEX pq laboratory instrument range. Enhancements include greatly improved reproducibility at low pq levels (<25 PQ), reduced footprint, much faster (0.5X) cycle time and better auto-calibration. Accepts used and in-service oil and pre-prepared grease samples. Reports results in PQ Index and is suitable for connection to laboratory LIMS systems and remote operation.

Used to prepare cleaned, graded ferrographic samples for subsequent microscopic examination. The ANALEX fdMplus, pqF and pqL will all easily identify used or in-service oil samples with high iron levels. Further examination of the particle size and shape can indicate the form and progress of machine wear e.g. cutting, sliding, fatigue etc. The ANALEX rpd in particular compliments the new ANALEX pqL with rapid preparation of ferrographic slides from an initial dirty sample of used lubricating oil or grease.
