Powerful Technology for On-Site Oil Analysis
The PAL (Portable Analyzer for Lubrication) is an extremely small mid-IR fingerprint region spectrometer specifically designed for on-site oil analysis.
The PAL was designed to give the user the capabilities of a much larger, laboratory FTIR system without the complexity, maintenance requirements or cost . The software is designed to provide immediate answers to the user without the need to understand infrared spectroscopy. With the touch of a button, the PAL system provides valuable information about the condition of a lubricating fluid. This allows the user to make quick decisions in the field and then make an immediate assessment of the remediation step.
A One Minute PAL Analysis Yields:
• Water - monitor for intrusion at very low levels
• Oxidation - Measure oxidation and nitration by-product formation as they occur
• Additive Depletion - accurately determine critical additive levels such as anti-oxidant, anti-wear and extreme pressure additives
• Contamination - ensure the proper lubrication has been shipped to you and that it is fit for service before accepting delivery.
Simple to Use - Minimal Training Required
With the PAL’s innovative sampling interface, no sample preparation is required and only 2 drops of sample is needed for analysis. The analysis take less than 2 minutes and cleanup takes seconds. Because the PAL’s software and user interface are intuitive, no technical training is required to use the system. Screen prompts assist the user in performing an analysis and the results are presented in an easy-to understand format.
