Thermal-Lube’s Model C-2 Continuous Oil Analysis and Treatment (COAT®) Systemis a robust, cost-effective package specifically configured infrared oil analysis.
Thermal-Lube’s COAT® System analyser, equipped with U.M.P.I.R.E. PRO™ software, is programmed with a variety of analytical tools and methods that will facilitate any used oil condition monitoring program.
All COAT® System models operate on Thermal-Lube’s powerful and user friendly U.M.P.I.R.E. PRO™ Software.
The COAT® C-2 design and functionality allows the user to process up to 120 samples per hour using our unique ‘Dilution Method’ sample preparation. This novel and proven method:
Allows quick and easy sample analysis.
Requires only 10ml of product sample.
Eliminates sample viscosity restrictions.
Reduces cell wear and maintenance costs.
Produces accurate reproducible results.
Significantly reduces disposal costs.
Eliminates needle, tube, and cell cleaning between samples.
Avoids interferences commonly associated with competitive FT-IR oil analysers.
The COAT® System is pre-configured for used oil condition monitoring parameters established by JOAP-TSC and ASTM International New Standard Practice D7418-07. These condition monitoring parameters include the detection of:
Diesel fuel dilution
Oxidation (ASTM D7414-09)
Sulfate by-products (ASTM D7415-09)
Phosphate antiwear(ASTM D7412-09)
Ester Breakdown I & II
Thermal-Lube’s U.M.P.I.R.E. PRO™ software displays key oil condition monitoring parameters on screen along with programmable alarm limits, free-form message warnings, and allows the user to graphically trend results by each machinery component’s history file. Results can be printed or exported for further trending or analysis.
In addition, the COAT® System is programmed with Thermal-Lube’s proprietary Acid Content (AC), Base Number (BN) and Moisture Content (H2O) quantitative methods. These novel methods are less time consuming and less costly than their ASTM titrimetric counterparts.
