Article 1

Oil Cleanliness


At Particle Test we often get asked,  what is oil cleanliness and how should I measure oil cleanliness? Oil cleanliness as the name suggests is how clean your oil is, but more to the point oil cleanliness is telling you how effectively your lubricant is working. Oil cleanliness is normal measured through the use of the ISO4406 or ISO code, NAS or the SAE 749D.


Article 2

It is also the ideal system for used oil analysis laboratories that need to test the viscosity of a wide range of lubricants.


Article 7

Solution to Clean Injectables

An important factor in intravenous solutions is the correct dose, equally important is ensuring that the inject able solution contain no particles of a harmful size. Intravenous solutions with large particle contamination may result in problems as serious as a heart failure.


Article 8

Surface Area of Dry Ingredients

This laboratory unit can measure 3 sample simultaneously and is capable of measuring sample with surface areas as low as 0.01m2/g. Equipped with the powerful and easy to use BEL master software makes the BELSORP mini II ideal for both research and QC applications.

Article 15

FluidScan for On-Site Oil Condition Monitoring


The FluidScan analyzes lubricants and fluids using infrared spectroscopy, a technique that has found wide acceptance as a primary test for contamination and degradation. It performs the analyses with the same accuracy as laboratory instruments, but does so on-site in a handheld version. The FluidScan thus reports and stores information on lubricant condition at the point of use.
