    Oil Analysis

    Oil analysis is not just for the oil and lubricant industry—it’s widely used in the automotive, aerospace, energy supply and many other industrial branches. Recent studies show that nearly 80% of all machine failures are related to oil contamination. For example, the major source of wear and failure in hydraulic systems is based on particulate contamination. Oil analysis is a proactive method that can save these industries considerable costs year on year. Oil analysis measures the contamination originating from surface degradation caused by mechanical wear and corrosion from integrated components such as hydraulic motors, housing, pumps and valves.
     
    Minimize your maintenance costs and maximize your uptime with oil contamination control.


    ZEISS systems are ideal for quantifying particulate contamination. Use Axio Imager 2 to measure particles down to 2 µm. Your ZEISS system for oil analysis supports ISO 4406, ISO 4407, SAE AS 4059 and your own company’s internal standards.

  • Particles ≥ 2 µm

    Axio Imager 2: Measure particles down to 2 µm

    • Choose a high resolution ZEISS bundle for oil analysis.
    • Speed up analysis times for particle measurement. Time to result per filter sample about 5 minutes (pixel resolution: 1 µm/pixel, scanned area 1500 mm2).
    • Just three steps from start of analysis to result.
    • Count and classify your particles in length, further size parameters and identify fibers.
    • Carry out oil analysis to support national and international standards such as ISO 4406, ISO 4407, SAE AS 4059 and your own company’s standards.

    Your Axio Imager 2 for particle measurement includes:

    • A fully automated microscope with a digital color camera and image analysis software tailored to the demands of oil analysis.
    • Brilliant optics with high resolution and homogenous illumination to produce maximum quality in image acquisition.
    • An integrated motorized Z-Axis for precise and reliable focusing that detects even the smallest particles.
    • AxioVision Particle Analyzer Projects software to measure particle sizes accurate and repeatable.
