Analysis of lubricants and other fluids in the flucon laboratory
The flucon fluid control GmbH determines the fluid characteristics stated below as a function of temperature and/or pressure on the customer´s behalf. The sensors are based on a modular design and are suited for fluid analysis under extreme conditions in the temperature range from -20°C to 150°C and in the pressure range from 0 bar to 10 kbar.
According to the extent of the analysis, a send-in sample size of 100 – 300 ml per test fluid is sufficient. The flucon high-pressure-laboratory is fully automized and operated by a personal computer. Along with the different sensor modules, the autoclave (the pressure vessel), the hydraulic high-pressure pump and the heating unit are the most important components of the high-pressure laboratory.
The following fluid characteristics are determined:
- temperature range: 20°C to 120°C (standard); -25°C to 150°C (optional)
- pressure range: 0 bar to 10.000 bar
Processing of data
The customer receives the data electronically, including a numeric and graphic representation of data by means of suitable equations. This facilitates any further processing of the data, fast and user-friendly.
