System EPSILON+ for the measurement of dielectric fluid properties (Conductivity, Permittivity, DDF)

Dielektriksensor EPSILON+


New Challenges in the field of fluid research and electric driveline development

Due to the advancing electro and hybrid mobility, lubricants and operating liquids need to meet new requirements regarding their dielectric properties. Modern synthetic or gear oils are not perfect isolators – even most of the oils used for the classic combustion engine are already characterized by a minimum level of electrical conductivity. This helps to decrease tension once overvoltages occur which are for example caused by static charging within gears.

Electric drives are now literally creating a new field of tension for oils. In the presence of high voltages and high frequencies, knowledge of the complex fluid impedance is useful in order to assess the performance of the respective fluid.

In addition to e-mobility, there are numerous other application areas for the EPSILON+, e.g. the examination of rolling bearing greases. The knowledge of dielectric characteristics such as the relative permittivity or the dissipation factor tan δ is also relevant for the development and operation of transformers and large-scale electro-technical applications in which oils are for example used as a coolant.

With EPSILON+ flucon presents a powerful measuring system for capturing the essential dielectric parameters of fluids.

flucon's latest innovation:

EPSILON+ Dielectricity Meter

EPSILON+ is a compact laboratory measuring device that is used for the precise measurement of the complex fluid impedance, based on DIN IEC 60247 (own DIN test standard coming soon). This reliable system determines the following parameters:

  •  Specific Electrical Conductivity
  •  Relative Permittivity / Dielectric Constant   ε r
  •  Dielectric Dissipation Factor (DDF) tan δ


EPSILON+  //  Measurement

EPSILON+ is characterized by its operator convenience. Less than 10 ml fluid quantity are sufficient for the measurement set-up of the screw-in sensor. The sample is filled into the supplied stainless steel container and heated up to the desired test temperature by means of a thermostat (optionally available). Automatic measurement can be conducted as well within a desired temperature range, with increments of your choice.

EPSILON+  //  Features

  •  determination of the complex fluid impedance
  •  only small samples required (8 ml)
  •  high accuracy and repeatability
  •  wear-free stainless steel screw-in sensor
  •  integrated temperature measurement (PT100)
  •  optional accessory: thermostat for automatic temperature control of your sample
  •  evaluation electronics in compact table housing with LC Display
  •  EPSILON+ PC software for control and measurement evaluation included

Optional thermostat for automatic sample temperature control

We also offer different suitable thermostats, which can be controlled automatically by the EPSILON+ device and quickly set up whatever sample temperature you desire for measurement:

  • OMEGA dry thermostat (standard, as shown below): RT to 180°C
  • Julabo fluid thermostat with heat exchanger vessel for additional cooling: -20°C to 180°C

E is for enhancement.
