Analysis of lubricants and other fluids in our fluid laboratory and HP lab
flucon fluid control GmbH determines the fluid characteristics stated below as a function of temperature and/or pressure on the customer´s behalf. Our 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 10.000 bar.
According to the extent of the analysis, a send-in sample size of 50 ml to 300 ml per test fluid is sufficient.
The following fluid characteristics are determined:
- temperature range: 20°C to 120°C (standard); -20°C to 150°C (optional)
- pressure range: 0 bar to 10.000 bar
Lab services under state-of-the-art conditions
Each fluid analysis is conducted at our flucon laboratory in our Barbis headquarters with our own, regularly calibrated instruments. Thanks to our brand-new facilities from Köttermann and the strict compliance with our quality guidelines our staff of experts works under ideal conditions in regard to lab ambience, cleanliness and of course safety.
One of a kind: our High-Pressure Lab
With the help of a custom high-pressure system that was specially designed for our unique metering procedures, we are capable of recording various parameters of material data as a function of temperature and pressure (10 kbar max.), which makes our analysis service completely unique even from the global perspective.
Both the recording of measured values (including data preparation) and the process control of the entire system can be run automatically. In addition to the high-pressure inserts for measuring the fluid characteristics, the test stand consists of an autoclave (high-pressure container) with temperature control, automatic compression control and a custom software that records each run as a protocol.
What happens next: processing of the recorded data
Each customer receives a digital protocol of the lab results. This data includes a numeric and graphic representation of all the results as well as a set of suitable equations which allow further analysis and (in the case of thermodynamic analysis) even extrapolation of further temperature/pressure combinations. This facilitates any further processing of your data, in a fast and user-friendly way.
