Oil Analyzer Helps Prevent Breakdowns
All this information is available in seconds, without sending samples elsewhere for analysis. The unit gives top performance even with new synthetic oils, explains the manufacturer. To test an oil sample, you first place in the sensor cup three or four drops of oil of the type to be tested, and adjust the meter needle to zero. Next, you clean the sensor cavity and place in it three or four drops of the used oil. The meter needle will deviate in a direction (increase or decrease) of the change in the electrochemical property. Questionable readings will fall into one of three groups: Group One: Indicates accumulations of soot, sludge, dirt or oxidation. Group two: Indication of water, anti-freeze, acidss or metal particles. Group three: Indicates presence of gasoline. This reading, however slight, calls for immediate action to identify the source of the dilution.
