Condition Monitoring Excellence
Sterile membranes are used to filter the fluid and these are then placed on a suitable growth medium and allowed to incubate. After 5 days, they are assessed for growth.
This test is used to determine the water content in petroleum products by automatic coulometric Karl Fischer titration, using an oven.
Debris to be analysed is placed in the SEM and bombarded with electrons which release X rays characteristic of the element that they hit. These X-rays are used to determine the elemental composition of the alloy.
This test is used to describe the visual appearance of petroleum products in terms of clarity, brightness and free water.
This test is used to determine the flash point of petroleum products in the 40oC to 360oC range by Pensky Martens closed cup equipment.
The sample is injected into an oscillating tube, the change in its oscillation is directly proportional to the Density of the fluid.
This consists of the visual determination of colour in a variety of petroleum compounds such as lubricating oils, heating oils, diesel fuel oils etc. Results are reported as the colour of the sample and the designation of the glass producing a matching colour. ie 7.5 colour to ASTM 1500.
This test determines the amount of carbon residue, in the range 0.10% to 30.0% m/m, left after evaporation and pyrolysis of petroleum products under specified conditions.
This test is designed to determine the Sulphur content in liquid petroleum products.
