A smart lubricant and fuel diagnostic system to identify equipment at risk of failure before deployment - custom made for the British military

Developed for the British Military, a practical rugged hand-held external lubricant condition monitor for any existing plant and machinery, operationally tested to bring the sample to 40°C in environments at -20 to +50°C, and the test method having a correlation linear with r2 value = 0.99 over a range of 7 to 1100 cStokes  (mm2/s).

The laboratory based system clearly differentiated between samples that could be considered good condition and samples from equipment requiring maintenance investigation.  The comparison with “gold standard” laboratory test showed comparable performance.
