Oils do more than just lubricate. They are an historical archive, giving you a remarkably accurate documentation of machine events and contaminant ingressions.
Can we access this valuable information?
The RULER View™ provides the full picture of a fluid’s antioxidant health – it’s a window into the health of your lubricant. This technology is a critical part of an effective condition monitoring program.
Oil Analysis has proven to be a very effective predictive technology in the reliability toolbox. One of the keys to this success is performing the right test at the right time. This allows one to extract as much actionable information from the sample as possible. The RULER ViewTM provides critical insight into the health of the lubricant not visible with other testing technologies.
All oils eventually fail due to oxidation. In many applications such as turbines, hydraulics, compressors and aerospace, oxidation is the primary mode of failure.
In these applications, the most important additive components are antioxidants. The patented RULER View™ uses Linear Sweep Voltammetry to quickly and accurately measure active antioxidants in lubricants and easily trend the depletion of these critical additives. With this information, you now know how much longer your fluid may last. We call this the oil’s Remaining Useful Life (RUL). In the past, indirect measurements of the fluid’s antioxidants were taken. One common test is RPVOT (ASTM D2272) that examines the oxidative stability of the fluid. This technology has been shown to be less effective in today’s complex formulations employing hydro-treated mineral oils and new antioxidant technologies.
Other techniques to directly measure antioxidants such as infrared analysis (FTIR) often cannot provide the full picture. FTIR interpretation is complex and some additive components mask the critical antioxidant region.
Only the RULER View™ provides the full picture of a fluid’s antioxidant health and is the optimum window into the health and life of your lubricant. RULER technology is a critical part of an effective condition monitoring program.
Using the RULER View™ extracts the maximum historical data from your oil allowing your organization to make better decisions in the future.
Industry Support Be comfortable that your RULER View™ investment is supported by industry. The RULER technology has received strong industry support over the last 15 years. There are four ASTM standards written around it (D7590, D6971, D6810 and D7527) as well as industry guidelines (DASTM4378 D6244 and DIN - VGB M416). Major equipment OEMs such as Siemens and GE recommend RULER as part of a condition monitoring program. Furthermore, most oil and additive manufacturers use the RULER technology as both a condition monitoring and research tool to gain further insights into their lubricant formulations.
