Monitoring of soot in lubrication oil by direct trending

Soot accumulates while lubrication oil is in-use and is an indicator of aging. Monitoring the soot level according to ASTM D7844 with Lyza 7000 leads to less downtime of machinery and makes necessary oil changes plannable.

Lubricants are contaminated with soot while being in service. High soot contents lead to filter plugging and increase the oil’s viscosity.
The key to employ a lubrication oil as long as possible, and to replace it only when necessary is to monitor soot levels with FTIR spectroscopy.
