LubAnac Off-Road

The LubAnac Off-Road oil analysis diagnostics system for optimal fleet management

 

LubAnac Off-Road is a diagnostics system specially designed for off-road applications based on the scientific interpretation of used oil analysis data. This LubAnac Off-Road oil analysis kit allows fleet managers to reduce the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of their vehicle / machine park.

 

LubAnac Off-Road is specially recommended for:

  • Systematical follow–up of wear in driveline components such as engines, transmissions and hydraulic systems of all loaders, dumpers, shovels, cranes, gen-sets and other construction equipment equipped or not with gas engines or functioning with specific (bio)fuels.
  • Severe working conditions at high load and in all climatic conditions, by checking the presence of larger wear particles in the lubricant.
  • Check of lubricant contamination due to external working factors.
  • Prevention of downtime and improved use of the fleet in all safety.
  • Hydraulic oil performance and condition by measuring acidity and viscosity.
  • Determination of presence of mineral oil in biodegradable hydraulic oils (when providing a sample of the fresh oil)
  • Preventive maintenance, hence reduction of cost price per hour.
  • Decrease of the fuel consumption by Fuel Economy control and detection of potential fuel dilution.

MEASURED CHARACTERISTICS

 

Mechanical wear:

Emission spectrometry (ICP) of elements: Fe, Pb, Cu, Sn, Cr, Al, Ni (ppmc)

Ferrous Debris Monitor: Measurement of large iron particles (Fe) for all non-engine components (gearbox, transfer case, differentials, rotation/translation gears, final drives…)

 

Oil contamination:

Silicium (ppm), Water (%) for all applications.

Soot (%), Cooling liquid (ppm), Fuel (%), Copper passivation for engine oil analysis

Characteristics of the lubricant:

Kinematic viscosity (mm²/s) at 100°C, Oxidation (IR).

Kinematic viscosity(mm²/s) at 40 °C and Acid Number on hydraulic applications.

 

Optional:

Additive elements Ca, Zn, P, Mg, Mo, Ba, V, Na, B, Ag.

Calculated sulphated ash (%).

 

DIAGNOSIS AND COMMENTS

 

The LubAnac reports are generated by the LubAnac knowledge base using:

  • The LubAnac CAPS (Customer Assisted Prognosis System) database with feedback from interventions.
  • The LubAnac algorithms, taking into account severe working conditions in mining and construction thus focusing on the life time of the components and the oil.
  • The LubAnac database with reference data of all current part types, calculated on more than 8,5 million performed analyses.

THE LUBANAC DIAGNOSIS REPORT

 

The LubAnac diagnosis is sent per e-mail, and can be consulted through a secured connection on the Internet.
