ON-SITE OIL ANALYSIS
SYSTEM FOR INDUSTRIAL MACHINERY
Oil analysis provides early indications of equipment wear and identifies the root causes of corrosion. On-site oil analysis eliminates the wait associated with sending samples off-site and enables immediate decision making.
With two simple tests, the MiniLab 23 delivers on-site oil analysis, providing immediate actionable results, saving time and reducing costs. Highlights of this system include:
- One product, delivering lab-quality analysis outside of the lab
- Simplified workflow for the non-expert user, no chemist required
- Simplified operation, data reporting and report interpretation via the TruVu 360 Diagnostic Sets with recommended actions.
The MiniLab 23 provides oil condition information including viscosity, chemistry and water in oil. This capability is the foundation of an oil analysis program.

TruVu 360 Enterprise Fluid Intelligence
The Minilab 23 uses the TruVu 360 Enterprise Fluid Intelligence software which includes an Asset Management database and a reference oil database which can be expanded by the end user.
It provides a standard sample trend reports and Diagnostic Sets with alarm limit templates, diagnostics, and recommended actions. It can support automatic email distribution of reports.
The MiniLab 23 is ideal for a wide range of industries such as:
