Advanced's test kit means end of compressor failure

Advanced Engineering claims its new oil testing kit could mean the end of compressor failure.

Called CENT and developed by lubricants company FUCHS, the kit enables engineers to submit samples for spectrometry and inductively-coupled plasma analysis, among other tests, for a view of component wear, contamination levels and oil condition in any system.

The resulting report, which includes analysis of up to 30 different tell-tale variables, features user-friendly diagnostics and simple ‘traffic light’ interpretation.

Using the information, engineers are able to take preventative action before small issues develop into an expensive breakdown.

Sales Director Vern Klien, said: “Given the huge expense and hassle that a sudden compressor failure causes – not to mention lost working time, spoiled stock and other knock-on effects – performing an inexpensive system health check is a sensible cost-effective precaution.”

The CENT analysis results can be delivered digitally –either by email or secure web login – within seconds of test completion, allowing completion within a matter of days.
