Ptk1 Oil Analysis Patch Kit

The Ptk1 Oil Analysis Patch Kit is a valuable tool for visually analysing contamination levels and contaminate types in hydraulic and lubrication systems in the field when you need results immediately.

Monitoring fluid cleanliness in hydraulic and lubrication systems is a common practice. When the pressure is on waiting weeks for bottle samples from an independent lab might not be an option. Oil analysis practices vary from lab to lab and once the sample is shipped off you no longer have control of the sample or how it is processed.

With PTK-1 oil cleanliness can be visually analysed in the field without waiting for lab results and losing control of the analysing process. The PTK-1 kit provides the opportunity to see the type, concentration, and actual size of particulate contamination inside the system. The kit includes reference photos so that the patch sample can be correlated to an approximate ISO Fluid Cleanliness Code. When used in conjunction with the PC4000 or PODS on-line particle counting equipment exact fluid cleanliness and visual analysis are at your fingertips.

The PTK-1 Kit Includes:

  • 100x magnification field microscope
  • 1.2 m filter test patches
  • Funnel assembly with ml fill line for accuracy
  • Vacuum pump to extract fluid samples from the system and process 25m1 sample through filter patch
  • Sample bottles
  • Forceps for filter patch handling
  • Solvent dispenser with dispensing filters
  • Instruction manual
  • Visual correlation chart to determine approximate ISO Cleanliness Code of patch test kit sample
  • Visual correlation chart to determine type of particles captured on the patch
  • Patch mounting cards and adhesive covers to protect samples from ambient contamination and to preserve samples for future reference
