Soot Levels in Diesel Engine Oils, Portable Meter
The Portable Soot Meter is a
hand-held, battery operated diagnostic tool that measures soot
concentration levels in diesel engine lubricating oil up to 10% and
higher – without sample preparation or solvents. It has been
specifically designed for fleet operators, transit authorities, service
stations, construction sites, preventative maintenance personnel, or
anyone that needs easy, on-site soot measurements to enable them to
know exactly when to change the lubricating oil. It is based on the
same field-proven infrared technology that is utilized in the K25500
Soot Meter. Measurement results are shown on digital display in less
than one minute. Wipe the sensor clean with absorbent paper towel, and
the unit is ready to apply the next used oil sample. The Portable Soot
Meter weighs less than 2 lbs. and is powered by four replaceable
“AA” batteries providing power for approximately
1000 tests. It is factory calibrated to measure soot levels as high as
10% or higher with an accuracy of within 0.5%.
A laboratory model soot meter is also available (K25500).
