PerkinElmer OilExpress 4 Oil Condition Monitoring System

High-throughput oil analysis has never been easier, more reliable or more cost-effective than now, with OilExpress™ 4.

Lubrication is a vital component of machinery and, as with any component, early detection of wear is essential for timely replacement, avoiding unnecessary maintenance while reducing the risk of catastrophic breakdowns. Infared (IR) analysis is a rapid, inexpensive test that can provide specific information about the chemical condition of the oil, also allowing inferences about the state of the machine component from which the sample was taken.

PerkinElmer’s OilExpress™ 4 leverages proven IR technology and delivers highly automated, rapid, reliable oil condition monitoring results using recognized industry standard protocols such as ASTM®, JOAP and Caterpillar® S·O·SSM. The system’s smart design maximises laboratory productivity while dramatically reducing solvent use and waste generation - a single analysis now requires just 3 mL of cleaning solvent and 750 μL of sample. With a full suite of instrumentation, consumables, training, and service, our combined oil monitoring package is designed to support every key aspect of your oil analysis program.

As a world leader in lubricant analysis since 1962, PerkinElmer is not only an industry expert, but a partner you can trust. Over 10 million samples are analysed every year using PerkinElmer’s OilExpress equipment, and our extensive experience in lubricant analysis has been developed through strong partnerships with world leaders in lubricant analysis, including Caterpillar® and ExxonMobil™. This knowledge and expertise has been distilled into the latest high performance oil conditioning monitoring solution, OilExpress 4.

The OilExpress 4 system adapts to your laboratory’s needs, from dozens to thousands of samples per day. Its modular design makes it possible to scale up your sample throughput or separately utilise the oil dilution capabilities in busy laboratories that are using ICP analysis. The system minimises your operational costs by reducing instrument downtime, increasing throughput to reduce cost per sample, and offering significant savings from decreased solvent waste.

Plus, by upgrading OilExpress 4 units instead of purchasing multiple instruments, laboratory throughput can be increased while optimising capital expenditure. For example, our OilPrep™ oil dilution system can be upgraded to an OilExpress 4 FT-IR analysis system, or vice versa, so you get more for less. Alternatively, you can purchase the system with both OilPrep and FT-IR modules. This flexibility not only diminishes the cost of ownership, but also means your investment is protected.
