Oil analysis can be used to identify the root causes of corrosion and obtain early indications of equipment wear. With on-site oil analysis, the wait time associated with sending samples off-site can be eliminated, enabling immediate decision making.
The MiniLab 53 uses three simple tests to deliver comprehensive on-site oil analysis, saving time, reducing costs, and delivering immediate actionable results. The highlights of this system include:
- Simple workflow for non-expert users, no chemist required
- A single product, offering lab-quality analysis outside of the lab
- Simple data handling and report interpretation through Trivector and OilView reporting
Trivector™ – Oil and Machine Health Simplified
The TriVector™ is a simple representation of the integrity of the lubrication system as well as the health of the machine. The degree of health in each vector is indicated by the Trivector. The key physical and chemical parameters of the oil must be measured to understand the Trivector condition.
The following questions can be answered:

- Particle Count and Ferrous
- Chemical Analysis
OilView™ LIMS Asset Management Software
The AMS OilView LIMS module is used to operate the MiniLab. The OilView software is equipped with an Asset Management database and a reference oil database that can be expanded by the end user.
The software provides several standard and configurable report formats with automatic email distribution of reports as well as alarm limit templates and analytics.
The Trivector identifies parameters that are outside normal limits and provides a clear snapshot of machinery health in color-coded Trivector reports.
The MiniLab 53 is ideal for a wide range of industries such as:
- Pulp and Paper
- Power Generation
- Metals Processing
- Industrial Manufacturing
Typical Limits for Machinery
The following table shows the most common oil analysis tests and the typical alarm limits for several component types. Component manufacturers set alarm limits for their equipment for specified parameters.
