An average lab oil analysis may cost up to $50 to $60 per test, and more than 2 to 3 weeks waiting time until the results are returned. The new “on-site” Instant Oil Analysis Kit offers a fast and cost-saving alternative at a fraction of the cost of a conventional oil analysis. Simply apply a few drops of oil, using a dipstick, to the test sheet and results appear in a matter of a few seconds, at less than $1 per test.
Using the supplied chromatographic color chart, you may diagnose the oil quality for particle contaminants, depletion of fluid additives, soot content, sludge and varnish, and indication of water fuel, or glycol antifreeze dilution.
Developed by a chemical engineer with more than 30 years of lab experience, the Instant Oil Analysis test sheet uses test media up to 2 micron, offering instant results on gas, diesel, transmission, brake, steering, or any fluid, anytime, anyplace. No tools required and anyone can test their equipment.
Fumoto Engineering also offers an Engine Oil Drain Valve for quick, clean and easy oil changes without tools. This is ideal for drawing a small sample of oil for instant oil analysis.
