Analyzer detects most lubricant-related problems

The 5200 Trivector analyzer is a multifunctional device that detects most lubricant-related problems in gears, pumps, compressors, engines, and more. Analyzer measures chemistry changes by comparing the dielectric of new and used oil samples. It provides coverage of three critical areas of industrial oil analysis-oil chemistry, system contamination, and machine wear-and uses a patented method of preparing wear debris analysis filter patches.
