The MPC Color instrument allows real time on-site determination of the condition of your lubricant. Data results are captured and stored in text and audio captions for quick analysis. The MPC Color packs tremendous science into a convenient and extremely accurate package.
MPC is the only ASTM method for determining Varnish Potential
ASTM D7843: Standard Test Method for Measurement of Lubricant Generated Insoluble Color Bodies in In-Service Turbine Oils using Membrane Patch Colorimetry.
Lubricating oils used in applications such as compressors, turbines and hydraulic systems are prone to reliability and performance problems due to oil deposits like sludge and varnish. MPC test is designed to separate oil degradation products and measure their color. This indicates the likeliness of deposits causing performance problems in your system.
Tremendous Innovation packed into an unassuming package Some of the features of the MPC Color include:
A surface preview capability with built-in calibration tile
Produces results in 1.8 seconds
Enough memory to store data for up to 350 samples and 20 standards
Connects to your PC via USB connection for ease of data transfer and charging
Reports color values in CIE, the same scale used in ASTM D7843
