Application Note: Accurate Fuel Dilution in the Field Using the Q6000 FDM: A Comparison to Gas Chromatography

Introduction Fuel contamination in a lubricant is one of the most important lubricant failure modes in internal combustion engines. The presence of fuel reduces the oil viscosity which decreases the load carrying ability of the lubricant. Unchecked fuel dilution issues in a lubricant can lead to severe wear to bearings, gears, and pistons. Other ...
