Portable Oil Diagnostic Sampler (PODS)

The PODS is an intelligent, portable and robust analysis instrument for measuring, storing, and reporting oil condition parameters important for reliable hydraulic systems operation. The PODS monitors oil contamination in the field and provides immediate information concerning the health of the machine under operating conditions, opposed to oil samples analyzed in laboratories, typically taking weeks before they are available, while not reflecting the condition of the oil under operating conditions. Additionally, the PODS provides the means to analyze fluids and lubricants in an online or bottle sampling mode without interrupting operation of the machine. Sample data can be downloaded, stored and managed with PODSWare data analysis software.
