The Schroeder Pro: Total Fluid Health instrument aids in the gathering of real-time fluid condition information to help technicians make informed maintenance decisions. It helps accomplish this by measuring various fluid contamination variables in real-time that reflect a fluid’s condition without having to be permanently installed. Portable fluid condition monitoring can be useful in a variety of applications for gauging contamination sources that include abrasive wear, corrosion, damage to dynamic seals, and oxidation.
The Schroeder Pro: Total Fluid Health is billed as a revolutionary portable service unit, designed to measure and differentiate particulate contamination, as well as determine oil life, relative water content, and temperature. This real-time insight into the health of synthetic, organic, and mineral oils, as well as diesel fuel, helps users make informed decisions with regard to fluid replacement and treatment planning.
