"We have an OilExpress 4 to handle samples for our FTIR. We have the small deck, so in order to use both Janus racks, you must disable the sonar auto-depth feature, as it only covers one rack of the samples. The software is a bit slow to respond and does not allow for non-sequential sample processing. The instrument also tends to drift significantly over time, and can be temperamental in nature. Our system can function as a diluter, however only being a two deck system, it does not make sense to utilize it as both a diluter and autosampler. After-sale service, is ok, but often the fixes only last a short time, so we are left with workaround solutions. Consumables are a bit on the expensive side, with the tips being one-time use, it greatly increases the per-sample cost compared to other systems. If you want to use the sonar function, you must also use very specific test tubes in order to not interfere with the sonar pulse."Review date:

High-throughput oil analysis has never been easier, more reliable or more cost effective. Confidence in results is guaranteed by the OilExpress 4™ outstanding performance and robust, reliable design. The OilExpress 4 system adapts to your laboratory’s needs, from dozens to thousands of samples per day providing oil analysis even for highly viscous samples such as gear oils and turbine packages. Our OilPrep™ oil dilution system can be upgraded to an OilExpress 4 FT-IR analysis system, or vice versa, so you get more for less. Alternatively, you can purchase the system with both OilPrep and FT-IR modules.
OilExpress 4 delivers:
• Increased sample throughput – up to 100 samples analyzed per hour with OilExpress 4 DUO. Up to 96 4 oz bottles, or up to 384 17 mm tubes in a single unattended batch run on OilExpress 4 XL system. • Significant savings from decreased solvent waste- thanks to the intelligent adaptive cleaning system 80% or higher reduction in solvent and waste volumes compared with comparative systems.
• A modular design makes it possible to scale up your sample throughput or separately utilize the oil dilution capabilities in busy laboratories that are using ICP analysis- simply upgrade the OilExpress 4 system to grow with your needs rather than purchasing additional instruments.
• Rapid, reliable oil condition monitoring results using recognized industry standard protocols such as ASTM®, JOAP and Caterpillar® S•O•S™™.
