Chevron and Noria Corporation recently released its new Isoclean calculator, which is the first tool to assess equipment life by using levels of lubricant cleanliness as a guide.
The Isoclean tool was created by multinational energy company Chevron, but it is powered thanks to Noria’s life-extension tables, which can be used to evaluate particle contamination levels that fall around the average for every user’s own situation.
Speaking about the powerful new tool, which will give companies more control over their lubricant cleanliness levels and equipment life, Noria’s president, Mike Ramsey, said:
“We have worked closely with Chevron to create a tool that will leverage the comprehensive cleanliness database of our life-extension tables but in an easy-to-use format that is very intuitive and simple. We have found most users have no idea how contaminated their lubricants really are and how harmful this can be to their equipment. This resource is a great way to easily calculate cleanliness levels so customers can take action and help maximize their equipment life.”
Contaminant particles are responsible for more lubricant-oriented failures than any other factor, so this new calculator will enable users to understand the unique challenges they face, so that they can increase efficiency and run equipment in a more advantageous way. This is regardless of whether they are using a generic lubricant, or one of the higher quality formulas, such as Fuchs Ecocool Ultralife A, Mobilgear 600 XP 68 or Q8 Dynobear 32, which are amongst the top performing lubricants currently on the market.
