The 5200 Trivector Analyzer is a
multi-functional analyzer that is
uniquely able to detect most
lubricant related problems in
gears, pumps, compressors,
turbines, engines, hydraulics, and
process machinery.
The Trivector Analyzer measures
chemistry changes by comparing
the dielectric of new and used oil
samples. It improves on
Emerson’s patented method of
ferrous/non-ferrous separation
through increased sensitivity to
small particles. The 5200 adds
laser particle counting with a
patent pending method of
delivering sample fluid that
decreases the chances of
missing larger particles as they
settle. Wear debris analysis is
made faster and easier with the
ability to isolate ferrous, non-
ferrous, large and small particles
onto separate filter patches
The Trivector Analyzer’s multiple
testing functions are controlled by
buttons and a valve on the face of
the instrument and software
loaded onto a desktop PC. The
user is prompted by color coded
LED’s and onscreen instructions
each step of the way through the
test sequence. This effectively
eliminates any possibility of
skipping a step. The test
sequence takes about eight
minutes. At the end of each test,
the fluid is neatly pulled into a
waste container by a vacuum
pump and the computer records
the data.

A suitable solvent must be
obtained for dilution and cleaning
purposes. Extra pure lamp oil
(basically clean low-odor
kerosene) is inexpensive, widely
available, and works well for most
samples. Heptane or hexane is
recommended for use when
making filter patches, but mineral
spirits may also be used.
Isopropyl alcohol may be added to
any of these to help deal with
water contamination for test '3'
and for making filter patches
