Using the radio tracer method, KST performs oil consumption and oil dilution measurements and optimizes the regeneration cycles of the diesel particulate filter.
The radio tracer method provides measurements in real time and at high resolution:
Resolution of the oil consumption measurement: > 1 mg/h
Resolution of the oil dilution measurement: > 0.01 %/h
Note: Because the tracer is stored in oil molecules the oil is contaminated at first. Due to the short half life, the test specimen is uncontaminated after the test is done and can be used again immediately.
