M8GASENSE, LUB360, BATTASENSE: A growing Family of high performance measurement instruments by Lubrisense


M8GASENSE: Downstream AI algorithms detect additional components in the gas composition that provide important information for developers.  The focus here is particularly on particles in the exhaust gas, polycyclic aromatic components (PAH) and further non-limited components. 


BATTASENSE: Optimized for use on battery test benches. Abuse testing of batteries provides important information on fault susceptibility, durability and extreme behavior in the event of system failure. Battasense determines at high time resolution which gases are emitted from the battery at which point in the decomposition process. The substances are identified and their intensity is measured over time.



LUB360: Started as pure oil emission measuring instruments, we have consistently developed our technologies further. The fields of application have been extended for further fields of application around the powertrain development.  

The Lubrisense LUB360 is a best seller. The 3rd generation Lubrisense offers more options to examine oil consumption of combustion engines in detail. Our entire experience has gone into the development of this revolutionary measurement system.
Strategic Partnership

Together with our new partners we were able to take significant steps towards future. With the LUB360 we can now offer a product that  prepares our customers for upcoming challenge

Our partner PerkinElmer, has developed a new revolutionary mass spectrometer from scratch, the iQT. It represents a true innovation by combining a number of completely new technologies: The ion source can be operated either in CI, EI and Cold EI mode. A quadrupole is used for the Lubrisense high-pass-mass-filtering and a time-of-flight unit separates the ions according to size. The detector registers the ions with an extremely high dynamic range.


In the same time a single value was obtained before, the TOF unit of the mass spectrometer is able to deliver a complete mass spectrum. A coupled classifier detects specific ion patterns. It differentiates between evaporated oil and the oil emitted by droplets. In addition to the evaporated oil, the LUB360 specially designed inlet is able to collect and evaporate oil droplets over a wide diameter range and guides them to the ion source of the mass spectrometer.


All electronics in this system are built as self diagnosing smart modules. They are connected together with the Lubrisense modules on one bus system and are monitored and controlled via the software. The Lubrisense app runs on a standard tablet computer and allows the user to remote control the LUB360. The USB connection enables a broad spectrum of measurement computers, from high-performance workstation to a small notebook everything can be used.



The determination of the oil emission could only be done because we invented a calibration system for it. Based on a high-precision piezo metering valve, a system has been developed that can inject the smallest amounts of low-volatile substances into a defined purge gas stream. With highest reproducibility and high linearity low concentrations are generated in the gas phase.
