The KYTOLA® OILCOL Oil Color Analyzer is an online instrument based on visible light absorbance (transmittance) to indicate the ASTM D1500 color value of oil.

As the measurement is performed online, the response is continuous and fast, which can be crucial in order to detect sudden changes in oil quality and further to be able to react before any failures of the oilusing equipment occur. Timeconsuming and expensive sampling and laboratory analyses are also avoided.
