FDM Q6000


The 6000 Fuel Dilution Meter (FDM) is a portable fuel dilution meter that can be used in the laboratory or in the field to provide rapid and accurate measurements of fuel contamination in engine oil. The headspace vapor sampling approach also eliminates the need to heat fuel-laden samples and does not require the use of solvents. Developed in collaboration with the U.S. Navy, the 6000 detects contamination in less than two minutes, allowing operators to make immediate decisions. The device requires just a small sample size in a disposable vial. The analysis results are displayed in percent fuel so operators can make rapid decisions about maintenance actions. In addition, the intuitive touchscreen and audio prompts guide the operator through the testing process.
