Microscopes for Oil Patch Testing

Pseudo Incident Light Microscope

Advantages

  • Portable
  • Light weight
  • In expensive

Disadvantages

  • Off centre light source can cast shadows
  • More components
  • More fiddly

Standard configuration

Our E5 microscope is the standard microscope base for this application. We add a multi-port USB power supply to power two LED light sources on goosenecks. This allows the operator to position the light as required and have the lowest footprint as possible.

Options

A smaller E30 model can be supplied, however the stage isn’t big enough to allow for traversing a standard petrie dish in both directions.

A camera and c-mount adaptor is strongly recommended, and our entry level GT2 or GT5 cameras are ideal.

If required as a part of a complete patching testing kit, we recommend talking to Clean Lube Solutions
