Basic DALOC Services
Real-time oil consumption testing is performed with the test engine being coupled to an engine dynamometer in a test cell suited for Da Vinci Lubricant Oil Consumption (DALOC) testing. These procedures can be conducted directly onsite at the customers engine testing facility.
The most basic projects call for a 25-point mapping of the total engine oil consumption. The customer receives visual and tabular representation of the average oil consumption achieved for 25 different engine speed and load points, as well as the real-time traces of oil consumption achieved for each of these points. An example of such a basic test is shown in our Sample Data section.
The duration for the most basic project varies from 2 to 3 weeks. This data highlights if an engine has an oil consumption issue.
