Lube Oil Conditioning System

Lube oil temperature and pressure have a significant influence, especially on the friction behavior, resulting in deviations of BSFC and emissions. To increase test cell efficiency, the conditions of the lubrication oil have to be controlled exactly.

The lube oil conditioning system STS LubCon performs this function automatically by controlling the lube oil temperature and pressure independently of engine operating conditions. Due to the system design, oil quality is not affected during the heating process. The control and regulation of the system is performed by an on-board controller mounted in the control cabinet.


  • Stable experimental conditions reduce test cell time
  • Wall mounted or stand-alone design allows flexible adaptation to different testing purposes
  • Intermediate circuit avoids oil cracking during heating
  • Simple operation
  • Low maintenance
  • Wide range of applications
