Measuring the lubricating oil foam is used to measure the physical properties of the foam stability of lubricants. Lubricant tendency to produce a foam on its use in mechanical systems can be a problem because of the loss of lubrication properties and maintenance costs as a consequence. Foaminess measurement system is expected to have an advantage in terms of ease of foam high readings for the analysis of foam stability. In this paper, digital image segmentation method is used for the measurement of foaming at the foam stability of lubricating products. Segmentation techniques applied to extract the image to get the height of the foam in a glass tube using the camera. Foam stability related to the height of foam produced during a certain time period necessary to disappear at a certain temperature. In the experiment, a series of measurements on three types of lubricant products using comparative analysis in order to compare their foam stability objectively. The results showed that the instrument system based on the image segmentation that has been developed capable of measuring the foam stability of lubricants.
