Oil Analyzer Performs in the Lab or in the Field
Spectro Inc. has introduced the
Spectroil Q100 oil analysis spectrometer,
an analytical instrument that
detects and quantifies metals in used
(in-service) oils and hydraulic fluids
that are indicative of an abnormal condition.
The Spectroil Q100 is intended
to help predict mechanical failures in
their early stages so corrective action
can be taken, and is designed to work
equally well in the laboratory or in the
field, under less than ideal conditions.
According to the company, the
Spectroil Q100 is well suited for inservice
oil analysis because technology
has made it smaller and the addition of
an innovative CCD optical system has
made it more flexible for even the most
exotic in-service oil analysis applications.
The standard configuration is set
up to analyze 22 wear metals, contaminants
and additives in 30 seconds.
Additional elements can be added at
any time, even in the field if an application
suddenly calls for unusual elements.
The Spectroil Q100 also fulfills
the requirements of ASTM D6595
Standard Method for Determination of
Wear Metals and Contaminants in Used
Lubricating Oils or Hydraulic Fluids by
Rotating Disc Electrode Atomic
