The OilExpress 4 system adapts to your laboratory’s needs, from dozens to thousands of samples per day. Its modular design makes it possible to scale up your sample throughput or separately utilize the oil dilution capabilities in busy laboratories that are using ICP analysis. The system minimizes your operational costs by reducing instrument downtime, increasing throughput to reduce cost per sample, and offering significant savings from decreased solvent waste.
Oil inevitably degrades with use and is exposed to various sources of contamination. The benefits of oil condition monitoring can be further increased by complementing routine measurements at a centralized laboratory with more rapid on-site analysis using a portable analyzer. This article reviews infrared oil condition monitoring and describes the design considerations for an on-site oil analyzer, the In-Service Lubricants FT-IR Analysis System from PerkinElmer.
The OilPrep 4 oil diluter automatically dilutes oil samples with kerosene, in preparation for wear metals analysis by inductively coupled plasma (ICP), such as with the PerkinElmer Optima ICP-OES.
FT-IR analysis has become an increasingly important tool for in-service lubricants analysis, and is now widely deployed in a range of environments from high-throughput labs using the OilExpress autosampling system through to smaller field labs and on-site installations using the Spectrum Two In-Service Lubricants FT-IR Analysis System based on the revolutionary Spectrum Two instrument.
Lubricant failure due to oxidation and nitration can be detrimental to machinery’s performance, while contamination by water, fuel or glycol can provide an early warning of mechanical problems before catastrophic damage occurs. Spectrum Two™ from PerkinElmer offers trouble-free analysis of in-service lubricants.
