New Oil Analysis Handbook from Spectro Scientific Includes Applications and Case Studies for Machine Condition Monitoring and Maintenance

Spectro Scientific, a leading developer and manufacturer of analytical tools and software for fluid and machine condition monitoring, has released a new, comprehensive Oil Analysis Handbook.

The 106-page, fully illustrated publication provides an introduction to oil analysis and oil sampling best practices, outlines methods and benefits of route-based oil analysis, and explains how oil analysis enables detection of lubricant mix-ups.

The handbook reviews and evaluates various fluid analysis methods including RDE and infrared spectroscopy, particle analysis, and viscometer techniques. Spectro’s advanced developments of those technologies, namely Laser Net Fines® particle analyzers, SpectroVISC portable viscometers, and Fluid Scan® portable infrared spectrometers are described in detail. Case studies involving railway, marine and industrial applications present practical examples of oil analysis in action.

In-service analyses regarding contamination, chemical content and viscosity of lubricant, fuel and other key fluids provide early warnings of aberrant conditions and enable scheduling of maintenance before machine failure occurs.

Benefits include higher equipment availability and productivity, lower maintenance costs, lower total cost of ownership, fewer outages, optimal equipment performance and greener operation.
