Spectroil 100 Series Elemental Analyzer for Lube Oils is successfully installed and set to go for Railway’s predictive maintenance operations. Spectroil 100 Series RDE-OES Systems require no sample preparation and only require 2 ml of oil for the analysis. Only in 30 seconds of analysis time, sub-ppm level detection of up to 31 elements are gathered with only push of a button conforming to ASTM D6595 and JOAP (Joint Oil Analysis Program) norms.
Spectroil RDE-OES Systems can detect:
- Wear Metals: Al, Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe, Pb, Mg, Mn, Mo, Ni, Ag, Sn, Ti, V, Zn
- Contaminants: B, Ca, K, Si, Na
- Additives: Ba, B, Ca, Cr, Cu, Mg, Mo, P, Si, Zn
An additional 13 elements (Sb, Bi, As, In, Co, Zr, W, Sr, Li, Ce, Nb and Rh) can be added at anytime without the need for hardware upgrades.
Spectroil Elemental Analyzers deliver an early warning of abnormal wear and provides elemental information which can be used to determine the source of the problem depending on the metallurgy of the components in the machinery. Contamination issues such as coolant leaks, sea water contamination, ingested dirt, etc. are also identified as well as the change in additive concentrations due to fluid mix-up, dilution, or contamination.
