Engineered to expedite machine condition monitoring and quality control evaluations, SpectrOil 100 Series elemental spectrometers provide quick, laboratory-precise measurement of elemental concentrations in a variety of fluid types. The ease of operation makes them ideal for use in laboratories, on-site inspection and maintenance environments, where rapid test results create value.

The SpectrOil 100 Series eliminates the delay and expense of off-site laboratory analyses and minimal training is needed to operate the system. The analysis process involves no sample preparation or use of solvents or gasses, reducing cost per sample, and the spectrometers’ 30-second analysis time provides immediate, simultaneous multi-element results.

The spectrometers consist of two basic models: The SpectrOil 110, which provides a basic engine wear package, and the SpectrOil 120, which includes standard and extended range packages with the following options: wear metals, coolants, fuels and custom application packages.

The SpectrOil 100 Series uses Rotating Disc Electrode, Optical Emission Spectroscopy (RDE-OES) technology, a product of decades of development in support of the U.S. Military’s Joint Oil Analysis Program (JOAP). The method employs carbon electrodes and high voltage electricity to convert a fluid sample into a plasma that emits a unique spectrum of light. CCD cameras capture the light and spectral analysis software detects concentration of dozens of elements in solution with sub-ppm precision including particles as large as 10µm.

SpectrOil 100 Series spectrometers detect and quantify the presence of elements that indicate machine wear or fluid contamination, while also monitoring depletion of additives that protect critical assets, according to ASTM-D6595 (oil). In quality control applications, the analyses monitor the composition and quality of petrochemicals from the crude state to final blended product to ensure process integrity and guard against contamination, in line with ASTM D6728 (fuel). Fluid analysis of coolants will ensure they are still providing heat transfer and corrosion protection, while analysis of power plant cooling water and turbine wash water determines if their condition is within regulatory limits.

Spectro Scientific Vice President, Business Development Robert Wopperer said, “The new SpectrOil 100 Series expands the Spectro Scientific product line and increases performance, enabling users to perform rapid and accurate fluid analyses in their own facilities, in the most time and cost efficient way. The SpectrOil Series products reduce the complexity of testing lubrication oils and performance fluids, helping our customers better protect their valuable mechanical assets.”
