SpectrOil 100 – The Next Generation of Oil Analysis Spectrometers

Introduction For almost 30 years, Spectro Scientific has specialised in the development of instruments for machine condition monitoring based on oil and fuel analysis. Spectro’s sole focus has been to design and market instruments optimised for one application, rather than general purpose instruments that can be used for a variety of applications. All SpectrOils are user-friendly and reliable; they are the workhorses of commercial and military oil analysis laboratories that require the rapid analysis of wear metals, contaminants and additives in lubricants. SpectrOils measure trace quantities of elements dissolved or suspended as fine particles in natural or synthetic petroleum-based products…

SpectroFluidscan 1000 Handheld Lubricant Condition Monitor

SpectroFluidscan Q1000 was made possible due to years of experience and extensive research and development based on the customer’s need to have an on-site lubricant analysis capability. FluidScan represents the state-of-the-art in infrared technology and can be used to quickly check the condition of lubricants such as hydraulic fluids, engine oils, turbine oils and gear oils for degradation and the presence of contaminants. The Spectro Fluidscan Q1000 is a handheld condition-based maintenance monitor that protects machinery by determining when a lubricant needs to be changed due to excessive contamination or degradation. Its detection capabilities can determine lubrication contamination, degradation and…

Spectro LNF 200 Series

Application • Machine condition-based monitoring Description • particle counter • wear particle classifier • ferrous monitor The Spectro LNF Q200 series features LaserNetFines™, the world’s best particle counter technology. With an intuitive, configurable GUI and no calibration required, the Q200 series is fast, accurate and easy to use. Sample preparation is efficient with the LNF. Viscosities up to 320cSt can be processed without dilution due to the wide dynamic range. And unlike conventional light blockage particle counters, there are no flow control valves that need adjusting when testing different sample viscosities. The advanced design makes it much more than just…

SpectroT2FM Q500 Analytical Ferrography Laboratory

Application • Machine condition based monitoring Description The SpectroT2FM Q500 Analytical Ferrography Laboratory is a complete analytical system for the separation and interpretation of wear and contaminant particles in used lubricant oils, hydraulic fluids, coolants and fuels. It consists of the T2FM Ferrogram maker, a bichromatic microscope, video camera and image capture software. The SpectroT2FM Q500 is fast because there is no delay time as sample is pumped through plastic tubing before reaching the ferrogram surface. The T2FM delivers the entire sample and all the particles contained therein onto the ferrogram surface. A crystal clear rinse is obtained without fail…

SpectroVisc 3000 Series Portable Kinematic Viscometers

The devices are designed to determine kinematic viscosity in the field for applications where immediate results are essential for determining the health of critical equipment. SpectroVisc Q3000 viscometers use a patented split cell design that enables measurement of kinematic viscosity using only a few drops (60µL) of oil. Application: The SpectroVisc Q3000 series viscometers are portable, solvent-free, temperature-controlled kinematic viscometers, providing high-accuracy measurements for easy detection of viscosity variations caused by contamination, mix-up and oil degradation.
