Version 8 SpectrOil® Analyzers Include a New Spectrometer for Increased Stability and Lower Limits of Detection for Enhanced Fuel Quality Analysis
Spectro Scientific, one of the world's largest suppliers of oil, fuel,
and processed water analysis instrumentation and software, has
introduced Version 8 of its SpectrOil® Series analyzers. The
new capabilities are included in both the SpectrOil
100 Series and SpectrOil
M Series for the elemental analysis of oil, fuel, coolant and water.
SpectrOil technology measures trace quantities of elements dissolved or
suspended as fine particles in natural or synthetic petroleum-based
products. Oil analysis represents a non-invasive indication of component
and overall machinery health, and thereby is an essential tool in
ongoing maintenance programs.

The SpectrOil Series Version 8 offers both stability improvements and an
enhanced user experience. New signal processing methods improve short-
and long-term stability. A fully integrated standardization procedure
facilitates calibration and standardization, resulting in easier, faster
operation. An improved background measurement method offers lower limits
of detection (LODs) in field applications and includes temperature and
background measurement corrections that eliminate re-standardization.
Signal processing also is improved for field applications involving
SpectrOil Version 8 refines the user experience with better tools for
remote support, including automatic identification of files that should
be sent to Spectro for support. Also, Integrated standardization
combines Profile, Disc Offset and standardization procedures into a
simple, one-button operation.
The significant performance improvement in Version 8 enabled a new
spectrometer for fuel analysis, the SpectrOil M/F-LD. The M/F-LD
analyzer supports No. 2 Diesel and extends the limits of detection
(LODs) even further for alkaline metals such as lithium (Li), sodium
(Na), potassium (K) and vanadium (V) to below 100 parts per billion
(ppb). This is a critical need for turbine OEMs that must meet fuel
Spectro Scientific's SpectrOil 100 Series and SpectrOil M Series
analyzers utilize the time-tested and reliable rotating disc electrode
(RDE) technique for precisely determining elemental composition in
critical operating fluids. For decades RDE has been used as both a
quality control tool and a machine health monitor. SpectrOil software
includes an interface to Spectro Scientific's MiniLab 153 comprehensive
oil analyzer for industrial machinery.
Spectro president and CEO Brian Mitchell said, "Precision and ease of
use are key factors in fast, reliable analysis processes. SpectrOil
Version 8 represents another way for our customers to maximize their
efficiency and competitiveness."
