lubricating oil Applications

  • Lubricating oils for oil & gas industry

    Lubricating oils contain chemical additives that give the oil a greater in-service life. These additives contain a range of elements such as Calcium, Zinc, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Chlorine, Molybdenum etc whose concentration need to be measured as part of a quality control/assurance system to demonstrate conformance to specification.

    Machine condition monitoring for lubricant & additive manufacturers

    Overview

    Many large oil companies are Spectro Scientific customers because they employ oil analysis not only to monitor their own equipment in refineries, tankers, and pipelines, but they monitor their own blended lubricant products and also frequently provide oil analysis services to customers who buy their lubricants. Many industrial and transportation companies receive oil analysis services from their lubricant supplier.

    Precision moisture analysis instruments for moisture testing for in-service lubricants

    A Chemical-Free Alternative to Karl Fischer. Accurate control of moisture in lubricating oils is critical to keeping your most important machines in optimal condition, but historically there have been few good options for  measuring moisture content. The “crackle test” is easy, but not accurate enough to keep modern machines running at their best. Karl Fischer titration is very accurate, but difficult to use, expensive to operate, and requires hazardous chemical reagents.

  • Depuration of oil and emulsion mists

    In machine shops, where the production is centered on the use of machine tools, one of the most common problems is the restoration intervention aimed at limiting the presence of oil or emulsion fogs. As a matter of fact, since machine tools work at very quick production rhythms, they widely use lubricating fluids such as oil or oil emulsions and water.

    Monitoring of hydrocarbons in bilge water

    The Situation

    Various processes onboard ships, such as machinery wash-down, maintenance, and leakage, generate oily wastewater. This contaminated water flow collects in the bilge of the ship. Marine diesel, lubricating oils, grease, as well as other contaminants may be present in bilge water. The bilge water is discharged overboard, with oil and grease concentrations in the discharged water limited by national and international regulations.

    Monitoring of heat exchanger leaks in paper plant

    The Situation

    A paper plant in the Eastern United States uses 500 gallons per minute filtered pond water for cooling lubricating oil in its paper line. The resulting warmed water is diverted to an onsite pond. Because the water is used to cool lubricating oil, the plant could not reuse the water in its pulping process for fears of possible oil contamination of the paper pulp.

    Monitoring of hydroelectric dam sumps

    The Situation

    Hydroelectric dams produce electric power by harnessing the force of the water flowing through the dam. There are numerous sources for oil spillage:

    • The hydroelectric turbines are lubricated by lubrication oils.
    • The very large water control valves are normally hydraulic powered and are lubricated with various greases and oils.
    • Vehicles including fork lifts, trucks, etc., can spill oils and fuels.

    Any accidental spillage of oil or grease or intentional wash down water containing minor amounts of oils, greases, and detergents must be collected and treated before discharge to the river. These fluids along with any water leaks are collected in sumps in the dam and are regularly pumped out. In many cases, the volume of water is substantial.

    Laboratory instruments solutions for petrochemical and biofuel

    Crude oil is a highly complex mixture of hydrocarbons. Through desalting, distillation, and conversion, it is transformed into fractions of higher-quality hydrocarbons such as paraffins, aromatics, naphthenes, and olefins. Different ratios of these so-called PIANO compounds are blended to yield different fuel and lubricant types. Increasingly, fossil fuels are blended with biofuels. Both blending and refining processes are demanding and require precise and reliable analysis. Regardless whether you deal with fossil or biogenic products, we are your specialist when it comes to analyzing them in accordance with international standards.

    Machine condition monitoring for municipalities

    Overview

    Cities and towns are often responsible for maintaining critical assets such as water and wastewater treatment facilities and power generation plants. Oil analysis on this critical equipment as part of a robust maintenance program is a very cost effective way of failure avoidance. Additionally, greater emphasis on environmental conservation and a focus on delivering critical services while operating under reduced budgets leads municipalities to activate these programs. Spectro oil analysis solutions are used by many municipalities to monitor treatment plant gearboxes and backup diesel generators, and avoid costly lubrication mixups.

    Machine condition monitoring for metals processing

    Overview

    Metals processing industries employ large, critical assets, the reliability of which is absolutely essential to their business model. An undetected failure of a piece of processing equipment such as a rolling mill gearbox, or a 1000 ton extruder press not only involves the cost of equipment repair and line downtime, but the product quality may be severely impacted. Today more than ever, there is also less redundancy. Oil analysis is a critical aspect of a reliability based maintenance program, and for many large slow speed systems, it is the first line of protection. Spectro’s oil analysis solutions are designed to monitor this critical oil lubricated machinery, and provide the asset owners with timely information for reliability decision support.

    Machine condition monitoring for racing

    Overview

    Grand Prix racing utilizes cutting-edge high performance engines operation at extreme RPMs and temperatures. To keep the very valuable engines operational and competitive requires a team of mechanics paying careful attention to the engine and lubricant condition. To support this, engine condition monitoring based on oil analysis has become a widely practiced technique by Formula One racing teams. 

    Not only do the racing teams themselves take Spectro Scientific instruments to races, but the companies that design, build and test racing engines also are Spectro Scientific customers. We welcome the opportunity to continue to be of service to existing customers and to assist new customers with their oil analysis instrumentation requirements.
