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.

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.
With new, tougher environmental regulations going into effect, the risk of dealing with lubricant discharges has never been greater, but that risk can be minimized by using RSC Bio Solutions’ line of readily biodegradable lubricants, cleaners and solvents. Our RSC EnviroLogic and RSC SAFECARE series meet a wide variety of environmental regulations, such as the 2013 EPA Vessel General Permit (VGP), SARA, SNAP, and US EPA.

Whether it`s blending lubricants, mixing base stock and additives, thinning heavy emulsions or keeping storage tanks at a constant temperature, Pulsair Systems` technology...
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.
A Contec oil mist separator (COMS), type 9.200/762, with special frame construction for the lubrication system of the energy supply is being used on the latest cruise ship of the Celebrity Cruises shipping line. The energy requirements of the cruise ship - built by Meyer Werft Papenburg - is covered by four MAN Diesel & Turbo SE, type 14V48/60CR, diesel engines. The Contec oil mist separator, type 9.200/762, with upstream demister and M6 filter cartridge ensures the reduction of particle contamination....

Innovas Technologies offers our innovative Helios Tube Cleaning System technology that prevents fouling your process heat exchangers naturally and sustainably — without costly process shutdowns or chemical treatments. Whether it’s a process heat exchanger, SAGD produced water heat exchanger, extraction water preheater, vacuum condenser, or overheads condenser, our ball tube cleaning system technology...
Silicones are inert, synthetic compounds with a variety of forms and uses. Typically heat-resistant and rubber-like, they are used in sealants, adhesives, lubricants, medical applications, cookware, and insulation. Silicones are polymers that include silicon together with carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and sometimes other chemical elements. Some common forms include silicone oil, silicone grease, silicone rubber, and silicone resin.
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.
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...
Engine manufacturers use Spectro Scientific oil analysis instruments to assist in engine testing during new product development, testing engines during manufacturing run-in, and for qualifying new lubricants. Engines include:
Gasoline and diesel automobile engines
Truck and other high speed diesel engines
Medium speed diesel engines such as those used for locomotives, marine and power generation
Extremely large low speed diesel engines for marine propulsion and power generation
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...
Assembly of many electronic components involves multiple washing processes to remove residue, oil, acids and other lubricants and contaminants before during and following various process steps. This generates large volumes of wastewater containing alkaline, acid solutions, heavy metal wastewaters, paint, plating residue wastewater, and other metal fabrication wastewaters. Polishing, grinding and dicing operations in semiconductor manufacturing produce wastewater high in suspended solids, including silica,...
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...
Manufacturing, metal fabrication and metal finishing require multiple washing processes to remove residue, oil, acids and other lubricants and contaminants before during and following various process steps. This generates large volumes of wastewater containing alkaline, acid solutions, heavy metal wastewaters, paint, plating residue wastewater, and other metal fabrication wastewaters. Wastewater and wash water from spills and floor cleaning must also be properly disposed. These manufacturing waste waters cannot...

There are many industrial operations that are producing waste water and process water that is at risk of contamination with e.g. lubricating oils or cooling oils. There is also significant use of cooling water at risk of contamination through leaks in heat exchangers and condensers.
Airport operations lead to many different types of wastewater for example through general airport, hangar and logistics operations as well as refuelling and cleaning of the aircrafts. The effluent from the runways is contaminated with oils, lubricants, detergents and other chemicals.
Searching for a solution to monitoring the water in your oil. Our on-line oil water content analyzer instantly shows changes in the lubrication oil water content.
