  • Solvent choices for infrared testing of oil and grease in water

    Water is a very strong absorber in the mi d infrared (I R) regio n where o il is measured. We see the effect of infrared absorbance when a cold bucket of water left in the sun is quite warm by afternoon due to the absorption of infrared energy as heat. When measuring part per million (ppm) oil levels with mid IR, the water absorbs so much of the infrared energy that the signal becomes saturated ...
