Manufacturers of food and beverages typically have a high volume of product passing through their facilities at all times. For this reason, any unexpected downtime can be very costly in terms of lost production. In addition, many food and beverage facilities have difficult challenges associated with lubricant contamination.
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...
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.
Machine condition monitoring using oil analysis is widely practiced by virtually every segment of modern industry that maintains large, expensive, oil-lubricated machines. In many cases, especially in smaller plants or enterprises, samples are sent to commercial oil analysis laboratories that can help monitor machinery health.
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
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...
Machine condition monitoring based on oil analysis has become an important, if not mandatory, maintenance practice by the marine industry. An effective oil analysis program will keep important assets such as engines, gearboxes, hydraulic systems, turbines, compressors, generators and any other oil-wetted machinery in operation by reducing unexpected failures and costly unscheduled down time.
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. OILAN A4 detects water leaks in their early stages and helps to prevent expensive failures and down time of the lubricated machinery and Equipment. This Equipment measures the water content above the saturation point.
The IMO (International Maritime Organization) continuously sets new standards in order to minimize and control the harmful polluting exhausts from vessel engines. IMO is the World’s largest maritime organization with over 170 member states and acts as a regulatory agency for the international maritime industry.
Whether you need to remove biological debris, fingerprints, protein, starch, or dye, our cleaners provide consistent results. An economical 1-2% concentration in water is effective in most cleaning applications. Our laboratory cleaners are excellent for use on flasks, pipettes, slides, stainless steel, plastic, and other laboratory equipment and surfaces. When rinsed properly, our cleaners leave no residue.
Distributors of fresh oil and lubricants care about their clients and the service they provide. However, without intelligent oil level monitoring it is very hard to judge when clients need their tanks filled. This can lead to costly over servicing, or worse, not delivering on time and leaving clients short, damaging client relationships. Predictive deliveries are not reliable and having clients order more fresh oil is a hassle they could do without.
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.
