  • UK Power Station Adopts Portable FTIR analyzer for Determining Water in Lubricating Oil

    Danbury CT. The level of water in lubricating oil is critical to measure and control since it can accelerate oxidation and affect lubrication performance. For years, chemists have relied on Karl Fischer titrations to measure the level of water in lubricating oil. Mr. Richard Wilson, Environmental & Performance Manager for the Ferrybridge Power Station in West Yorkshire, England, has now ...

  • Pending ASTM Biodiesel Blend Method for Filter-Based IR Analyzers

    Currently, Methods D7371 and EN 14078 require FTIR spectrometers for biodiesel blend analysis. Placing expensive equipment at a loading dock to ensure biodiesel blend accuracy is not a preferred choice of terminal operators. In addition to the cost associated with FTIR spectrometers, the level of technical knowledge required to operate them presents another issue. Filter-based infrared analyzers, ...
