“Plug & analyze” wear metals and additives in lubricating oils

Posted 1/29/2014

The elemental analysis of used lubricating oil has become an essential part of “condition monitoring”, the use of physical and chemical techniques to measure the condition of plant and equipment with the objective of preventing equipment failure and optimizing maintenance programs. Specialist service laboratories and major plant operators analyze hundreds of oil samples per day for a wide range of elements to detect component wear and the presence of foreign matter that may accelerate wear. The systematic analysis of lubricating oils in service can result in lower operating costs, reduced downtimes, extended plant and equipment lifetimes and more effective maintenance programs. There are many techniques for elemental analysis, but Inductively Coupled Plasma – Optical Emission Spectrometry (ICP-OES) has become the technique of choice in most service laboratories. There are two main types of ICP-OES instruments: sequential ICP-OES spectrometers measure each element in turn by “scanning” from one element to the...
