Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) Spectroscopy is a powerful, non-destructive analytical technique that has been widely adopted across various industries for the chemical characterization of solid, liquid, and gaseous samples. This webcast will provide an overview of the fundamentals of FTIR spectroscopy and touch upon key application areas for the analysis of polymers, raw materials, and fuels/oils. In addition, we will take an in-depth look at the different types of sampling techniques and measurement modes typically used on a FTIR bench and provide tips-and-tricks on sample handling and preparation..

In-Service Oil Analysis by ICP-OES. In-Service Lubricant Laboratories face a myriad of challenges when it comes to running hundreds of samples each day on their ICP. In the first part of this webcast, we’ll review best practices for effective oil analysis by ICP. This solid foundation sets the scene for adding secondary applications to successful oil analysis. Hyphenated Particle Count with ICP-OES. Traditionally, particle counting and elemental analyses are conducted separately. This requires additional time to separately prepare the same sample. Additionally, running 2 different preparations of the same sample introduces challenges for each analysis. During the second half of this live webcast, we’ll discuss a patent-pending approach for integrating particle counting and wear metals analysis into a single sample run – a game changer in laboratory workflow that considerably improves operating costs..
