Raising the bar in FT-IR: Getting the most out of On-site Oil Condition Monitoring



Oil inevitably degrades with use and is exposed to various sources of contamination. The benefits of oil condition monitoring can be further increased by complementing routine measurements at a centralized laboratory with more rapid on-site analysis using a portable analyzer. This article reviews infrared oil condition monitoring and describes the design considerations for an on-site oil analyzer, the In-Service Lubricants FT-IR Analysis System from PerkinElmer.
