This out-of-the box solution enables labs to get up and running faster, regardless of the level of expertise. This comprehensive compilation of materials includes detailed SOP’s, sampling accessories, calibrations, and quick reference guides, all brought together through the Touch App interface. This system includes:

  • In-Service Lubricants Application Pack
  • Spectrum Two Instrument
  • Spectrum 10 Software

FT-IR In-Service Lubricants Application Pack

The FT-IR In-Service Lubricants Application Pack contains all of the resources and components necessary to perform efficient lubricant analysis in the laboratory and out in the field.

The In-Service Lubricants Application Pack contains:

  • Flow cell with ZnSe windows, a wedged spacer, and Leur fittings
  • 3 mL Leur Lok plastic syringe starter pack of 100
  • Torque screwdriver
  • HEX BIT, 3.0 mm
  • IR Liquid Cell Leur Connected Waste Tube
  • PTFE plugs (pack of 6)
  • In-Service Lubricants Touch Apps Software Kit

The Touch Apps Software Kit includes the software and SOPs to support the condition monitoring of in-service lubricants and provide a simplified workflow-driven operating environment; for faster, more reproducible analyses.

The Touch Apps software supports the following analyses:

  • JOAP direct-trending methods for petroleum, synthetic lubricants, and hydraulic fluids.
  • ASTM E2412 direct-trending and spectral-subtraction methods.
  • PerkinElmer methods for mineral and synthetic oils, petroleum hydraulic fluids, and turbine fluids. The SOPs provide clear instructions for day-to-day use and validation of the system; while the User’s Guide contains detailed instructions for oil condition monitoring, as well as instructions for the maintenance of the system and customization of the Spectrum Touch applications.

Spectrum Two Instrument

The Spectrum Two spectrometer with KBr optics and a standard, high-performance room temperature LiTaO3 (lithium tantalate) detector delivers a spectral scan range of 8,300 – 350 cm-1 whilst offering 0.5 cm-1 resolution and 9,300:1 peak-peak signal-to-noise ratio for a 5 second scan in a sleek, compact design.

Key features that allow for consistent performance of this system include:

  • Dynascan interferometer – Fixed mirror-pair interferometer design does not require dynamic alignment to compensate for errors.
  • OpticsGuard technology – Unique humidity shield design protects Spectrum Two from environmental effects, allowing it to be used in more challenging conditions. Our long-life desiccant ensures maximum instrument uptime, regardless of where your analysis takes place.
  • Atmospheric Vapor Compensation (AVC) – Features an advanced digital filtering algorithm designed to compensate for CO2 and H2O absorptions in real time removing the need for instrument purging.
  • Automatic Performance Verification (APV) – Optional feature comprising an integrated, fully automatic filter wheel containing traceable reference materials and software allowing for abscissa, ordinate, noise, ASTM, and USP tests to be performed.
  • Absolute Virtual Instrument (AVI) – Optional AVI standardization using gas phase methane spectra ensures instruments are accurately calibrated. Unique standardization allows data to be transferred precisely between instruments, side-by-side or in remote locations.
  • Sigma-Delta Conversion: The use of Sigma-Delta converters in the digitization of the FT-IR interferogram improves the dynamic range, reduces spectral artifacts, and increases ordinate linearity to provide accurate, reproducible results.

Spectrum 10 Software

Included in this system is the Spectrum 10 software, which enables you to control the instrument and to manipulate the spectra that you collect. The spectrometers can operate in ratio, single-beam, or interferogram mode.

From material and contaminant identification to quantitative analysis, the comprehensive Spectrum 10 software suite allows you to focus on what matters most – results. Designed for busy academic laboratories, this comprehensive FT-IR software package facilitates data collection, processing, results generation, basic and advanced data manipulation, spectral calculations, COMPARE spectral comparison, PLS/PCR/Beer’s Law predictions, Beer’s Law Quant method development, spectral search with starter libraries, and built-in online tutorials. The software enables users without scientific training to generate infrared spectra from a sample and validate them against reference spectra in minutes, or even seconds.

Raising the bar in FT-IR

Lubrication is a vital component of machinery and, as with any component, early detection of wear is essential for timely replacement, avoiding unnecessary maintenance while reducing the risk of catastrophic breakdowns. Early identification of impending lubricant failure can prevent costly damage. Infrared (IR) analysis is a rapid, inexpensive test that can provide specific information about the chemical condition of the oil.
