    Analysis of In-Service Oils Following ASTM D5185 with the Avio 220 Max ICP-OES

    With heavy machinery, it is important to assess its status during operation to prevent breakdowns and costly repairs. A key aspect is monitoring the status of the oil or lubricants used to lubricate various components such as engines, transmissions, gearboxes and many other important areas: if the oil degrades too much or becomes highly contaminated, it can damage various components. Because of its importance, ASTM created a method for the analysis of in-service oils: method D5185.

    This work demonstrates the ability of the Avio® 220 Max hybrid simultaneous ICP-OES to perform a common implementation of ASTM method D5185 for in-service oil analysis.

    Determination of Oil Content in Membranes Used in Compressed Air Sampling by Infrared Spectroscopy

    This note describes the test method for the quantitative analysis of aerosol oil and liquid oil typically present in the air discharged from compressors and compressed air systems. The method is rapid, sensitive and cost effective and shows the FT-IR can be an effective tool for the monitoring of oil content. The methodology followed for the analysis by FT-IR is reported in Bureau of Indian Standard and we have also tested for its ruggedness, spike recovery, linearity and detection limits.

    Analysis of Wastewaters Following U.S. EPA 200.7 Using the Avio 550 Max ICP-OES

    The prevention and control of water pollution is of critical importance to protecting both human and environmental health, and as a result, water must be monitored for pollutants at various stages, starting from the discharge of wastes and wastewaters all the way through the production of drinking water. In this regard, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) developed Method 200.7 for the determination of metals and trace elements in waters and wastes by ICP-OES.

    This work demonstrates the ability of the Avio® 550 Max fully simultaneous ICP-OES to efficiently and accurately perform wastewater analysis following the guidelines in U.S. EPA Method 200.7.

    Analysis of Impurities in Aluminum with the Avio 220 Max ICP-OES Following London Metal Exchange Guidelines

    Due to aluminum’s varied uses and popularity, there are many grades available. The London Metal Exchange (LME) lists specifications for two commonly-used aluminum (Al) purities: 99.5% and 99.7%1, with each having up to six inorganic impurities specified. ICP-OES is the best technique for measuring these impurities at these levels due to its ability to easily handle high-matrix samples and simplicity of operation.

    This work describes the analysis of impurities in Al at the LME specifications using the Avio® 220 Max hybrid simultaneous ICP-OES, an ideal choice for this application – its optical design provides excellent light throughput, essential for measuring lower concentrations with shorter analytical times, plus, its charge-coupled device (CCD detector) provides simultaneous background and analyte measurement, important for samples such as metal matrices.
