SPECTRO Analytical Instruments has introduced a condition monitoring system based on its SPECTRO GENESIS inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometer (ICP-OES).
The GENESIS system swiftly, accurately, and cost-effectively assesses component wear trends by analyzing lubricating oils for the presence of metals and contaminants that may accelerate wear. This early detection allows users to prevent equipment failures and helps optimize maintenance programs.
Using the latest detector technology, the system’s full-spectrum analysis covers the entire elemental range needed for additive, wear, and trace analysis of lubricating oils. In particular, it offers increased sensitivity for critical light elements such as Na, Mg, Al, and Si, while offering high sensitivity for wear and trace elements.
It also provides the speed of fully simultaneous analysis, achieving rapid sample cycle times of 90 seconds or less—independent of how many elements must be analyzed.
