Spotlight on Spectro Scientific

May 10th, 2017

UE Systems is pleased to welcome Spectro Scientific and their advanced oil analysis solutions as sponsors of this year's Reliability World Conference in Clearwater Beach, Florida. As a global leader in analytical tools for the petrochemical, mining, marine and power generation industries, Spectro Scientific is proud to support the conference and excited to present their solutions to all attendees.

As an ISO 9001:2008 firm, Spectro Scientific specializes in the development of analytical tools and software for oil, fuel and fluid analysis, with instruments optimized for field, lab and mobile applications.

Oil and fluid analysis lowers costs, improves results

Too many reliability professionals still need to rely on external laboratories for their oil analysis programs, which can ultimately put high-value assets and machinery at risk if results are too slow or too costly. Integrating on-site oil analysis as part of proactive and predictive maintenance programs lets reliability engineering professionals:

  • Lower maintenance costs.
  • Reduce unscheduled downtimes.
  • Increase machine availability.
  • Extend equipment life.
  • Decrease total lifecycle equipment costs.

Oil contamination and wear are leading causes of equipment failure in many cases, and the sooner and more efficiently they can be addressed, the more effective professionals can make a maintenance program. 

New solutions offer enhanced capabilities

At this year's Reliability World, Spectro Scientific will be highlighting two innovative offerings in the analytics field.

The MiniLab 53 is a basic on-site oil analyzer that can diagnose the health and integrity of lubrication systems in under 10 minutes. It answers three basic questions:

  • What is the level of wear on the machine and when is it predicted to fail?
  • How dry and free of dirt is the oil?
  • Is the oil of the correct type, chemically sound and fit for use?

In addition, Spectro Scientific offers the FerroCheck 2000, a precision, portable magnetometer for ferrous metal analysis. With less than half a minute and 1.5 mL of oil, the FerroCheck can determine the concentration of ferrous metal contaminants in an oil sample to within single-digit ppm.
