The Spectro Industrial Tribology Laboratory (ITL) is a turnkey system providing condition monitoring for machines, lubricants and engines by oil analysis. The measurements made using the ITL determine both lubricant and machine condition, the cornerstones of any effective predictive maintenance system. Spectro has put together an instrument package that makes the necessary measurements to effectively monitor all the oil lubricated equipment in your plant or fleet.
The instruments Spectro has chosen to accomplish this task are 1) Spectroil Q100 optical emission spectrometer for analysis of wear metals, additives and contaminants, 2) a Spectro Q400 or SpectroAlpha Q410 Oil Analyzer for analysis of organic components, 3) a SpectroVISC automatic viscometer, 4) SpectroLNF Q200 Particle Classifier and Counter and 5) a computer (or network) for data storage, processing and retrieval. Optionally Spectro provides additional instruments to enhance the data generated by the basic instruments of the turnkey industrial tribology configuration. They include ferrography instruments, a fuel dilution meter, and titrators for TAN, TBN or Karl Fisher water determinations. A local area network (LAN) version of the ITL system is also available for laboratories that process large numbers of oil samples.
Included in the ITL is a web-based information management system, SpectroTrack. SpectroTrack consists of software that analyzes real-time equipment condition. The software provides the user with data to make maintenance decisions based on machine condition increasing the availability of key assets, reducing unscheduled maintenance by detecting and correcting problems before major failures occur and extending oil drain intervals and equipment life.
Spectro installs and provides training for all instruments as an integrated system. Since the Industrial Tribology Laboratory is a turnkey system, supplied and installed by one vendor, the worry and learning curve errors associated with new methods and equipment are minimized during the startup process. Asset management of your equipment can begin immediately after the installation of your equipment and during the initial training of your personnel.
