On November 30, 2016, Spectro Scientific – one of the world’s largest suppliers of oil, fuel, and processed water analysis instrumentation and software –noted five years of the company’s growth in the Chinese market with a celebratory event in Beijing. More than 100 industrial customers, government representatives, and members of the Chinese Academy of Sciences attended the gathering.

The FerroCheck portable magnetometer provides accuracy and convenience in measurement of total ferrous wear particulates in lubricating fluids. FerroCheck enables users to perform accurate measurements of ferrous wear particles, both in the field, and in the lab where it can be used to analyze gearbox, transmission and other fluids in fleet and industrial maintenance applications.

Engineered to expedite machine condition monitoring and quality control evaluations, SpectrOil 100 Series elemental spectrometers provide quick, laboratory-precise measurement of elemental concentrations in a variety of fluid types. The ease of operation makes them ideal for use in laboratories, on-site inspection and maintenance environments, where rapid test results create value.

Spectro Scientific introduces the MiniLab 153 oil analysis system, enabling reliability and maintenance professionals to quickly and accurately perform comprehensive on-site lubricant analysis.  The MiniLab153 system is easy to operate and allows plant personnel with minimal training to perform consistently accurate analyses. A complete lab-quality measurement can be obtained on-site in less than 20 minutes. 

Spectro Scientific today announced the launch of the new MicroLab® Series all-in-one, automated lubricant analysis systems. The MicroLab platform is used in virtually every industry that operates equipment powered by engines including automotive and trucking, energy, mining and heavy equipment, agricultural and the government sector at all levels from the military to local municipalities.

The new standard D8004 from ASTM International, “Test Method for Fuel Dilution of In-Service Lubricants Using Surface Acoustic Wave Sensing,” certifies an innovative fluid analysis technique offered by Spectro Scientific, a leading developer and manufacturer of analytical tools and software for fluid and machine condition monitoring.

Spectro Scientific’s CoolCheck® 2 coolant analyzer offers fast and reliable fluid analysis for vehicle owners and service providers.
