Spectro Scientific and Wärtsilä Services co-market BN analyzer that provides direct quantitative Base Number (BN) measurement of two-stroke cylinder oil for marine engines - in less than one minute. The analyzer optimizes cylinder feed rates by allowing ship-board engineers to avoid overlubrication of the cylinders and reduce corrosion due to slow steaming, saving time and component replacements costs.
Spectro Scientific announces the formation of a joint marketing agreement with Wärtsilä Services Switzerland. Spectro Scientific is developing a specialized version of its FluidScan® oil chemistry analyzer for the control of Base Number (BN) in the cylinder lubricant for two-stroke marine engines and various other parameters in system oils.
Spectro Scientific Meets the Predictive Maintenance Needs of Industrial Plants with the MiniLab 53 On-Site Oil Analysis System
Spectro Scientific Releases New Comprehensive Water Solution
Spectro Scientific, a leading developer and manufacturer of analytical tools and software for industrial fluids analysis, has expanded its ability to serve end users of condition monitoring equipment with the November 28, 2014, acquisition of 100 percent of On-Site Analysis, Inc. (www.on-siteanalysis.com).
The Wilks InfraCal 2 Analyzers provide accurate, easy, on-site analysis to help both regulators and industry comply with permit requirements and avoid potentially costly fines. These instruments now feature a multiple calibration option that allows for a wider measurement range – as low as 1 ppm up to 10 percent, providing greater flexibility for pretreatment operators and regulators to test a variety of samples.
Spectro Scientific today announced the release of its Q6000 Series Fuel Dilution Meter (FDM). The Q6000 FDM operates in the laboratory or in the field to provide rapid, accurate measurements of fuel contamination in engine oil.
Spectro Scientific, a leading developer and manufacturer of analytical tools and software for fluid and machine condition monitoring, has been awarded two multi-year contracts from the United States Air Force under the Joint Oil Analysis Program (JOAP). The first is for the continued supply of the company’s Spectroil MN/W optical emission (OE) spectrometers. The second is for the global service and support of the company’s widely deployed Spectroil OE spectrometers. Both contracts are exclusive to Spectro Scientific, run approximately five (5) years in length, and are estimated to have a total value to the company of $18M to $22M.
Spectro Scientific, a leading developer and manufacturer of analytical tools and software for fluid and machine condition monitoring, has earned a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II award totaling $750,000 for its work in reevaluating the Joint Oil Analysis Program (JOAP) that consolidates and coordinates the oil analysis programs of the U.S. Army, Navy and Air Force. The U.S. Small Business Administration makes the SBIR award to promote high-tech innovation in the fulfillment of specific research and development needs. The contract awarded to Spectro Scientific for Phase II efforts extends into calendar year 2016.
Machinery health is the goal of a predictive maintenance (PdM) program. Lubrication oil is the lifeblood of any mechanical asset, containing nearly all of the information needed to keep a machine running. In this webinar, Spectro Scientific will discuss practical oil testing programs implemented outside of the lab and operated by in-house employees. The presentation will also highlight case studies from the power generation industry.
[CHELMSFORD, MA – April 30, 2014] - The Spectro LaserNet Fines (“LNF”) Q200 Series is a powerful analytical platform for oil analysis, condition monitoring and maintenance and reliability programs. It provides a particle counter, wear particle classifier, and ferrous monitor all in one scalable and upgradeable package. The LNF technology, developed through a partnership with the U.S. Navy, provides particle counts and codes, dirt ingress, abnormal wear classification, ferrous wear measurement, and free water calculation. The Q200 is simple to use and yields rapid results.
The leading fluid analysis instrument company formerly known as Spectro Inc. today announced from its Global Partners Symposium in Las Vegas, Nevada that it has officially changed its name and undergone a comprehensive corporate rebranding.
Spectro Scientific, a leading developer and manufacturer of analytical tools and software for industrial fluids analysis, has strengthened its senior management team with the addition of Mark Spillane as Vice President of Operations and Bob Wopperer as Vice President of Business Development.
Spectro Scientific and Lockheed Martin Corporation have signed an exclusive licensing agreement for Lockheed Martin’s LaserNet Fines® (LNF) fluid imaging and classification technology. The agreement will enable Spectro, a leading developer and manufacturer of analytical tools and software for fluid and machine condition monitoring, to enhance its present products and develop and manufacture new offerings based on the desktop, off-line version of LNF.
On October 1, 2013, ASTM International approved Test Method D7889, “Standard Test Method for Field Determination of In-Service Fluid properties using IR Spectroscopy.” The approval represents official confirmation that the FluidScan® handheld infrared oil analysis technology from Spectro Scientific meets ASTM guidelines for the analysis of in-service lubricants.
