Spectro Scientific, an ISO 9001:2008 company, specializes in analytical tools and software for machine condition monitoring. The company is one of the largest suppliers of oil and fuel analysis instruments to industry and the military worldwide. Industry clients include petrochemical, mining, marine and power generation companies as well as commercial testing laboratories. Spectro Scientific’s extensive product offerings include spectrometers for wear metal analysis, lubricant degradation and contamination analyzers, particle analysis instruments and complete turnkey systems for oil or fuel analysis laboratories, all managed by its SpectroTrack software platform.
Spectro Scientific develops a broad array of fluid analysis instruments for evaluating machine and lubricant condition in the field, in the lab and in highly mobile, handheld applications. The instruments provide critical data about an engine’s condition and can provide an early warning of engine failure. Capturing, analyzing and trending this data on Spectro Scientific products enable you to:
Schedule maintenance before a failure occurs
Avoid the expense of maintenance you don’t need
Avoid the disruption of taking an engine out of service unnecessarily
The result is higher equipment availability, greater productivity, lower maintenance costs, lower total cost of ownership, fewer outages, optimal equipment performance and greener operation.
The InfraCal 2 Ethanol Blend Analyzer for measuring percent ethanol in gasoline is the ideal solution where a quick, accurate, on-site measurement is required and a single, repetitive ethanol blend analysis is needed. The InfraCal 2 ATR-E is based on proven IR technology, and used by fuel terminals, laboratories and regulatory agencies worldwide. The compact, easy-to-use InfraCal 2 ATR-E has a measurement range of 0-20 & 70-98%% ethanol in gasoline and an accuracy of +/- 0.2%. These results are comparable to ASTM D4815.
The InfraCal 2 Biodiesel Blend Analyzer for measuring percent biodiesel in diesel is the ideal solution where a quick, accurate, on-site measurement is required and a single, repetitive biodiesel blend analysis is needed. The InfraCal 2 ATR-B is based on proven IR technology, originally developed by Wilks, and used by fuel distributors, blenders, producers and regulatory agencies worldwide. The compact, easy-to-use Biodiesel Blend Analyzer has a measurement range of 0 – 100% biodiesel in diesel. These results are comparable to both ASTM D7371 and EN 14078, laboratory methods that require expensive FTIR Spectrometers.
Oil in Water/Soil Products
The InfraCal 2 TRANS-SP is recommended for measuring oil in water, TPH in soil or FOG in wastewater concentration levels using the traditional EPA methods 413.2 and 418.1 or ASTM method D7066-04 and Freon-113, hydrocarbon-free grade of perchloroethylene, AK-225, S-316 or other spectroscopic infrared transparent solvent as the extracting solvent. Since the extract is deposited into a 10 mm quartz cuvette cell with Teflon stopper, light end volatile components are retained for measurement. Accurate down to 0.1 ppm.
The InfraCal 2 TRANS-SP, the latest introduction to our easy to use analyzers, uses the same measurement technology as the original InfraCal Model CVH, with added features such as data storage and transfer, multiple calibrations and password protection for instrument settings
The InfraCal Model ATR-SP is recommended for measuring oil in water, TPH in soil or FOG in wastewater concentration levels when using hexane, pentane or Vertrel MCA as the extracting solvent. Measurement data obtained with this analyzer will correlate to EPA Method 1664 as both procedures are based on evaporation techniques and measuring the residual oil and grease. The analyzer is equipped with a built-in cubic zirconia horizontal attenuated total reflection (HATR) stainless steel sample stage. The InfraCal 2 ATR-SP is a direct replacement for the original InfraCal HATR-T2 used worldwide for the determination of TOG/TPH in water and soil.
