The Application of the B&W Tek i-Spec Visible-NIR Spectrometer to Condition Monitoring of Oils and Lubricants: Example Hydraulic Fluids
Optical spectral measurements have been used for decades for the identification, characterization and quality assessment of oils and lubricants. The most common spectroscopic method, which has been well documented since the 1960s, is infrared spectroscopy, today used in the form of FTIR. In this application note, the i-Spec system is considered as a complementary tool to FTIR for condition monitoring of fluids outside of the traditional laboratory environment.
