Handheld Analyzer for Oil

Prinoth Spectro Scientific introduced Version 5 of the FluidScan portable infrared oil analyzer, which enables users to determine when oil is contaminated or degraded. The new version is more sensitive, analyzes faster, and draws on a larger body of archive data than previous versions, the company reported. Only one drop of oil is needed for on-site analysis, which eliminates the wait caused by outsourcing analysis to third-party labs. The new version lowers limits of detection on total water measurement for turbine oils from 1,000 parts per million (ppm) to 300 ppm, boosting analysis sensitivity and accuracy compared to previous versions. The FluidScan oil library went from 300 oils to more than 700, facilitating the analysis of more than 97% of the oils Spectro customers reported using last year. Measurement stability is reinforced by a new infrared background measurement function. With the new version, Spectro also released software and firmware updates for the rest of the MiniLab system.
