No other method established in used oil monitoring can detect oil ageing in its variety and complexity as well as infrared spectroscopy.

FT-IR spectroscopy provides a lot of useful information reliable and in a very short time: It detects contaminants such as water, soot, antifreeze glycol, oil oxidation, nitration, the consumption of typical oil additives or evaluates the match of different fresh oils and oil mixtures.

The online series consisting of 4 modules, which can also be booked separately, demonstrates how to apply FT-IR spectroscopy in practice. Based on the standardized methods and a large number of practical examples the trainer demonstrates how FT-IR spectroscopy can be used far beyond that to identify and monitor hydraulic fluids, lubricating oils and greases. Furthermore, it is always explained how to consider the specific conditions and what basic rules must be observed in order to obtain reliable statements.
