In any machine, corrosion and wear lead to surface deterioration of the lubricated components and thus to most mechanical plant downtimes. The required oil change in a cargo ship costs numerous liters of this limited and precious raw material. Therefore, optimal maintenance of such high-performance engines plays a decisive role in many aspects: for the efficiency of the company, the safety of employees and also for a more sustainable use of fossil raw materials.
Infrared spectroscopy is an excellent method for the analysis of oils and lubricants and provides operators with important information for maintenance. The core of such analytical instruments is the thermopile line array TPL 64 from Micro-Hybrid.
