The Spectro Scientific Industrial Tribology Laboratory (ITL) is a turnkey system that provides a complete lubricant analysis condition monitoring solution. The measurements made using the Industrial Tribology Laboratory determine lubricant and machine condition, the core of any effective predictive maintenance system. Spectro Inc.’s ITL system is expandable and can incorporate testing and measurement solutions for other machinery fluids such as fuel, coolants, transformer oils and greases.
Spectro Scientific installs and provides training for all instruments as an integrated system. Since the Industrial Tribology Laboratory is a turnkey system, supplied and installed by one vendor, the worry and learning curve errors associated with new methods and equipment are minimized during the startup process. Condition monitoring of your equipment can begin immediately after the installation of your instruments and during the initial training of your personnel.
The instruments that constitute an ITL are carefully chosen because they provide the necessary data to effectively monitor the condition of your oil lubricated equipment, but also because they are easy to operate and maintain, require a minimum of special utilities to install and provide strong sample throughput (most measurements take about 1 minute). The analytical instruments send results to the central computer (or a network) where they are stored in database file for subsequent analysis, evaluation, and reporting.
