Standard Oil Condition Analysis:

Elemental Analysis by ICP-OES

Technique Inductively Coupled Plasma - Optical Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-OES)
What it Tells Us Provides information on the elemental composition of your sample. Oil and fuel samples are typically mixed with solvent and analysed, however other types of sample including greases and coolants will usually require acid digestion prior to analysis. The various elements detected in the sample are important sources of data, providing information on the presence of wear metals, contaminants and degradation of lubricant additive packages. From this information, the laboratory can provide useful information and advice to best care for the lubricated component in question.
Standard Test Methods ASTM D5185. Multiple other in-house methodologies, dependant on application.
Sample Required per Test At least 1mL.
Test Result The results for as many as 30 elements, depending on test suite and sample type. Results supplied in parts per million (ppm) or milligrams per kilogram (mg/Kg)
