In mission-critical applications such as military, aerospace or racing engine development, or in large engine maintenance facilities such as railway and power generation facilities, real-time, comprehensive lab quality oil analysis data is needed for immediate decision making. Setting up a full scale on-site oil analysis lab is expensive with hidden costs for labor, facility, environmental and safety overhead.

Spectro Scientific's newly introduced MiniLab EL Series is an environmentally friendly engine oil analysis tool that produces laboratory quality oil analysis data in 5 minutes. It is fully ASTM compliant, without the need for special facility requirements or chemicals and less than 5 ml of engine oil.

Attendees will learn how to utilize this new non-destructive inspection (NDI) tool for various applications that was not possible previously. The applications range from engine development and production quality control to large engine maintenance for railway and generation set fleets.
