SPECTROGRAPHIC ANALYSIS OF DIESEL ENGINE LUBRICATING OILS BY THE ROTATING PLATFORM METHOD

The most promising of a number of methods for analyzing wear products in diesel-engine lubricating oils were examined. With certain modifications, the rotating-platform technique shows advantages over the others, in terms of accuracy, (plus or minus 10%) sensitivity (1 ppm lead), speed (20 min. per sample), cleanliness, little smoke, no residue and versatility (quickly installed).
