Mg, Si, P, S, Cl, Ca, Zn, Ba and Mo in new lube oils

AppNote XRF1592: analysis of Mg, Si, P, S, Cl, Ca, Zn, Ba and Mo in lube oils

Background

Analysis of Mg, Si, P, S, Cl, Ca, Zn, Ba and Mo in new lube oils is demonstrated using the empirical approach. Quality control and quality assurance during the lube oil blending and manufacturing process is essential. Basic lube oil formulations containing only P, S, Ca and Zn are often augmented with additional elements and additives to create lubricating oils for specific needs. A fast, simple method of analyzing lube oils is important throughout the QC/QA process. Rigaku meets this industry need with a high performance low cost benchtop EDXRF system. Rugged and reliable, the NEX QC+ is an ideal tool for elemental analysis, with simple and intuitive software for the non-technical operator.
