Phosphate antiwear additive depletion monitoring in lubrication oil by direct trending

Antioxidants are added to lubrication oil to delay oxidation and its effects. Monitoring the antioxidant concentration according to ASTM D7412 with Lyza 7000 leads to less downtime of the machinery and makes necessary oil changes plannable.

Oxidation is a common wear and tear effect during the life of lubrication oil.
In order to prolongate the lifetime, antioxidants are added to lubrication oils.
The key to employ a lubrication oil as long as possible, and to replace it when necessary, is to monitor the antiwear component levels with FTIR spectroscopy.
