PCOSv1 incorporates Inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES) providing simultaneous analysis of trace elements in a range of samples. The vertical torch orientation system delivers excellent robustness for both radial and dual view instruments with a corrosion-resistant inner torch box. The purged echelle polychromator and Charge Injection Device (CID) array detector provide high light throughput, resulting in excellent detection limits.
ICP-OES is the technique of choice for many different applications, including those in the environmental, metallurgical, geological, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, materials, and food safety arenas. The advantages of using ICP-OES over other elemental analysis techniques such as inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) or atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS) include its wide linear dynamic range, high matrix tolerance, and the enhanced speed of analysis that can be achieved.
PCOSv1 monitors state of the machinery using its fluid. It measures the quantity and quality of the particles present in it in real-time.
PCOSv1 acquires and automatically processes the high-resolution images of a fluid and detects, quantifies and classifies the particles by size and/or shape. PCOSv1 is capable of distinguishing these particles from air bubbles.
PCOSv1 provides the following:
- Degradation of the oil
- Counting of particles >14µ
- Counting of particles >4µ
- ISO 4406 certified
- Recognition of shapes >20µ
- Classification of particles by type >20µ
- Recovery of images (advanced analysis)
PCOSv1 determines the state of degradation of the lubricating oil and detects the problems of contamination and wear before they occur or can produce a problem in the machine. It is therefore possible to avoid high operational costs and to minimize the environmental impact.
PCOSv1 provides a measurement which gives a precise indication of the state of the oil in the different stages of its useful life: from the time it is recently supplied, until it has to be replaced due to oil degradation.
Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) is an analytical technique used to identify organic, polymeric, and, in some cases, inorganic materials. The FTIR analysis method uses infrared light to scan test samples and observe chemical properties.
- Identify and characterize unknown materials (e.g., films, solids, powders, or liquids).
- Identify contamination on or in a material (e.g., particles, fibers, powders, or liquids).
- Identify additives after extraction from a polymer matrix.
- Identify oxidation, decomposition, or uncured monomers in failure analysis investigations.
PCOSv1 uses in built artificial intelligence to compile reports and has the ability to create notifications in real-time to minimize flow.
Detailed reports and accountability creating a synergy between PCOSv1 and the maintenance department whilst maintaining the highest level of quality standards.
Line-of-fire Elimination - Eliminate the likeliness of personnel becoming exposed to possible hazards by implementing tooling to remove them from harms way. Next generation tooling such as gear pump stations to stroke actuators without the use of the HME to purge and pin cylinders, Bluetooth pressure transducers to read system pressures remotely from the machine, remote mounted heads for relief valve adjustments
Friction Identification - Thermal imaging recording to identify “hot spots” - the immediate identifier of limited lubrication.
Resolving issues before costly line boring and downtime ensue.
Vibration Testing - Reduce component failure through imbalance and thrusting forces by logging resonance of vibration.
Driveshaft imbalance can be identified and rectified before costly and/or catastrophic failure.
