Determination of volatile organic compounds in automotive lubricants
Determination of volatile organic compounds in lubricants allows for the identification of contaminants that impair the working of vehicles and machines.
IPT determines these compounds using headspace gas chromatography, whereby a comparative analysis is made through mass spectrometry to identify volatile organic compounds present in larger quantities in the lubricant.
The Institute also identifies contaminants in suspended solids using infrared spectrophotometry.
