Simple Lubricant Additive Package Quality Control Using HDXRF

Additives can make up as much as 30% of lubricants and often contain elements such as phosphorus, calcium, and zinc. Learn how Petra MAX, XRF elemental analyzer, can help you ensure that blended lubricants meet required specifications.

Lubricants are comprised of base oil and an additive package. Additives can make up as much as 30% of the formulated lubricant and often contain elements such as phosphorus (P), calcium (Ca), and zinc (Zn). Industry experts have long used a simple analysis technique called X-ray fluorescence (XRF) to measure these elements and ensure that blended lubricants meet the required specifications.
