Measurement of Soot Content in Engine Oil by ATR Method of Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) Spectroscopy

Increased soot content in engine oil may reduce lubrication performance or form an abrasive substance that damages plastic parts. For this reason, the soot content in engine is an indicator of the timing of engine oil changes. ASTM E2412-10 provides a method for condition monitoring of the soot content of lubricants by Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy.
In this article, we introduce a technique for soot content measurement by using a Shimadzu ATR measurement attachment that allows simple cleaning of the sample stage to enable efficient measurement work.
