Rotrode Emission Spectrometer

Rotrode Emission Spectrometer (RotrOil)

Latest generation and most advanced version of the traditional Rotrode Emission Spectrometer, the perfect spectrometer for the in-service oil analysis laboratory.

Thanks to the new compact design it’s a very strong and reliable unit, able to be moved and transported to different locations where the analysis must be taken.

R3 RotrOil spectrometer instrument is a compact, transportable and easy to use optical emission spectrometer designed specifically to determine trace concentration in wear metals, polluting materials and additives in lubricating oils, transmission and refrigerating liquids.


R3 RotrOil spectrometer is complaint to the requirements of the ASTM D6595-00 Standard Test Method for determination of Wear Metals and Contaminants in used lubricating oils or used hydraulical fluids by Rotating Disc Electrode Atomic Emission spectrometry. 

R3 RotrOil Instrument is available in two different versions, the first one is the more compact one (as showed in the picture on the left), the second one is with PC included with touch screen management, in general preferred in the Military domain (picture available in the brochure).
