SampleSense Oil for Ultra-high Throughput Oil Analysis

The SampleSense Oil system provides ultra-high throughput analysis for in-service oil laboratories running ASTM Method D5185. SampleSense Oil combines ultra-high throughput ICP analysis, minimizes ICP system maintenance, maximizes profit per sample and provides significantly improved data.

Benefits

  • Reduces carbon buildup on torch
  • Maximizes profit per sample
  • Eliminates oil drips from sample probe
  • Improves stability for longer, more productive runs
  • Up to 180 samples per hour

Features

  • SampleSense optically monitored sample loading
    • Fully automated sample loading – no timings required
    • Automatically adjusts for samples of varying viscosity
  • DXCi Autocorrecting Autosampler intelligently autocorrects probe position
  • Gas infusion mixing provides rapidly controlled sample homogenization
  • Patent-pending probe design that eliminates sample drips
Innovative Sample Loading

Innovative Sample Loading

SampleSense accounts for viscosity and automatically adjusts timing. One method for multiple sample types.

Time Savings

Time Savings

Operator time for sample introduction method development is eliminated. Just run samples.

Sample Savings

Sample Savings

The sample is injected at precisely the right time. Every time. Even for small samples.

Error Notification

Error Notification

Incomplete sample loading or bubbles in the sample are detected and logged.

SampleSense Oil is available for several ICP systems

SampleSense Oil combines the DXCi Autocorrecting Autosampler with SampleSense technology to fully automate the sample loading process. After the sample is mixed within the sample tube, the unique SampleSense valve automatically detects the presence of the sample as it is quickly loaded from the autosampler. Once the sample loop fill is confirmed by the sensors, the sample is automatically injected and the ICP analysis is triggered for a tightly timed analytical sequence.

Ease of Use

  • Automatically triggers ICP data acquisition at the correct time for each sample
  • Built-in error reporting detects and records missed samples
  • Unique probe design and application of vacuum to probe during movements eliminates oil drips
  • Probe is automatically rinsed in solvent after each sample uptake

Robust Operation & High Throughput

  • Optical sensors in the valve automatically adjust loop load time and inject sample as soon as the loop is full
  • Samples load correctly even with partial clogs or other physical changes (i.e. varying sample viscosity)
  • DXCi autocorrecting Autosampler reaches the correct vial, even if temporarily obstructed
  • Low sample consumption allows a sample tube to be analyzed more than once if needed
