Lubricant Testing Monitoring and Analysis


With a heavy focus on the testing, monitoring and analysis of hydrocarbons including downstream oil products, chemicals and petrochemicals, PEFTEC 2017 (Antwerp, 29-30th November) represents a unique opportunity for professionals in the lubricants sector to learn about the latest regulations, analytical methods and technologies that elate to the testing of lubricant and oil quality, as well as the monitoring of environmental emissions from production plants.


“Covering testing in the laboratory, in the field and on-site, PEFTEC will appeal to any organisation with an interest in lubricant and oil quality, including the automotive and industrial sectors and those involved with metal-working fluids, greases, and base oils. This will include anyone responsible for lubricant testing, oil condition monitoring and quality control for engines and drive-trains, generators, offshore platforms, turbines, ships, trains, and other high value assets,” comments PEFTEC organiser Marcus Pattison. “There will be four specialist Conferences and a major international Exhibition featuring over 150 companies, for which entry is free following pre-registration at www.peftec.com. A visit to the Exhibition therefore represents a great opportunity to see some of the latest technologies for lubricant testing and to discuss them with some of the world’s leading experts.”


Conferences will address themes such as oil analysis, environmental monitoring, methane measurement and safety issues in hazardous situations. The exhibition will feature some of the latest technologies in viscosity and colour measurement, particle counting, wear metal analysis, titration methods, elemental analysers and much more.


The PEFTEC two day analytical conference is divided into 4 half-day themed sessions which are planned to allow delegates with particular technique interests to cover their topic of interest in the conference whilst also consulting the wide range of relevant instrument manufacturers and providers in the exhibition. The Analytical Techniques sessions will discuss the latest developments and trends in analysis in the petrochemical industries through presentations from leading academic and industry experts.


The morning session on Day 1 will cover Elemental Analysis and Speciation including trace metal analysis and the speciation of mercury, phosphorus, arsenic and oxygen compounds in a range of petrochemical samples. The afternoon session of day 1 will be dedicated to the latest developments in Mass Spectrometry. The increased availability of affordable, reliable and easy to operate high resolution mass spectrometers when combined with sample ionisation techniques which offer a degree of chemical selectivity has led to a recent dramatic rise in the use of these techniques. In this session, leading researchers in this field from academia and industry will cover all of the main techniques and their application.

technique in the industry and the application of multidimensional GC techniques will be covered in the first 2 presentations, followed by a talk on the application of in silico modelling of GC separations. The remainder of the session will cover the application of SFC and HPLC and their combinations to achieve improved separations.


The final afternoon session will cover spectroscopic techniques and on-line analysis, focusing on the rapid rise of Vacuum Ultra-Violet Spectroscopy (VUV) in the industry. VUV is a selective and sensitive detector for hydrocarbon analysis which in a relatively brief time has been widely accepted by the industry and in combination with GC has recently been approved as an ASTM method for the analysis of finished gasoline (ASTM D8071). The application of thermo-gravimetric analysis coupled with infra-red spectroscopy (TGA-IR) for fouling deposit analysis and the application of comprehensive two dimensional GC for on-line analysis will complete the session and the analytical technique conference.
