The 100 micron transmission cell is the current method of choice for automated FT-IR analysis of lubricating and hydraulic oils. The transmission cell requires cleaning after each sample and thus use of a solvent. This paper outlines the preliminary results of a comparison between the 100 micron cell and the 3Mcopyright IR Card microporous polyethylene substrate. Petroleum and polyol ester lubricating oils were used in the study. Statistical results and problems encountered are presented.
