Abstract:

This paper discusses the implementation and progress of Fourier transform infrared FT-IR spectroscopy in the U.S. Army Oil Analysis Program AOAP. Improvements in the basic FT-IR method, the addition of new analysis capabilities and the impact FT-IR has made on AOAP are presented-expansion of FT-IR to cover hydraulic fluids petroleum and phosphate ester fluids, new fuel analysis procedures and new cleaning solvent option. The implementation of FT-IR in the Army enabled the return of previously removed aircraft equipment ODDS to the AOAP.
