Portable FTIR Oil Analysis in Seconds


The first truly portable stand-alone analyzer with a patented rugged FTIR spectrometer for high-speed lubricant oil condition monitoring in full compliance with ASTM, DIN and JOAP methods. With its lightweight build and compact footprint, it is a welcome addition to mobile laboratories to automatically deliver a detailed finger-print of used oil on-site and check for degradation and contamination within seconds.


Fingerprint your oil in seconds




Oxidation, Nitration, Sulphate, Ester breakdown, Phosphate Antiwear Additive and Antioxidant depletion




Soot, Water, Glycol (Antifreeze), Gasoline, Diesel Fuel


Calculated properties (MLR, Cluster analysis):


TAN (Total Acid number), TBN (Total Base Number), Viscosity & Viscosity Index @ 40 °C and 100 °C


All this with a portable analyzer in full compliance with the latest standards such as ASTM E2412, ASTM D7412, D7414, D7415, D7418, D7624, JOAP, DIN 51452, DIN 51453


Portable Stand-Alone Operation


ERASPEC OIL is the first truly portable stand-alone FTIR oil analyzer on the market. It is the ideal solution for on-site measurements, as it provides immediate feedback about the status of the oil also in remote areas, where avoiding equipment breakdown is most critical. With its compact (weighing just 8 kg / 17.6 lb) and rugged design (full metal housing) the ERASPEC OIL brings lab quality results to the field. Its built-in industry PC and the large full color touch screen allow the direct display of the oil spectra as graphic chart. Like this spectra can immediately be analyzed and compared with other spectra, as several thousand spectra can be saved in the internal instrument memory.

Oil spectra as graphic chart on display


  • View Spectra – over 3.000 oil spectra can be saved in the internal memory of ERASPEC OIL. They can easily be viewed and analyzed directly on the large color touch screen of ERASPEC OIL without the need of a PC or an external software


  • Compare Spectra – up to 4 oil spectra can be viewed upon each other for convenient comparison


  • Analyse Spectra – single peaks can be analyzed in detail using the zoom function


Performance You Can Rely On

Fast & Easy Operation


All eralytics analyzers use an intuitive menu structure that is easy to navigate. Samples need no prior preparation and measurements are done fully automated.


The results are displayed immediately after the test on the large and user-friendly color touch screen. The internal memory holds thousands of measurement results. For convenience, data can be directly saved to USB memory sticks for further processing or a thorough analysis. The data format is compatible with most PC spreadsheets, such as Microsoft© Excel. Customized print-out designs are available for easy direct printing.


Oil testing in three easy steps with the ERASPEC OIL


  • Select/enter the Sample ID and the Operator
  • Put the inlet tube into the sample
  • Press RUN to start the fully automated measurement


ERASOFT RCS – Remote Control PC software 


The RCS software is the ideal tool for operating one or more ERASPEC OIL instruments via a PC. As an alternative to LIMS, it allows for convenient data transfer and fast analysis of results and spectra


  • Multi-instrument networking
  • Convenient analysis and comparison of OIL spectra
  • Fast & easy data transfer (results, spectra, settings, libraries, etc.)
  • Software up-grade
  • Backup/restore the configuration and unit parameters


Compact Stand-Alone Analyzer


All eralytics instruments are compact stand-alone analyzers with a built-in industrial PC. They represent the latest in technology, designed for longterm, maintenance-free operation. Of course, all eralytics analyzers use cutting-edge industry technology and provide universal data transfer options. Ethernet and USB interfaces allow advanced data management and connectivity to PCs, modern printers, keyboards, PC-mice, barcode readers, or other external equipment.


Direct LIMS Communication


A direct out-of-the-box connection to LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System) is established with a standard Ethernet cable. No extra software or PC is needed.


True Portability


The small footprint of the eralytics instruments makes them the first choice for use in the lab and on-site. Lightweight and built with an integrated carrying handle they are ideally suited for mobile applications.


Large Results Memory


Data are stored safely in the large results memory, which holds many thousand records. Six user levels and a state-of-the-art password technology protect your test result data from accidental deletion.


Service and Remote Control over the Internet


At the push of a button, firmware and software updates can be downloaded from the internet. The internet connection also allows to remotely control eralytics analyzers or to perform standard service activities.


Due to continuing product development, specifications are subject to change. All eralytics products are manufactured under ISO 9001 regulations and are CE compliant.
