Abstract : A new method for the analysis of wear metals in lubricating oils which utilizes a modified Babington Principle nebulizer is compared to two other existing methods. The new method is found to be faster and more convenient than the others. When compared to the results from an existing solvent dilution method, the results from the new method show a stronger correlation to those of a reference method. (Author)
