Abstract : A method is described for the determination of MIL-L-23699C synthetic lubricant contamination of 3-GP-26Ma hydraulic fluid. The method utilizes capillary gas chromatographic separation of the constituents of these fluids and quadrupole mass spectrometic detection of these fluids and quadrupole mass spectrometric detection of these constituents. The analysis takes 25 minutes and the lower limit of detection is 0.4 nanograms (ng) of MIL-L-23699C with a linear response range up to at least 4000 ng depending on the instrumental parameters used.
