Fuel analysis spectrometer on the Queen Mary II

Wednesday, 20 April, 2005


The Spectroil M/F Fuel Analysis Spectrometer will be used on the Queen Mary II cruise ship to monitor the quality of the fuel in the aero-derivative gas turbines used aboard the ship for propulsion.

Fuel quality varies throughout the world and ash-forming contaminants, often present, lead to corrosion and harmful deposits in gas turbines. The Spectroil M/F analyses the fuel to determine the presence of contaminants and their concentration in order to establish if preconditioning is required. The data is then used to determine the amount of treatment required and the effectiveness of that treatment.

The Spectroil M/F rapidly analyses fuels ranging from distillates to heavy residuals without any sample preparation. It is also easy to operate, rugged, continuously available for analysis, and conforms to ASTM International Standard Test Method D6728 for immediate confirmation of sodium, potassium, vanadium, lead, calcium, and magnesium concentrations in fuels.
