25 NACE INTERNATIONAL: VOL. 56, NO. 5 MATERIALS PERFORMANCE MAY 2017 certifications and service demands. With that in mind, coatings and corrosion engi- neering group KTA-Tator, Inc. (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) is offering a free program to help manage this responsibility. "We understand how tedious it is for inspec- tors, industrial painters, manufacturers, and facility owners to track the status of their inspection equipment, so we're taking on that burden for them," says Matthew Fajt, vice president and instru- ment sales manager at KTA. "Whether the equipment inventory consists of one gauge or 1,000, we are assisting our cus- tomers in handling this important task." To enroll in this program, users do not need to have purchased equipment through KTA.

New capabilities are included in both the SpectrOil 100 and SpectrOil M models for the elemental analysis of oil, fuel, coolant, and water. The technolog y measures trace quantities of elements dissolved or sus- pended as fine particles in natural or syn- thetic petroleum-based products. The ver- sion offers both stability improvements and an enhanced user experience, while new signal processing methods improve short- and long-term stability. A fully inte- grated standardization procedure facili- tates calibration and standardization, resulting in easier, faster operations. Meanwhile, an improved background measurement method enables lower lim- its of detection in field applications and includes temperature and background measurement corrections that eliminate restandardization. Signal processing is improved for field applications involving trace elements.
