Abstract

A RECENT meeting of the Society of Automotive Engineers at St. Louis reviewed operations of Diesel Engines in Industry and opened with a presentation of technical papers outlining progress in the use of the spectrograph and electron microscope for studying the condition of new and used oils, particularly additive containing oils. Three papers were presented as follows :—“An Electron looks at Detergent Oils” by John L. Broughten of the Union Oil Co., California; “Diesel Maintenance Control by Spectrographic Means” by H. R. Sennstrom (Research and Testing Engineer of American Locomotive Company); “Practical Use of the Spectrograph and Electron Microscope for Study of Diesel Engine Conditions” by Ray McBrian and L. C. Atchison, both of the Denver & Rio Grande Western Railroad Co. The following are the main points made in these papers.
