The Air Force, Navy and Army have for many years employed spectrometric analysis of used lubricating oil as an aid in tracking the servicability of many types of equipment. Virtually all types of equipment with oil-wetted surfaces are covered by this (tri-service) Joint Oil Analysis Program (JOAP). As an oil-wetted surface wears, it is possible that small amounts of the metals contacted will be suspended in the oil medium. Thus, if the lubricating oil is periodically submitted to a spectrometric analysis, the resulting traces of metallic contaminants may be expected to provide information about the amount of wear suffered. Each type of equipment monitored by the program has a specified rate at which sampling is accomplished, typically based on the number of hours of use or on the number of miles travelled.
