Oil is a commonly used material which is essential for mankind’s activity. Thus, it is necessary to measure and control oil content for its effective use. HORIBA’s OCMA-500 series and OCMA-550 series have achieved easy and accurate measurements by extracting oil to a solvent. In this article, we introduce some applications of oil extraction and measurement using OCMA-550 series, discussing the significance of each case. Specifically four difficult samples that require special technique for the extraction, which are oil in soil, residual oil on metal parts after being cut, residual oil on surgical instruments and oil in rice (rice balls from a store), are shown with detailed explanation regarding the setting of extraction time and removal of detergent-like substances.
