Used Oil Analysis Trending Analysis

Benefits of Used Oil Monitoring System

  • Stop costly abrasion and wear
  • Stop coolant leaks
  • Detect and measure fuel dilution
  • Verify warranty problems
  • Prevents costly downtime with resulting inconvenience
  • Spot operator abuse
  • Allows preventative maintenance to be carried out
  • Monitor filtration systems
  • Determine your best oil change intervals
  • Extend equipment life
  • Increase equipment trade-in value
  • Stop progressive damage and breakdowns

Why Oil Analysis and Testing?

Oil analysis of lubricants is a vital tool in avoiding costly failures and ensuring a long life for your machinery and equipment.

The four main components of condition monitoring are:

  • Analysis for wear metals to provide an indication of the mechanical condition of the unit and allow early detection of faults.
  • Physical testing to detect the presence of contaminants which can indicate problems (eg. Fuel or water in engine oil and/or cross contamination of lubricants). Test cleanliness of oils to ISO 4406 and NAS 1638.
  • Assessment of the condition of the oil to estimate it’s remaining service life and allow cost effective top up rather than an unnecessary oil change.
  • Analysis of the oil to ensure the correct type and grade have been used and that the appropriate additives are present

Cost Saving through Oil Analysis and Testing

Oil is the lifeblood of all machinery and can tell you so much about its condition – why not get a “health check” right now.

The small cost of regular oil condition monitoring is a very worthwhile investment to protect expensive machinery and equipment.

In short, if it has anything to do with oil, lubrication or wear, we can help.

Many organisations make use of a Used Oil Analysis programme or Used Oil Trending Analysis. It is generally used as part of a maintenance programme and is used for a rage of equipment types like:

  • Aero Engines
  • Air and Refrigeration Compressors
  • Electric Oil Systems
  • Gas Compressors
  • Gas Engines
  • Gas and Steam Turbines
  • Gearboxes and Transmissions
  • Heat Transfer and Heat Treatment Systems
  • Hydraulic Systems
  • Large Grease Lubricated Bearings
  • Marine Engines
  • Power Generator Engines
  • Pumps
  • Truck and Bus Engines
  • Stern Tubes
