Oil Analysis — The Basics

Lube oil is the life-blood of machinery. Much like doctors assess our health though blood analysis, critical plant equipment must be monitored in much the same manner. Chronic lubricant or equipment symptoms show up as indicators in oil analysis samples and, if left uncorrected, can lead to equipment degradation and lost productivity. Therefore, the goal of a proactive oil analysis program is to trend gradual changes in fluid properties, contaminants and wear debris so that corrective action can be initiated in a controlled, planned manner.

Oil Analysis Benefits Include:

  • Optimum Equipment Life
  • Extended Oil Life
  • Reduced Downtime
  • Improved Safety
  • Environmental Awareness
