Oil Analysis

Oil Analysis of engine, transmission, and hydraulic oils allow you to recognize probable problems before a major repair are necessary. Oil analysis also may help you decrease the frequency of oil changes and increase the resale value of the used equipment. 

So, what is oil analysis all about?

  • An oil analysis will tell you a lot about how the equipment is being used.
  • What is the present condition of the equipment? 
  • A typical oil analysis can show the presence of contaminants.
  • It can also tell you if you have been using the suitable lubricants. 
  • Fuel dilution in lubrication oil, 
  • External Dust Entry, 
  • Antifreeze in the oil & 
  • Excessive bearing wear. 

Oil analysis can also show some important parameters like 

Analyzing oil samples on a regular basis helps to establish a baseline of the normal wear and can highlight incidences of abnormal wear or cases of contamination thus preventing a breakdown and allowing corrective action before catastrophic failure occurs. This is the major advantage of an oil analysis program being able to predict problems and plan repair work to maintain Uptime of the equipment.
