Gauge the health of your critical assets by analysing the lifeblood of your machinery

Oil Analysis is a proven technique for accurately predicting component wear and lubrication life in your machinery to determine its exact condition. It works by gathering a small sample of oil from an operating piece of machinery and performing a number of physical and chemical tests on the sample to determine the condition of the lubricant, the level of contaminants in the oil, and the health of the machine.

As a result of tracking and comparing oil analysis samples over the life of a particular machine, trends can be established which can help eliminate costly repairs. With a critical machine failure potentially costing thousands of pounds per hour in lost production time and repairs, can you really afford not to monitor the lifeblood of your equipment?
