FAST. TRUSTED. RELIABLE.OIL ANALYSIS SERVICE

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?

PROTECTING YOUR CRITICAL ASSETSBENEFITS

Whatever your industry, there are many benefits to implementing a managed oil analysis programme and performing regular oil analysis on your most critical assets.

Improve Reliability

Increase the reliability and availability of your machinery with an effective and hassle free oil analysis program.

Maintain Productivity

Keep your critical equipment in peak condition and running as smoothly and efficiently as possible.

Reduce Operating costs

Identify potential issues early and avoid costly downtime and catastrophic failure by performing regular analysis.

Pinpoint Problems

Regular oil analysis will identify any minor problems early to avoid them escalating into major repairs.

Schedule Maintenance

Schedule maintenance procedures around your analysis results to avoid unexpected downtime – saving you money!

Extend Service Life

Regular oil analysis keeps your machine operational and oil cleaner for longer.

HOW IT WORKSOUR SERVICE

Our in-house oil analysis laboratory complies with ISO 9001:2008 standards, therefore you are guaranteed a quality, consistent and certified service that is always striving for perfection. We process over 50,000 oil samples each year and aim for a 1-3 business day turnaround in order for you to make time-critical decisions.

MAKE OIL ANALYSIS PART OF YOUR MAINTENANCE STRATEGY

Our managed oil analysis service takes support to a higher level from routine analysis and reporting. It becomes part of your organisation's maintenance strategy.

NEXT GENERATION WEB-BASED REPORTING PLATFORMINTRODUCING OMEGA

The success of any oil analysis programme is dependent on how well the oil analysis data is managed. Many companies use traditional reporting methods – such as paper reports and emailed PDFs – to interpret the results of their oil analysis samples, consequently data can easily be lost or even stolen.

With overwhelming amounts of data building up over time, extracting the right information and comparing sample results can be a timely and costly process.

That’s why we have developed OMEGA – our unique web based oil analysis reporting platform. It gives you access to oil analysis data 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from any device connected to the internet. Your sampling data is safe, secure and can be assessed by multiple users.
