Analyse the lifeblood of your Equipment

Oil analysis 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 extend equipment life and eliminate costly repairs. Virtually any industry that operates mechanical equipment can benefit from oil analysis.

Whether it’s oil from a critical or noncritical rotating asset, regular sampling can provide a wealth of information about the health of both the machine and the lubricant.

With a critical machine failure potentially costing thousands of pounds per hour in downtime, can you really afford not to monitor the lifeblood of your equipment?
