Oil Analysis Lab

Our fluid analysis program is the best defense for maintaining and protecting your equipment.

1979

ý’s oil analysis lab has been in use since 1979 to help diagnose the internal condition of oil-wetted components and provide valuable information about lubricant serviceability. With 43 years of experience in sampling oil, you can count on ý to give you the best service available for all your sample needs.

What is Oil Analysis?

Oil analysis is a diagnostic science that helps to determine the wear and performance conditions of internal, oil-wetted components such as engines, transmissions, and hydraulic systems. From the crude visual checks performed in the 1940s to today’s sophisticated analysis methods via spectrophotometer, oil analysis helps owners, field managers, and operators increase their equipment’s life span and control operational costs. Little doubt remains today that a comprehensive oil analysis program is one of the most effective preventative maintenance tools available.

Benefits

Discover the Benefits of Oil Analysis

Almost any piece of equipment with a lubrication system can be placed on an oil analysis program. Those components whose performance directly affects the continued operation of a particular unit or the overall profitability of a business are the most likely candidates for routine oil analysis.

Improved Operational Safety

Untimely failures can lead to unpredictable machine operation, creating a higher potential for unsafe working conditions.

Greater Component Life Span

Maximize the life of your machine’s components by monitoring routine wear of internal parts and noticing problems before they become catastrophic.

Fewer Failures & Repairs

Reliability and efficiency go hand-in-hand on any job site. Unplanned downtime and frequent repairs will quickly erode the reliability of your equipment.

Improved Cost Assessment

Reduced repair costs, planned downtime, extended component life, improved maintenance, maximum safety and productivity, and the most cost-effective operation of your equipment – you get it all with regular oil analysis!
