Oil Analysis Services
Oil Analysis is the analysis of a particular lubricant’s properties, suspended contaminants, and wears debris conducted by technicians within a laboratory. The testing of used oil and grease determines the wear characteristics of equipment, and measures the efficiency of the lubrication of internal components. Routine testing and analysis is performed on Lubricating Oils, Hydraulic Oils, Coolants and fuels. Oil Analysis also provides information about the condition of its engine or other oil filled compartments and what sort of repairs may be necessary in the near future.
Component wear trends can be established through regular analysis of used oil from engines, transmissions, hydraulic systems, compressors and other machinery. It can be used to indicate and identify any irregular working conditions and locate the causes. The appropriate corrective actions can then be planned and implemented.
Scientific testing of used oil and grease determines the wear characteristics of equipment, and measures the efficiency of the lubrication of internal components.
Regular analysis of used oil from engines, transmissions, hydraulic systems, compressors and other machinery allows component wear trends to be established. Information from oil tests to identify any abnormal working conditions and pinpoint the likely causes, for which corrective actions can be planned.
How Techenomics Oil Sampling is conducted
Samples are taken and sent to the Techenomics Laboratory where investigations and reporting are performed. Reports are then sent via email to the client. Reporting provides a breakdown of each breached element in wear metals, contaminants, additives and the physical properties of oils, coolants and fuels.
Oil Analysis is a preventative maintenance tool that is an essential and cost effective maintenance measure. It contributes to significant reduction in ongoing maintenance costs on plant and equipment. Oil Analysis reduces equipment downtime, increases component life and eliminates unnecessary oil changes.
Results of magnetic plug inspections can be examined and compared over time to determine wear patterns and enable technicians to predict when oil will need to be replaced. This can be used to establish the most effective regular maintenance routine.
Techenomics is a local lubrication and condition monitoring specialised Company that operates throughout Australia, Asia and in Madagascar. Techenomics laboratories have certified technicians who are able to analyse lubricant samples from many different sources including mining companies, power stations, agricultural machinery, paper mills, sea, road and rail freight. Techenomics has the capability to perform analysis on a wide range of liquid fuels, lubricants and associated products.
