Oil Analysis paves the way for Preventive Maintenance Strategies

Apr 1, 2014 | condition monitoring, oil analysis, predictive maintenance, preventative maintenance

Oil Analysis is the analytical results of a lubricant’s property, suspended contaminants and wear debris. The analysis provides information on friction, lubrication and wear. Major types of wear include abrasion, friction, adhesion, cohesion, erosion and corrosion.

Oil Analysis is performed during routine Preventive Maintenance to provide meaningful and accurate information on lubricants and the machine condition. Oil Analysis is the best tool to penetrate into the working heart of the equipment to reveal vital information about its condition and performance.
