Lubricant and Fluid Analysis
Equipment reliability and performance are paramount to your company’s productivity, competitiveness, and profitability. The benefits of lubricant and fluid analysis far outweigh the cost of testing and span beyond productivity and reliability. By implementing effective oil analysis and PM programs, owners and operators can also expect lower maintenance and repair costs, lower replacement costs, higher quality output, improved safety, a greener option, increased equipment lifespan, improve customer satisfaction, and lower total cost of ownership.
Monitoring and analyzing oils for characteristics such as wear particles, contamination, chemical composition, and viscosity are vital to improving equipment reliability. Oil analysis provides critical early warning information indicative of excessive wear, contamination, or impending machine failure. Analyzing trending data monitors wear that is unique to each of your assets.
A key component in condition-based maintenance programs, oil analysis is a cost-effective tool that is both proactive and predictive. A properly implemented lubricant and fluid analysis program can help optimize productivity and ROI.
Reduce Failure Rates
Proactive maintenance saves money by finding root causes and reducing the rates of failure.
Identifying root causes eliminates guesswork and potential costly mistakes.
Once identified, root causes can be more easily and cost-effectively controlled or corrected.
Lowered rates of failures means more uptime.
Proactive measures that control root causes or forcing functions can also extend the life of components or assets.
Reduce the Impact or Severity of Failures
Predictive maintenance saves money by reducing the impact or severity of a failure.
Early corrective actions can be taken to reduce wear or the severity of the failure and reduce equipment downtime.
Minimizing wear will reduce cost and time required for repair and replacement of parts.
Unscheduled outages are avoided when maintenance and parts replacement are planned ahead rather than done when equipment suddenly fails.
By reducing the severity of a failure, chain reaction failures are avoided or minimized.
Forecasting service and parts replacements can lower costs and improve budget management.
Optimize Your Performance and ROI
Extended oil drain intervals based on condition monitoring decreases new lubricant costs, servicing costs, and disposal costs.
Oil analysis can assist in identifying operation-related causes of failures or chronic issues. These causes include delivery of unclean or wrong oil, improper storage practices, design defects, misapplications, and improper operation of equipment.
Optimally running equipment helps your company meet or exceed customer expectations on production, quality and delivery.
Properly lubricated and maintained assets use less energy.
Maximizing lubricant useful life is environmentally friendly.
Optimized maintenance can extend the life of your equipment.
Optimally maintained equipment has higher resale value.
