Oil Analysis

Oil is the life blood of a machine. By testing for wear, contaminants and chemistry we can identify changes occurring with machinery.

What is Oil Analysis?

Oil analysis is the laboratory analysis of an oil’s properties, suspended contaminants and wear debris. It is an effective, inexpensive tool which provides information about the internal condition of the major components in vehicles and equipment. Fluids analysis is the best way to detect and measure contaminants in your machines’ components, which will head off problems before they result in major expenses.

Taking samples regularly is critical because it allows for accurate interpretation. While a single sample may spot contamination or a rapidly progressing failure, only several samples taken at regular intervals will establish trends.
