When to Use Oil Analysis

Proper oil sampling and analyzing at regular intervals creates a baseline of normal wear and tear which may help point out when abnormal wear and contamination may be occurring. Wear is normal, but abnormal levels of a particular material can give an early warning of threatening problems and possibly prevent a major breakdown. It can also provide insight to help determine the proper oil drain intervals.

The main purpose of oil is to prevent wear, while using the proper oil analysis program can help you achieve this.

Are you wondering if an oil analysis could be right for your equipment? Consider this testing as a way to spot problems as they begin to develop. By addressing these issues at an early stage, you decrease the chances of your equipment having a breakdown.
