“Oil analysis determines the condition of both lubricant and machine and completes MCIS’s tool-box of maintenance aids.”
Oil analysis involves the taking of samples from the
lubricating systems of the machines and carrying out a series of tests to determine the condition and integrity of the lubricant as well as identifying the types and quantities of wear metals being generated by the moving components. Tests carried out on the oil samples include Spectrometric Analysis, Water Content, Viscosity, Oxidation, Wear Debris
Analysis, Wear Particle Concentration and Particle Count.
