HVAC and Building Maintenance

Oil Condition Monitoring (OCM) and HVAC Fluid Analysis is an investment in building maintenance that provides a safe and comfortable environment for you, your employees and your business operations.

Equipment Types & Test Packages



Regardless of purpose and usage, the primary reason for testing generator engine and cooling system fluids is to avoid unplanned downtime with wear and contamination being the biggest concerns.

Fuel Storage Tanks

Comprehensive testing identifies the need for purification, fortification of antioxidant additives and/or the addition of microbiological controls.



As more than half of the bearing failures that occur within chiller systems are due to lubrication issues, oil analysis is a critical part of a good maintenance program.


Rotary Screw, Reciprocating & Centrifugal Compressors

Monitoring compressor oil contamination and component wear should include testing viscosity, total acid number, particle count, water separability and analytical ferrography to effectively predict component failure.

Oil Analysis for HVAC and Building MaintenanceWithout an effective oil condition monitoring (ocm) program, systems and equipment vital to your infrastructure can fail, employees can’t do their jobs and your everyday operations are placed at risk.

Bureau Veritas offers a full range of oil and fluid analysis services and oil condition monitoring (ocm) for effectively monitoring critical component and machine fluid condition – whether that equipment is used for supplying building power, heating or cooling (HVAC).

To protect cooling and refrigeration systems from contamination and failure, lubricant properties within compressors need to be maintained within extremely close tolerances. The presence of even miniscule contaminants could mean the difference between safe, reliable operations and catastrophic failure. With Bureau Veritas’ refrigeration and HVAC fluid analysis programs and oil condition monitoring (ocm), you can be confident that the condition of your equipment – or the equipment you service – is within safe operating ranges and that the proper, specified lubrication is taking place, allowing you to schedule cost-effective maintenance events.
