Maximizing the Value of Oil Analysis and Equipment Condition Information

Oil analysis is a cost effective maintenance tool for power generation and manufacturing plants, chemical and processing plants, over-the-road trucking fleets, off-road construction equipment, aircraft and refrigeration systems. Any piece of equipment that has a lubricating system is a potential candidate for oil analysis.

But a successful oil analysis program requires an organized and sustained effort. Both the user and the laboratory must work closely together to lay the appropriate groundwork and maintain consistency and commitment to the program to achieve the desired results.

It clearly illustrates how routine testing and acting on the laboratory’s diagnostic recommendations helped maintenance personnel at a chemical processing plant avoid the costly replacement of critical propane delivery pump.
