Turbine Lubricant Assessment (TLA®)

The Turbine Lubricant Assessment® is the centerpiece of Bureau Veritas’ VitalPoint® turbine oil analysis program. The TLA combines the entire condition monitoring test suite outlined in ASTM’s D4278 and incorporates new tests designed to measure oxidation stability, anti-oxidant remaining useful life and varnish potential. Test data is then summarized in a custom report that includes detailed maintenance recommendations, charts and graphs to allow for simple interpretation and corrective action.
