Oil is the lifeline for machines & equipment’s. Just like routine blood check up for humans gives an idea about the health of a person, analysis of oil at regular intervals gives an idea about the health of the equipment or machine from time to time.
We cannot really look into our equipment’s, a very successful & proven way of looking what has been happening inside our Equipments is through Oil analysis. Oil analysis gives appropriate information about what has been happening inside the equipment’s.
Chem-TechTM Laboratories Oil analysis programs monitors Equipments for Mechanical, Operational, Environmental and other Factors which are bound to affect lubricants health and condition. Degradation of Oil properties might result in heavy losses due to maintenance and costly down time.
Oil analysis for a number of years has been used as an integral tool for monitoring the condition of the Equipment’s & Machines.
Following are few of the benefits:
|Engine’ s||Non Engines|
|Viscosity @ 100 Deg C||Viscosity @ 40 Deg C ( For ISO Grade Oils)|
|Total Base No. (TBN)||Viscosity @ 100 Deg C (For SAE Grade Oils)|
|Water Content||Total Acid No. (TAN)|
|Elemental Analysis||Water Content|
|Soot Content||Elemental Analysis|
|Oxidation, Fuel Dilution, Glycol Dilution||Particle Count or PQ Index|
|Air Release Value|
Note: Other Tests may included in the Oil Analysis Program depending on the need of the oil analysis program for the customer.
