Used Oil and Lubricant Analysis
Used lubricating oil condition monitoring is a powerful weapon in the maintenance armory. Used Oil and Lubricant Analysis from SGS can help detect changes in the concentration of metals and other contaminants collected by the lube oil, providing an early warning of any potential problems.
Analysis of lubricating oil, greases and hydraulic fluids gives a fast and accurate picture of what is happening inside power generators, gearboxes, compressors, hydraulic systems and other critical machines. It also yields vital information on the condition of the oil itself. Effective monitoring of lube oil allows maintenance to be scheduled efficiently, minimizing the risk of damage to expensive plants and avoiding unscheduled downtime.
