OIL, REFRIGERANT, & WEAR ANALYSIS
Oil analysis works for any type of lubricated system and can be applied to engines, gearboxes, bearings, etc.
Proper lubrication of machinery is a significant contributor to the long and problem free life of machinery. Implementing a premium plant lubrication program begins with:
The assessment of the current situation: What are we doing?
Goals need to be established: Where do we want to be in a year?
Monitor changes & improvements: Set up a spreadsheet to update progress?
Proper training and implementation: Everybody needs to know at least the proper techniques in gathering the sample.
Continuous improvements & evaluations: Review the program and make needed changes at a minimum of annually.
