Looking after your oil is an essential part of any machinery maintenance. The lubricating oil is often the only thing separating the metal surfaces of your engine, journal, hoists or compressors, and so without it, they could not function effectively. Oil analysis should, therefore, be a priority for any maintenance staff or engineer in order to ensure that all machinery is able to run as smoothly as possible. Further advanced oil analysis equipment solutions are also incredibly valuable for ensuring the continued health of heavy machinery. Not only will this improve machinery efficiency, but it also serves to reduce downtime. This can have a dramatic effect on output and costs, especially when combined with wear debris analysis and other condition monitoring methods.
