Our Valuable Oil Test Survey
An Oil Analysis Survey can help to develop an effective Oil Testing Program. By identifying critical equipment, selecting relevant test packages, and setting program objectives, the program will be productive from the onset. This proposal outlines the elements of a survey and key benefits that can be realized.
In order to focus the efforts of the oil testing program, simple objectives must be established. Based on those objectives, the proper elements of the program can be selected to accomplish effective maintenance practices. Several areas will be investigated, including:
By identifying potential sources of contamination, it is possible to more effectively monitor the level of contaminants in the lubricating oils. Potential contaminants and sources of ingression will be identified. This will allow for proper monitoring, and specific corrective action when contamination is found.
Each piece of equipment identified for inclusion will be evaluated for the following parameters:
