Analysis of Used Lubricating Oils Critical to Plant Lubrication Program

Laboratory analysis of used lubricating oils is a proven technology that saves plants millions of dollars every year. As such, it has become an important component of most plant lubrication programs. Unfortunately, many plants are unable to use this tool effectively and gain little benefit from their time and expense in conducting oil analysis.

Lubrication Specialists Design a Program after Plant & Equipment Survey

PetroLiance will help you to select and use appropriate oil analysis tools consistent with your equipment, operating conditions, and objectives. We survey your plant and equipment to identify those critical applications that should be monitored in the first place. Our specialists then design a program to ensure the data provided is timely and useful in addressing practical concerns. More importantly, we organize and analyze the data from hundreds of samples to identify plant-wide practices or trends that adversely affect the lubrication of your equipment. With a wide selection of contract and supplier programs, we can help you to select the program and procedures that will achieve the greatest results with the least expenditure of time and money.

When oil analysis is designed, conducted, and supported properly, it can be an extremely valuable tool in preventing machine failures, extending lubricant service, and improving overall productivity.
