Oil Analysis Services offers an insight in the quality of the lubricant and the lubricity properties, providing a diagnosis of machinery condition by early detection of abnormal wear and intrusion of contaminants in the system.
For advanced lubricated systems, regular monitoring of in-service oils is crucial to ensure operational integrity and to reduce unplanned downtime. Almost all wear of mechanical systems leading to system failures can be attributed to incorrect or insufficient lubrication.
Wear Debris Analysis (Ferrography) is a technique for analyzing the debris, or particles, present in lubrication oil that could indicate wear, particularly mechanical wear. This method provides microscopic examination and analysis of debris/particles found in a lubrication oil. A magnetic field is used to sort the wear particles in the flowing oil

The Analytical Ferrography test isolates wear debris and solid particulates for examination under a microscope. Analytical Ferrography is among the most powerful diagnostic tools in oil analysis today. When implemented correctly it is an excellent tool when attempting to diagnose an active wear...
