LubeWatch
Oil Analysis

The lubricants in your systems hold many clues about conditions that can cause premature wear, shorter oil life and even potential failures. LubeWatch® Oil Analysis allows you to monitor, detect and correct these issues, to help you maximize uptime and extend equipment life.

Improve uptime multiple ways.

Oil analysis is best used as part of a preventive maintenance program that utilizes multiple tools and procedures to optimize uptime. We can help you implement this program with the right elements, such as condition monitoring software that allows you to track trends in lubricants and equipment and use the data to set drain intervals and other maintenance. We can also source other diagnostic services such as vibration analysis, infrared scanning and borescoping to help you pinpoint and mitigate potential problems.

 

Certified results of the highest integrity

Your oil samples are tested in an ISO certified independent lab using state-of-the-art equipment and procedures. You can be certain that every report is comprehensive, accurate and unbiased. Testing also is available for coolants and fuel.
