Engine Oil Analysis

The analysis of used oil samples from engines provides detailed information regarding the internal condition of the engine and its components.

What is Engine Oil Analysis?

Engine Oil Analysis also enables the monitoring of the condition of the oil, to ensure that the oil being used to protect the engine is in satisfactory condition and is not degrading or contaminated in way that impairs the lubricant's performance.

Oil Composition

Ineffective lubrication is the single biggest cause of machinery failures - Engine Oil Analysis provides the 'window' into understanding and controlling the quality of lubrication within plant machinery engines. Monition Ltd's fully independent Oil Analysis Laboratory provides specialist Engine Oil Analysis Services to industry.

Industrial Applications for Engine Oil Analysis

  • Construction / Heavy Plant (Excavators, Bulldozers, Cranes, etc)
  • Light Plant
  • Haulage / HGV
  • Marine Engines
  • Rail Locomotives / OTM Plant Machinery
  • Quarrying / Mining / Opencast Plant

Engine Oil Analysis Laboratory Tests

Monition's ISO 9001:2000 accredited Oil Laboratory is comprehensively equipped to conduct detailed Engine Oil Analysis, using a range of tests:

  • Full ICP Spectrographic element analysis
  • Kinematic Viscosity at 40°C
  • Ferrous Wear Analysis
  • 5100 Chemical Dielectric Analysis
  • Water Content Analysis
  • TIM (Total Insoluble Matter)
  • TBN (Total Base Number)

Engine Oil Analysis Laboratory Tests

Monition's Engine Oil Analysis service identifies:

  • An indication of which internal components are wearing out - and estimates the rate of failure based on the amounts of component debris present in the oil
  • If oil has become contaminated with dirt or water and requires flushing/replacing to prevent damage to components
  • If the chemical properties of the lubricant have degraded and the oil is no longer protecting the machine

Monition's Engine Oil Analysis Service offers:
