Reliability and Condition Monitoring Services
Oil composition normally refers to the chemical mix of 'ingredients' comprising Base Oils and the chemical structure and quality of crude oils.
The testing and analysis of Oil Composition is a specialist and expensive process, usually undertaken by Oil Manufacturers as part of their product development for new lubricants.
Oil Composition Testing is rarely undertaken by oil users. However, many industries, as part of a plant condition monitoring program, will routinely sample oils for items of plant machinery and submit these samples to Laboratories for Oil Analysis to test the oil's condition, its ability to provide component surface protection, and to identify any levels of ferrous particles within the oil which would indicate the wear of internal metal components.
Monition Ltd operates a fully independent Oil Laboratory to support the Oil Analysis requirements of Condition Monitoring and Predictive Maintenance programs.
Oil Analysis is the most cost-effective approach available to prevent machine breakdowns and reduce lubrication and maintenance costs, enabling you to:
Monition's ISO 9001:2000 accredited Oil Laboratory is comprehensively equipped to conduct detailed Oil Analysis, using a range of tests:
Small samples of used oil can reveal an incredible wealth of information regarding the health and condition of both the machine and the lubricant that is in use to protect its components. Monition's Oil Analysis Service can analyse the lubricants from plant equipment to provide concise information:
Using various methods of lubricant and debris analysis, a detailed picture of water and contamination causes can be identified and trended over time to allow early response to potential failures.
Oil analysis provides precise information concerning both the health of machinery components and the effectiveness of current lubrication protection:
