As we come up to the end of 2020 we could all do with a little more festive cheer given the last 12 months. Everyone has felt the pressure including you I'm sure.

Lab analysis has been something that has become front and centre this year with sample turnaround times being something politicians now talk about on the news. We as a nation seem to have become far more interested in lab testing given COVID-19 even on non-covid related tests. In fact people realising I work in an oil testing lab now ...

This summer I was visiting a client in the Middle East to assist them in an oil analysis project they were interested in doing for one of the big shipping companies in the area. The end client had been hesistant in taking up the project as they still were not convinced it was something they could afford to do as they already maintenance the equipment well and so their machines never fail. I had hence been asked to come explain the benefits of the project by my client.
On the day of the meeting, ...

Being stuck in traffic is something we all hate, whether it be making us late or just the shear frustration of not being able to move that last 100ft to the next junction and get out of the jam.

Many of you know being stuck in traffic is not good for your fuel consumption, when you are usually in a lower gear leading to less bang for your buck in fuel economy both from the lower gear, and once some speed is gained it is all lost as heat when you brake meaning a waste of energy and higher fuel...
Traffic congestion is killing your engine. Use oil analysis to save it

Why Oil Analysis Matters?

Oil Analysis is used by people just like you all over the world to reduce machinery downtime and improve equipment reliability. A small sample of oil from your machinery can provide as much information as a full machine strip down at a fraction of the cost and has been a proven technology for over 60 years to reduce forced shutdowns and failure repair costs. Want to understand how oil and grease analysis works and how it applies to you then watch this short video below.

How Much Can Oil Analysis Save Me?

Oil analysis is a brilliant tool that can save you money each time you sample. The returns on investment vary depending on your machinery type, so feel free to use our sister sites cost saving calculator at the bottom of their FAQ Page.
