Oil Analysis Benefits

  1. Identifiy faults before a failure – Allowing these to be corrected at an early stage preventing a catastrophic failure. This can save you 60% in repair costs alone.
  2. Reduce power/fuel consumption and improving your carbon footprint – Identifying machine inefficiency / high energy consumption causes e.g. a leaky fuel injector mean you can significantly reduce your energy consumption and save the planet at the same time.
  3. Reduces unplanned downtime – this is the most widely known benefit and where huge returns on investment can be achieved with oil analysis. If your machine not working is a problem then you need oil analysis.
  4. Improves your reputation with clients – if your equipment is running more efficiently then you are less likely to get behind in production or deliveries and hence your client will have a better perception than if you were constantly unable to deliver.
  5. Reduces over maintenance – this ensures components / lube replacements only occur when needed. In fact 85% of all oil changes are done at the wrong time when not using oil analysis.
  6. Reduces wastage or build-up of intermediate items – in manufacturing if the last stage of the process fails then you risk build-up of intermediate or perishable stock that cannot be converted to your end product.
  7. Improves safety – Identify mechanical or chemical safety issues before they cause hazards to others such as uncontrolled movements in hydraulics or fire risks.
