Oil sampling & subsequent laboratory analysis can reveal information regarding the overall condition of the internal components of critical equipment, such as gearboxes, compressors, hydraulic powerpacks, etc. Lubricants are sampled and tested for the presence of any contamination such as water or other detrimental particles.
The samples are taken and sent to the laboratory for complete analysis. The analysis reports are then uploaded to a website, where the individual reports can be downloaded and trended. DMS also utilise the onsite Tan Delta Mobile Oil Test kit to analyse more oil samples locally on site. This method reduces the need to send all samples to the laboratory, potentially saving money.
