Oil Analysis & Filtration
Browse IndustrySearch’s Oil Analysis & Filtration directory to find suppliers, equipment, products and information.
Oil analysis refers to the sampling and analysis of the properties, contaminants and wear debris that exist in a lubricant. Filtration refers to the separation of the unwanted contaminants and debris from a lubricant. Oil analysis and filtration are essential in prolonging the life of expensive machinery, particularly those used in the mining, power, agricultural, paper and transport industries.
Regular used oil analysis for engines, transmissions, hydraulic systems, compressors and other machinery can establish component wear trends. Such information is used to identify any abnormal working conditions and their likely causes so that corrective actions can be taken. Routine oil analysis and use of proper filtration equipment can minimise unnecessary repair costs and reduce equipment downtime.
Some examples of oil analysis and filtration equipment are oil filtration systems, hydraulic filters, hydraulic pumps, hydraulic filtration system, portable oil diagnostic systems, viscometers, and oil test centrifuges.
Some companies help industrial clients conduct oil analysis for their machinery. They conduct routine testing and analysis (including viscosity analysis, infrared analysis and flash tests) on hydraulic oils, coolants, fuels and lubricants both onsite and in their own laboratories.
