Oil Condition Monitoring (OCM) is a crucial element of any predictive maintenance schedule. OCM includes measuring, monitoring and analysing changes in lubricant and fuel oils for contamination and chemical content, and tracking degradation in oil quality from new to end-of-life. This data provides insights into issues affecting performance and reliability, and can form the basis of an effective maintenance programme.
Accurate, high quality oil condition analysis provides a deep insight into the health and status of your equipment. Contamination by fuel, water or acid, can quickly lead to oil losing it’s lubrication properties and subsequent equipment damage.
Small unseen issues, which if left to develop will cause a major breakdown, will be reflected in miniscule changes in oil condition. As oil condition degrades with use, you are able pin-point the exact time for maintenance, extending service intervals without risk.
