SLT 20 - Oil & Grease analysis
(SLT 20)

Lubricant is the life-blood of machinery and analysis of it on a routine basis will similarly reveal a great deal of information about machineries health.  Lubricant analysis with vibration monitoring is an indispensable and valuable predictive maintenance tool in industry.  Lubricant analysis plays an important role in the testing and startup of new machinery.  Periodic lubricant analysis is very important.

Lubricant analysis involves sampling and analyzing oil/grease for various properties and materials to monitor wear and contamination in an engine, transmission or hydraulic system. Sampling and analyzing on a regular basis establishes a baseline of normal wear and can help to indicate when abnormal wear or contamination is occurring.

A properly designed lubricant analysis program not only indicates the condition of the equipment, but also gives the service life of the lubricant under specific operating conditions.
