Oil & Fuel Sampling Analysis Services
Oil and fuel analysis services are a proactive way to keep your equipment operating reliably and avoid catastrophic failures.
Our highly trained and qualified Field Services Technicians can pull fluid samples onsite and analyze them using a Portable Fluid Analysis Kit (Patch-Test Method) and/or a Laser Particle Counter to accurately determine the ISO/NAS cleanliness levels and the amount of water contamination – results can be determined in as little as 5-minutes.
We can also send samples to an outside lab for more in-depth analysis and 3rd party verification. Lab results can usually be obtained within 24-hours, and the data will indicate any important red flags that might need to be considered (such as viscosity, ISO cleanliness code, water contamination, and overall fluid condition).
Our Field Service Technicians can help you establish and implement your own fluid analysis program, identifying the best sampling locations and proper techniques, the frequency of samples taken, as well as which tests are most important for your specific applications.
Water/Particulate Fluid Analysis
We can perform particulate and water analysis for Fuels and Oils both inhouse and anywhere in the world.
Oil Filtration Systems offers a Portable Fluid Analysis Kit that was developed to enable a person to conduct immediate on-site oil analysis in as little as 10 minutes. See below to request more information on the kit, view our online training session on how to use it as well as request a complimentary comprehensive guide on cleanliness codes and particle count analysis.
Using the Patch Test Method, a user can reliably assign a three-digit cleanliness code to any given sample based on photomicrograph comparisons of known samples. These known samples are the results of particle counts achieved by standards as set forth in ISO 4406-1999.
The kit effectively monitors particulate contamination in all hydrocarbon-based hydraulic fluids, bulk chemicals, and lubrication fluids.
