Machinery failures can lead to significant downtime and loss of production, generating costs sometimes into thousands of pounds an hour. If your business was unexpectedly unable to produce, what would the implications on your costs and profit be, and how would this affect your reputation with your customers?

Lubricants are the lifeblood of your machinery, and by monitoring their performance, you can accurately identify issues before they lead to a failure. Particle contamination, moisture or the wrong lubricant can all lead to equipment or vehicle damage and potential failure. By identifying these issues early, action can be taken to address them. Regular oil condition monitoring can also lead to extended drain intervals, therefore reducing costs.

  • Reduce downtime
  • Extend oil drain intervals
  • Improve your maintenance decision making process

Identifying contamination in your oil allows you to plan corrective maintenance at a time to suit you. By being proactive with your maintenance, you can reduce costs for new parts, man-hours spent on repairs and lost downtime. Identifying oil properties such as foaming tendency, rusting prevention characteristics, water shedding potential, varnish potential and remaining lubricant life, will help you to maximise your oil, saving money on lubricant spend and waste disposal.

By combining your oil condition monitoring with additional analysis, such as thermal imaging and vibration analysis, it is possible to identify a number of key issues before they cause significant problems. See how we can help you reduce equipment and labour costs, extend the life of your oil and reduce potentially costly downtime.
