Oil Analysis


In Africa you need fast answers. You cannot wait for used oil samples to first clear customs and then wait another 3 weeks for the results. Fast answers are often critical to your maintenance needs. The Oilview onsite oil analysis equipment provides useful and fast results to help you solve lubricant related problems quickly. This process paves the way for focused maintenance decisions and extended lubrication service intervals.

The OilView® Quick-Check Analyzer is easy to use. Test results from this oil analysis tool are available in 1 minute and are easily interpreted.  The ownership and control of the oil analysis equipment allows for the analysis to be performed by people familiar with the equipment that are tested. Lubricants received from suppliers can also be tested before site acceptance.

OilView® helps you make informed decisions by providing data in three critical categories: oil degradation, oil contamination and machine wear. Data management capabilities such as reporting and trending are available with included PC software, but a PC is not required to perform tests.

1. Dielectric Constant : This is the main test parameter and a comparison with the dielectric constant of a clean oil is used to determine lubrication degradation.
2. Ferrous Indication: Ferrous particles > 5 microns
3. Large Ferrous Indication: Ferrous particles >> 60 microns
4. Large non-Ferrous Indication: Non-ferrous particles >> 60 microns
5. Droplet Indication: Free water droplets
6. Water: Water estimate

The PC based software generates a graphic interpretation of test results in a Trivector format. See Typical report below. Test parameters are split into wear, contamination or chemistry categories. The maximum alarm level in each category is plotted on the interpretation on the Trivector plot.  Trend analysis of sample historical data are also shown in the software. Alarm set points can be used to show exceptions. Data can be exported in different formats and reports can be generated and printed from this oil analysis tool.
