Reduce Breakdown Frequency and Severity. Among the many cost saving benefits and increased productivity associated with fluid sampling, the largest cost savings and benefits come from preventative and proactive maintenance. Fluid sampling and analysis allows technicians and service managers to monitor the condition of equipment systems and to identify and correct minor issues to reduce the risk of severe component failures and breakdowns. Large trucking companies who sample engine oil have saved on maintenance costs by reducing the amount of engine overhauls required by correcting minor problems and treating root causes to reduce the chance of issues from reoccurring. The data obtained through oil analysis can provide crucial details about engine components that would normally require an engine tear down in order to inspect the components. The time required to take a representative fluid sample and send it to the lab can save an enormous amount of time in the future from performing repairs and complete overhauls.
Oil Analysis – Industries have been practicing oil and fluid analysis for several decades as a means of determining the cleanliness of system fluids and the condition of components such as pumps, bearings, motors, valves, and cylinders within a hydraulic system. Fluid sampling allows maintenance managers and fleet operators to examine the components of a hydraulic system on their equipment without having to physically disassemble the system to inspect components for wear. Oil analysis has been proven to reduce maintenance and operating costs and increase both equipment reliability and productivity.
