Root Cause Analysis
Avoids Costly Downtime By Early Detection Of Root Cause.
Eliminates Unnecessary Pre-Maintenance
Conserves Costly Lubricant
Improves Equipment Performance And Reliability
The four main components of condition monitoring are
Analysis for wear metals to provide an indication of the mechanical condition of the unit and allow early detection of faults.
Physical testing to detect the presence of contaminants which can indicate problems (e.g. Fuel or water in engine oil and/or cross contamination of lubricants).Test clean lines so foils to ISO4406 and NAS1638.
Assessment of the condition of the oil to estimate its remaining service life and allow cost effective top up rather than an unnecessary oil change.
Analysis of the oil to ensure that the correct type and grade have been used and that the appropriate additives are present.
