Lubricating oil analysis provides informationabout the performance of oil as well as the condition of the equipment in which it is used. Analysis will determine if the lubricant has been in service too long, when it should be replaced or if it has been over-maintained. Wear particles in the lubricant can indicate if wear is normal or if mechanical problems are occurring which may lead to premature failure.
OILTRACK™ services provide testing and evaluation of:
- Gear Boxes
Monitoring and periodic testing of an oil’s dielectric or dissolved gas content can reveal immediate or progressing deficiencies. These tests provide indicators of lightning over-voltages, short circuit faults and loose or overloaded connections inside the electrical equipment. OILTRACK™ services assist in predicting maintenance and reconditioning requirements thus reducing the risk of unexpected interruptions or catastrophic failure.
Increased regulation in the use of insulating oil has prompted a greater need for both PCB content analysis and decontamination services. To address this need, we offer the following in PCB testing services…
At one time, the electric industry extensively used insulating oils containing PCBs (Polychlorinated Biphenyls formulated as Aroclors) which have since been linked to various environmental and health concerns.
We offer cost-effective solutions for PCB detection, with available services in decontamination. Considering increased regulatory pressure to reduce PCB levels, OILTRACK™ utilizes superior GC/MS (Gas Chromatography /Mass Spectrometry) methods for conclusively detecting down to 0.5 ppm total PCB… something most competitors can't offer!
