Oil Analysis Handbook version 3 bigger

Our newly revised guide to oil analysis describes recent advances in oil analysis for those industries with critical assets like turbines, engines, compressors and pumps that must stay up and running. We also discuss on-site oil analysis and the benefits for fleets, such as extending oil change intervals and keeping vehicles up and running.  Learn how to improve reliability while cutting maintenance costs and avoiding costly downtime.

This guide describes the latest techniques for:

  • Particle counting, classification and ferrous monitoring
  • Measuring oil viscosity
  • Analyzing oil for key parameters like TAN, TBN and oxidation
  • Water contamination in oil (Karl Fischer replacement)
  • Elemental analysis using OES and XRF
  • Fuel dilution
