The accurate way to know your oil
Oil testing to save you on service costs
Oil testing has long been a way to check for fluid contamination that causes breakdowns, and to rule out abuse or neglect as a cause of failure. A small fluid sample is submitted to be thoroughly analyzed, then an oil analysis report exposes the condition and the contaminants it contains.
But for fleet vehicles using high-quality fluids, filters, and oils, oil testing takes on a whole new purpose. What if you could extend your service intervals by thousands of kilometers while maintaining the high level of protection that AMSOIL provides? There’s only one way to know, and that’s by testing its condition.
Simply submit an oil sample for testing when the scheduled oil change is due
The process of submitting an oil analysis kit
Why would oil testing be beneficial in the first place? If you’ve been changing the oil in your machinery or fleet vehicles according to mileage, you could be leaving time and money on the table. If your oil could still serve for another 1,000, 5,000, or even 10,000km, wouldn’t it be good to know? And what if there were other issues detected like concentrations of fuel in the oil? Early detection could help avoid a major repair when a minor one could’ve worked earlier.
Simply submit an oil sample for testing when the scheduled oil change is due. The oil analysis takes just a few days to produce the test results, and it can change how you service your vehicles. Based on the contamination levels, your oil analysis may show that OEM intervals are correct, or with AMSOIL, it can show that saturation is well below normal and the oil is good for some time yet. And when that’s the case, you can confidently extend maintenance intervals on your equipment.
Regular sampling and trend analysis — monitoring test data over an extended period of time
Sampling and Trend Analysis
Fluid analysis is a preventive maintenance tool that provides diagnostic testing designed to evaluate lubricant condition, component wear and contamination in mobile and industrial applications. Testing reports identify; dirt, wear particles, fuel dilution, coolant and other contaminants that can cause catastrophic failure or significantly shorten equipment life. Routine fluid analysis can detect lubricant or equipment issues before major problems develop.
Monitoring lubricant system cleanliness and filtration efficiency can keep your equipment operating longer and significantly reduce lubricant replacement costs. The suggested sampling intervals for conventional (non-synthetic) oils, follow the OEM’s lube service interval. When using a synthetic motor oil, the lubricant manufacturer’s recommended interval should be followed. Thus, to extend the lube service interval of synthetic lubricant beyond the manufacturer’s recommendation, an oil analysis must be conducted.
The Oil Analyzers Fluid Analysis Program protects valuable equipment by providing solutions for lubrication concerns through accurate and easy-to-understand fluid analysis, timely reporting and an unparalleled commitment to personal, friendly customer service. Oil Analyzers work with fully equipped laboratories staffed by highly trained analysts and offers a complete line of oil analysis services to help you get the most from your lubricants and extend the life of your equipment.
