How to properly prepare your samples for return to the WearCheck laboratory using the new QR-coded sample information forms and poly pack mailer.
Why use WearCheck?
WearCheck not only helps reduce the cost to own/operate assets, it helps reduce the time and cost end-users spend to manage and run their oil analysis program. With the implementation of asset tags, QR SIF’s and online/remote sample submission, total costs for a high level condition based monitoring program can be greatly reduced. Below are just a few of the advantages of using the WearCheck oil analysis service.
Service & Innovation
WearCheck provides the best service in the industry through direct support and innovations that make running your oil analysis program simple and efficient. Some of the innovations WearCheck have introduced to this industry are shown below.
Simplified Sample Kits
WearCheck's new simplified sample kits include a soft poly pack mailer that holds 1 to 6 sample bottles, a simplified sample form with QR codes that contain pre-stored information about samples and are scannable by your mobile device for tracking & on-line data entry.
- Poly pack mailer for 1 to 6 sample bottles
- Simplified sample form with QR codes
- Contains pre-stored sample information
- Natively scannable for tracking & on-line data entry
- Integrates with the WV2 companion app for mobile devices
WearCheck is introducing our new soft mailer (or polypack). As part of our continuous improvements we looked at how we could lessen the carbon footprint of our processes. The outer mailer (the white container with red cap) was originally meant to be used as a postal preferred mailer. Unfortunately the post office has made it very expensive to ship these using regular post, which means most customers use courier instead.
We have replaced our white outer mailer containers with polypacks that are included in your shipment. You may either use one polypack per sample or you can return up to six (6) filled sample bottles in each polypack. There are detailed instructions on the polypack indicating how to complete your samples and ship them back to the WearCheck laboratory. We are excited to make the switch to the polypacks, which provides a significant reduction in plastic waste being generated by our company, and as a result is better for the environment.
WebCheck™ Companion App
The Oil Analysis app is a serious tool for taking and submitting your fluid samples to WearCheck & other supported oil analysis programs. Instead of filling out the paper forms you can just scan the barcode and enter the sample details into the app.
Need to pull up some sample results while on the go? We've got you covered. The oil analysis app lets you view full sample results from all samples submitted for the past 90 days. You no longer need to be in front of your computer to get the info you need.
WebCheck™ Oil Analysis Management System (WV2)
From the Leader in Oil Analysis comes the leading edge oil analysis management system, WebCheck and the newly released version 2 system. WebCheck was the first oil analysis software on the Internet, and this latest release is a complete re-write of the original WebCheck system first released in 1998 and developed and used by over 60,000 clients until it's retirement in 2020.
Subscription Management Reports
WV2 takes management reporting to a whole new level. WV2 automatically tracks your program metrics, including percentage of on-line data entry, data completion score, sample conformance, sample latency, lab turn-around, fleet health, ROI and repair ratios. Custom subscription based reports allow you to create highly customized management reports that are pushed to your email at whatever interval you specify.
