Your primary concern as a business is to be profitable. All too often, these days, this requires an increase in profit through a reduction in costs. A well-run oil analysis program as part of your reliability program will achieve a substantial reduction in maintenance costs. In accordance with marine regulations, adding oil analysis to your routine maintenance extends the time between mandated equipment overhauls. WearCheck's oil and wear particle analysis packages offer you condition monitoring for your marine systems. WearCheck offers three levels of analysis, from basic to advanced test kits, as well as a blended program to meet your condition monitoring requirements.
WearCheck's oil and wear particle analysis packages cover all three areas of analysis. An assessment of the oil condition reveals whether the system oil is ready to be changed, or if it is fit for further service. Detection of ingressed contaminants from the marine environment, including sea water, and dirt alerts you in time to perform filtration service, saving the oil and avoiding unnecessary wear. When the oil condition and contamination is reduced by routine monitoring, system wear will be minimized. WearCheck's analysis can detect subtle changes in the levels of wear metals present in the system oil. Failures due to worn out components can be avoided long before those components are worn out of specification.
WearCheck's Oil Analysis Program only requires you to take a small sample of the oil from each component being monitored. You are provided with clear and concise directions, a mobile app, forms, asset tags, and sample bottles needed to submit samples to the WearCheck laboratory.
After you have taken the sample, you simply fill out an information sheet, or scan the sample bottle with the mobile app, and submit it with your oil sample to the WearCheck laboratory. Once the sample is received several tests are performed to assess the conditions of the component. Once complete you receive a detailed oil sample report with a concise diagnosis and clear recommendations by email, through the mobile app, or integrated into your CMMS.
WearCheck's Oil Analysis is being effectively used today for a broad range of marine equipment, operating in a wide variety of industries including marine transport, off-shore platforms and FPSOs, and military and government marine vessels.
