Oil Condition Monitoring

Oil condition monitoring Having a thorough oil condition monitoring program is important for efficient preventive maintenance of your system.

Our program can detect even the smallest changes to the health of your system very early stage, this will allow you to take action before the changes causes interruptions to production. With costs rising and tighter deadlines, the need for an effective maintenance strategie is greater than ever before. You can improve your maintenance program with Ocean Team Group’s Contamination and Oil Condition Monitoring Program which includes technical recommendations for optimizations.

Similarly to taking a blood samples, just a small sample of oil can show signs of contamination, degradation and/or wear and tear. In machinery the oil sample will carry small pieces of metallic debris, which can give us an indication of any wear patterns, which may be happening in your system. By using state of the art tools we determine what the particles consists of and in what concentration they occur which indicates what part of the machinery is eroding or breaking up, abnormally fast. Information received from oil condition monitoring can be used for predictions of future problems with the fluids or machinery, before it becomes a fatal issue and even long before the maintenance engineers notices. This enables your company to plan an efficient and optimal preventive maintenance program, saving you from costly downtime while minimizing your maintenance and repair costs.

Website Result Access
After the fluid or oil condition monitoring is completed, you will receive the test results sent as a pdf attachment to your email address. We also offer client specific passwords which allows you and your colleagues to access a complete historical database of all your sample results and reports from a single website. Results are uploaded daily and the first page allows you to check the status of recently uploaded results. With this data you can plan a maintenance program that can keep your production running longer than it otherwise would. Results can be displayed by location for users who wants to sample from multiple locations, and sample reports can be searched by many parameters including equipment make, model serial number or oil grade. As well as viewing all test samples and results submitted online, other aspects of our oil condition monitoring services can be accessed, including:
• Online trending
• Creation of individual unit or multiple plant
sampling schedule
• Print sample bottle labels
• Online registering samples before sending them off
• Optional support from lubrication analyst, NDT LA 2

Is Your Oil Analysis Truthful?
The trustworthiness of an oil condition monitoring analysis dependens very much on if the oil test sample is obtained from the system in a correct manner and how it is treated afterwards. To help you with securing reliable test sampels, Ocean Team offers our assistance with correct oil sample procurement in accordance with ISO/API/ASTM/DIN standards. Misleading results from oil analyses can result in wrongful maintenance of your systems. A reliable oil condition monitoring program secures the most optimal maintenance for your systems. Information procured from an oil analysis is used for predictions of potential problems with the oil or machinery, before it becomes fatal and even long before it becomes evident to the maintenance engineer.
