Found in power generation, marine, mining and transportation industries. Their lubrication failure modes are substantially different than industrial equipment. Petrolabs engine oil analysis is designed to uncover lubrication anomalies generated by faulty mechanical issues as well as mechanical issues brought on by lubrication problem.
It tracks fuel dilution (%), base number, viscosity @100C and coolant contamination for fleet engine owners.
The longevity of an engine is dependent on regular oil analysis. Oil analysis can provide valuable information as to what engine problems and help in maintaining proper service intervals. Any “abnormal” factors or elements will generally be red flagged on the oil analysis report, which will need to be addressed
