This paper discusses attendant problems in achieving full benefits from an oil analysis program. The problems of oil sample collection and retrieval of sample data are covered.
Heavy emphasis is placed on spectrometric testing for metallic oil constituents, while meaningful physical tests are selected according to equipment type. The technique and rationale of data analysis and the conditional statement of equipment and lubricant condition based upon the oil analysis are discussed at length.
Continuous sampling is an important aspect of a good oil analysis program. The laboratory is viewed as a consultant to the end user and the responsibilities of each toward a successful program are underscored.
