According to Forgeron, oil analysis is an extremely effective way to manage equipment reliability and productivity in any industry – construction, mining, coal-fired and nuclear power stations and manufacturing and chemical processing plants.

“Using oil analysis, KCA customers will be able to identify trends in wear and contamination and monitor changes in the physical properties of lubricants,” Forgeron said. “This allows laboratory personnel to pinpoint problems in their earliest stages before they become major catastrophic failures.”

Laboratory data analysts can then make informed maintenance recommendations that can improve machinery reliability, reduce maintenance and repair costs and significantly extend equipment life. Customers can easily access test results and manage their oil analysis programs through LOAMS - Analysts’ cloud-based, multi-lingual Lube Oil Analysis Management System.
