Oil Analysis 101

Oil Analysis 101

In this presentation, we will cover what fluid analysis is, and how you can strategically use it to make lubrication decisions and combat contamination.

Failure Prediction Using Real Time Oil Analysis and IoT Analytics

Failure Prediction Using Real Time Oil Analysis and IoT Analytics

Using oil analysis to predict future equipment failures has been used for many decades. By automatically doing real time oil sampling every 5 minutes and having the data interpreted by an Internet of Things (IoT) cloud server, the predictability of failures is greatly increased.

Microscopy Lubricant Analysis for Bearings from TestOil

CLEVELAND, OH – TestOil, the industry leader in lubricant analysis, offers no-cost microscopy and analytical ferrography for oil samples that require further investigation.

Data Centers and Fluid Condition Monitoring: Overview

Data Centers and Fluid Condition Monitoring: Overview

Many of our activities, memories and ideas are stored in an ethereal space called a Cloud, but what is the Cloud? Where is it? And what implications does it have on a global level?

 Oil Sampling Company TestOil Receives Lean Six Sigma Recognition

Oil Sampling Company TestOil Receives Lean Six Sigma Recognition

CLEVELAND, OHIO -- TestOil, the industry leader in fluid analysis, just announced that they were featured in the Lean Six Sigma publication iSixSigma. The article, which was published by iSixSigma earlier this month, is authored by TestOil’s Lean Continuous Improvement Engineer Shubram Subramanyam.

Why Machine Learning and AI Are the Future of Oil Analysis

Why Machine Learning and AI Are the Future of Oil Analysis

Oil analysis is essential for maintaining equipment reliability and life span.

The Use of Drone Technology for Remote Oil Sampling

The Use of Drone Technology for Remote Oil Sampling

TRC-2018 Learning Zone 51:38
by Michael Holloway, ALS Global

Oil analysis sampling can be difficult if not impossible in certain environments due to location.The use of unmanned aerial vehicles have increased exponentially due to advances in materials, aeronautics, and systems for commercial applications.Drones can accomplish tasks that would be difficult if not impossible for people.The combination of oil sampling and unmanned aerial vehicles is a perfect match in certain situations.Only recently has the concept become viable due to a combination of an aerial sampling boom with magnetic sample ports, evacuated vacuumed sample bottles with a servo activated sample valve, and a ducted fan unmanned aerial vehicle technology.This system provides ease of sampling in remote and difficult to reach access points to various assets such as wind turbines where normally it would be expensive if not prohibitive for typical sampling protocols to occur. This paper explores the development and application of such a system.The presentation will also have a video example of a case study of this application.

How We Used Machine Learning to Predict Engine Failures

How We Used Machine Learning to Predict Engine Failures

TRC-2018 Learning Zone 23:47
by Robert Kalwarowsky, Fluidlife

Are machine learning and artificial intelligence all hype? Find out how we used machine learning to predict engine failures using oil analysis results. Learn what mistakes we made, what we learned and how to use predictive analytics on your own equipment. We will speak about the basics of machine learning, how to apply it to your own equipment and offer tips and tricks based on our experience. Don’t miss failures and let the computers work for you.

Next Generation FluidScan Portable Oil Analyzer

CHELMSFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Spectro Scientific, one of the world’s largest suppliers of oil, fuel, and processed-water analysis instrumentation and software, has released a new generation of its field-proven FluidScan® mid-infrared spectrometer handheld oil analyzer.

On-Site Fluid Intelligence: A Revolution to Advance Machinery Reliability

On-Site Fluid Intelligence: A Revolution to Advance Machinery Reliability

Using in-service oil analysis to improve machinery reliability has a long history. The first oil analysis was performed over half a century ago on a locomotive engine. Just as a human blood test provides important information about your health, the information provided by in-service oil analysis about machinery health, especially for a piece of complex machinery with many moving parts, such as a diesel engine, is unmatched by any other technologies on the market.

Varnish Mitigation: Effective Fluid Analysis and Varnish Removal Options

Varnish Mitigation: Effective Fluid Analysis and Varnish Removal Options

One of the most difficult aspects of dealing with lubrication systems is that you can’t see what is happening inside of them. Taking an oil sample allows you to gather information about the trace amounts of wear metals, oxidation deposits, additive chemicals and other contaminants that tell you about the system. Just like blood tests don’t always tell a doctor the whole story, traditional oil analysis testing doesn’t give the entire story when it comes to varnish.

Oil analysis sampling can be difficult if not impossible in certain environments due to location. The use of unmanned aerial vehicles have increased exponentially due to advances in materials, aeronautics, and systems for commercial applications. Drones can accomplish tasks that would be difficult if not impossible for people. The combination of oil sampling and unmanned aerial vehicles is a perfect match in certain situations. Only recently has the concept become viable due to a combination of vacuum sample bottles and ducted fan drone technology. This presentation explores the applications where a patent pending ducted fan drone coupled with a vacuum oil sample bottles can provide access to various assets where normally it would be expensive if not prohibitive for typical sampling protocols to occur.
