Yet, oil analysis as a reliability tool is still looked at as a secondary technology and not considered to be key to reliability monitoring and machine longevity.

In the world of mobile equipment, oil analysis has been used to successfully and dramatically increase oil drain intervals. To these mobile fleets, lubricants make up a significant portion of maintenance costs. The same is not true in industrial manufacturing facilities. The cost of lubricants in industrial facilities makes up only 1-3% of a plant maintenance budget on average.
