When it comes to the analysis of used engine oils for condition monitoring purposes, certain contaminants are vitally important to monitor as they are often the root causes of premature oil degradation and engine failure. Several global engine manufacturers acknowledge the importance of monitoring equipment to improve reliability and reduce costs and one of the most effective and least expensive condition-monitoring techniques available to engine operators is oil analysis as it provides a wealth of information about the lubricant’s condition, contaminants and the mechanical wear taking place.
This Webinar will look at the role oil analysis can play in engine reliability as well as describe the contaminants that are capable of causing premature or even sudden engine failure.
- An understanding of engine oil contaminants
- How these contaminants affect engine wear and the condition of the oil
- How these contaminants lead to engine failure
