Agricultural machinery can be hard on lubricants with a lot of external factors directly influencing the effectiveness of the oil.  Dirt, heat and organic matter can all interfere with the functions of the lubricant.

Benefits of oil analysis

 

Oil analysis can save you a lot of money by finding the trouble before it causes problems. It literally gives owners the ability to see what is happening within their machine, giving them time to source spare parts and make repairs at times convenient to them.

Regular sampling of equipment over time will show trends in the wear and tear of the components of the machine helping improve the maintenance and extend the life of the machine.  Machinery that is properly maintained will last longer with less downtime.

Oil analysis can determine when the oil you are using is no longer correctly lubricating your machine.  It identifies when you should change your oil and how long the oil will last in your machine.  When oil is no longer lubricating your machine correctly, it can cause unnecessary wear and damage to your equipment/ machine.
