Trending is extremely important in determining a machine’s health. Oil condition analysis is an excellent indicator of issues developing within a lubricated mechanical system.
By its very nature, grease presents sampling issues not present with lubricating oil, so despite the added inconvenience of sampling, the inconvenient truth is your PM programme needs this.
Whilst wear particle analysis is traditionally a purely visual technique combining light microscopy and visual partial analysis, we prefer the much more cutting edge technique of Scanning Electron Microscopy with an in-built elemental detector (SEM-EDX).
Testing the condition, chemical composition and quality are all essential to avoid unforeseen issues, serving an essential role in the upkeep of transformers, switchgears and tap-changers.
Unexpected and recurrent failures can be a real problem. Post-mortem component failure is an excellent way to dig deeper in the quest for determining the route causes.
Recognising the source or cause of an issue after the event, or where particles or unknown deposits have been identified where the origin is unidentified, with the unknown nature being of primary concern.
Monition offer a number of comprehensive fuel testing packages. This enables us to isolate common issues that can be extremely harmful to engines and generators.
