AmSpec’s lubricant TIC services produce high-quality, accurate analyses

Effective lubricant analysis performed on a regular schedule can help indicate when abnormal wear or contamination is occurring. AmSpec provides detailed analyses of lubricant samples as a valuable preventive maintenance tool. In many cases, this enables identification of potential problems before a major repair is necessary and has the potential to reduce the frequencies of oil changes.

Lubricant analysis can reveal information that can be broken down into three categories:

  • Lubricant properties
  • Contaminants
  • Machine wear debris

Improve operations with expert lubricant TIC

These categories are important in analyzing the oils health and verify that a lubricated machine is operating according to expectations. When an abnormal condition or parameter is identified through oil analysis, immediate actions can be taken to correct the root cause or to mitigate a developing failure, unplanned downtime, and save our clients money in parts and replacement costs.
