CONDITION MONITORING - LUBE OIL

 
Everybody makes use of oil and gas everyday. Oil is used to power all types of engines including those of cars, buses, trucks, ships and aircrafts. Lubricant analysis is a wide field involves area stated to benefit the lubricant manufacturer and the respective end users.



Depending upon the application, fluid, gel and solid forms of lubricants are available and lubricating oils are formulated with base oils refined from crude oil in majority compared to the expensive synthetic base oils. Appropriate chemical compounds and polymers are added to the base oils, to achieve the desired fluidity, dispersancy, detergency, antiwear, anticorrossion, antifoamant and antioxidant characteristics.

The fundamentals of lubrication is to minimize the surface-to- surface contact of moving metallic parts by providing a thin film coating of the lube oil, the machine should operate with little friction and not much wear. The advancement of lube oil technology warrants clean system and long life of lubricant in service having necessitated, a programme must be in place to monitor the trend of the oil in service and the system. Scheduled oil sampling and specified test parameters must apply to evaluate the trend.

We at Geo Chem offer Oil Condition Monitoring based on four maintenance philosophies in consultation with renowned tribologists.

Break down maintenance - helps to find out cause of system failure
Preventive maintenance - helps to eliminate the cause of system failure
Predictive maintenance - helps to determine planned preventive maintenance
Proactive maintenance - Looks at root cause of certain common failures in industrial equipments.



Our OCM helps you to:

o Reduce operating costs
o Optimize maintenance levels
o Extended oil drain periods
o Eliminate unscheduled engine shut downs
o Protect equipments

Our OCM will show :

o Contamination
Fuel
Coolant
Airborne Dust

Defective scavenge air blowers and turbo chargers
Parts wear and corrosion
Coolant leaks
Overheated piston

o Oil deterioration
Oxidation due to over heating and contamination
Additive depletion

We provide assistance:

o In identifying critical piece of machinery
o In creating correct sampling frequency
o In identifying correct sampling point
o Educate the sampling employees

We provide:

o Specially design sample bottles
o Full flagged sample labels incorporating all details
o Sample collection from any where in U.A.E
o Oil analysis report with graphical presentation of last five results trend ( see sample)
o Web based reporting system

Interpretation of OCM Report:

RED - Critical problem have been identified and immediate remedial action is required.

ORANGE – Some observation have been identified, which may lead to critical problem, remedial action may be required.

GREEN – No problem have been observed.
