Modern Machinery’s Oil Lab

Modern Machinery’s oil analysis lab has been in use since 1979 to help diagnose the internal condition of oil-wetted components and provide valuable information about lubricant serviceability. With 25 years of experience in sampling oil, you can count on Modern Machinery to give you the best service available for all your sample needs.

Randy Streck, Modern Machinery Oil LabWhat is Oil Analysis?

Oil analysis is a diagnostic science that helps to determine the wear and performance conditions of internal, oil-wetted components such as engines, transmissions, and hydraulic systems. From the crude visual checks performed in the 1940’s to today’s sophisticated analysis methods via spectrophotometer, oil analysis helps owners, field managers, and operators increase the life span and control operational costs for their equipment. Little doubt remains today that a comprehensive oil analysis program is one of the most effective preventative maintenance tools available.

BENEFITS OF OIL ANALYSIS INCLUDE:

  • Increased operational safety margins
  • Increased overall component life span
  • Reduced in-service failures and field repairs
  • Improved cost assessment and control for equipment, labor, and materials
  • Almost any piece of equipment that has a lubrication system can be placed on an oil analysis program. Those components whose performance directly affects the continued operation of a particular unit or the overall profitability of a business are the most likely candidates for routine oil analysis.
