Today’s manufacturing and production equipment continually becomes more sophisticated with advances in reduced power consumption, less harmful CO2 emissions, and a longer projected working life. As the technology improves, the procedures for professional maintenance continually adapt to match the advances.
Dry, clean oil provides the ultimate operating environment for your equipment; by ensuring your oil’s purity, you lower maintenance costs, improve overall efficiency and extend the life of your equipment. But in today’s sophisticated machinery world, you need more than a Dip Stick to understand what is happening inside your equipment’s oil.
Extensive oil testing is beneficial in many ways. It can save you money and increase production uptime.
Early problem detection allows you to plan maintenance and avoid costly unscheduled downtime. For example, you can replace bearings before they seize and resolve entry points for contaminants.
Regular oil analysis extends the life of your equipment by identifying wear, contamination, and other issues, allowing for quicker solutions and increasing your Return on Investment.
Insuring that clean and dry oil lubricates your equipment improves operational efficiency and reduces energy consumption and costs.
These benefits clearly underscore the significance of regular oil testing, which should be an integral part of the entire maintenance strategy.
Some equipment wear and tear is unavoidable. Still, with the information provided by our Complimentary testing and staff, you can more effectively develop your equipment management strategy to reduce it.
ISL Group professionals will provide a detailed report of your testing results and consult with you to help you create the most effective approach to maintenance and repairs.

ICP Analysis determines the parts per million (ppm) of all wear metals, contaminants, and additives.
Viscosity testing determines the viscosity of the oil to determine if the oil is still within manufacturer specification.
Visual screening provides a picture of both the oil color/clarity and the bottom of the sample bottle are taken, and any level of contamination, visual oil problems or visible wear debris of the oil is recorded.
Acid numer determines the overall acidity of the oil to evaluate degradation. This is the benchmark test to determine the change-out interval for non-engine oil.
Base number determines the remaining alkalinity of the oil to evaluate degradation. The benchmark test to determine the change-out interval for engine oil.
Water content analysis determines the level of moisture and water contamination.
Particle count analysis determines the level of the oil’s cleanliness, indicating contaminant ingress, wear, and filter by-pass issues.
PQ Index provides a rapid indication of metallic debris and can detect ferrous wear debris that may be missed by spectrometric analysis.
Ferrography is a detailed morphological analysis of the wear debris particles suspended in the oil to determine the type of wear process and cause of wear in a lubricated system.
