Unified system for all kind of oil samples

The cost of the laboratory oil analysis is covered by the purchase of the sample bottle set. The set contains 

  • a 100 ml sample-bottle,
  • self addressed envelope to return the sample bottle to our lab and
  • the sample information form complete with barcode label (used to identify the sample in the laboratory).

Turnaround is extremely fast with all samples being analyzed and diagnosed by the end of the next business day (as long as the samples arrive at our laboratory before noon in our prepaid sample bottle with a correctly filled out sample information form).

The usage of other sampling containers does result in delay of analysis and does create extra cost for manual handling of the sample in our lab.

Our Sampling Guide does detail the necessary steps for sampling and shipping the sample bottle to our laboratory.

Scope of analysis can vary with oil type.

  • Wear metals: Iron, Chrome, Tin, Aluminium, Nickel, Copper, Lead, Molybdenum, PQIndex
  • Contaminants: Cat Fines (Aluminium / Silicon),  Potassium, Sodium, Soot, Glycol, Fuel, Water %, Particle Count (Hydraulics only)
  • Oil condition: Viscosity @ 40° and 100°C including Viscosity-Index, Base Number (BN), Acid Number (AN) Oxidation, Nitration, Sulfation, Sludge carrying properties
  • Additives: Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc, Phosphor, Barium, Boron, Sulphur and Molybdenum
