Whether you are operating heavy duty on- or off-road vehicles or fixed industrial equipment, it pays to have a used oil analysis performed routinely by a specialized lab. Checking the oil that’s flowing through your equipment for contaminants and general stability helps you determine appropriate drain intervals and helps protect your equipment by uncovering the causes of wear. For instance, if the analysis turns up excessive levels of dirt, iron, aluminum or chrome, you could have an air leak, or perhaps you need a new filter or breather. A used oil analysis will give you an indication of the issues you need to address to protect your equipment.
