THE PRACTICAL APPLICATION OF LUBRICANT TESTING TO EQUIPMENT MAINTENANCE

This paper discusses attendant problems in achieving full benefits from an oil analysis program. The problems of oil sample collection and retrieval of sample data are covered. Heavy emphasis is placed on spectrometric testing for metallic oil constrituents, while meaningful physical tests are selected according to equpment type. The technique and rationale of data analysis and the conditional statement of equipment and lubricant condition based upon the oil analysis are discussed in length. /GMRL/
