Independent Oil Analysis
For the Engineering and Energy markets
Transformer Oil Analysis
Mitigate potential risk to your HV / LV assets
Many insurance companies require transformers and other electrical plant to be regularly tested to mitigate any potential risk to electrical assets or the running of your business.
Regular testing can help identify incipient faults and plan maintenance activities to maximise the lifespan of the asset. Routine analysis of insulating oil / fluids for parameters such as DGA, Water, Acid, Furans, BDV, Colour and Appearance can provide valuable information in relation to not only the health of the asset but also the condition of the insulating fluid itself.
Lubricating Oil Analysis
Reduce component wear in rotating and moving plant equipment
Maintaining your rotating or moving plant items is critical to the operation of your plant and business. Managing your assets on site and having pre-defined maintenance schedules allows you to plan work and outages at a time convenient to you and your business, as well as minimising disruption to your production schedule which could be costly.
We can work with you to develop a sampling plan or strategy to check your lubricating oil to determine component wear, contamination or additive depletion, oil cleanliness and general oil condition to ensure optimal performance of your plant equipment.
Hydraulic Oil Analysis
Reduce component wear in Industrial and Mobile machinery
Maintaining your hydraulic systems in your Industrial and Mobile machinery is crucial to the efficient operation of the asset. We can work with you to develop a sampling plan or strategy to check your hydraulic oil is an acceptable condition to ensure reliability of the plant. Regular monitoring is essential to reduce the risk of potential catastrophic failures.
Although our end-to-end process consists mainly of analysis and reporting of the clients own oil samples, at ChemTX we can provide advice on sampling techniques to ensure the client submits a representative sample to our lab for analysis.
Samples are tested using our inhouse methods which are based on current British and International standards and once lab results have been checked and interpreted, a final report is produced and sent to the client.
Our depth of staff knowledge and experience enables us to discuss the significance of the results with the client, meaning that we are not just a lab who generate numbers.
