Direct method for checking of the same is to check the gear oil for contamination, wearing analysis. The most expected concerns for contamination of gear oil are Dust, Dirt, Water and Wearing of metal components used. Chem-TechTM analyses oil samples and helps customers overcome such problems by trending oil analysis data.

Gear Oils undergo rigorous stresses under application, hence should be monitored carefully for wearing of the machine. Analyzing gear oils for wear metal analysis gives a direct idea on wear and tear of the component or the machine.

Chem-TechTM offers Gear oil Analysis programs in two packages:

Basic Program monitors Gear Oils for its further usability while Advance package is designed for monitoring the wear and tear of the machine & particulate contamination.

Predictive maintenance & condition monitoring of gear systems through oil analysis is very effective way for:

  • Extension of oil change period
  • Improve Equipment cost
  • Prevent unnecessary oil change cost
  • Contamination Control
  • Predicting wearing of the components inside the gear systems
  • Predict failures & Downtime Cost

Gear Oil Analysis Programs at Chem-TechTM are designed to monitor following trends in properties of Oils used:

  • Particle Contamination
  • Wearing Pattern & Trend
  • Moisture Contamination
  • Oxidation or Thermal Degradation of Oil

Chem-TechTM carries out testing of Gear oils as per internationally accepted ASTM, ISO & IS Test Standards.
