PMWS2: Oil Analysis Workshop: Finding your Way; Things to Avoid; Getting it Right

Mike Volante, Oil Check Laboratory Services Ltd.


The workshop will provide a deeper understanding of the functions of oils and lubricants. We will deal with how to set up and actively maintain a condition monitoring program. We will review pitfalls and problems associated with bad practice. We will share how to take and present samples to the laboratory to maximise value of the service. Finally, you will gain an understanding of lube analysis reports and interaction with the laboratory.
This workshop will invite interaction and audience participation, to share experiences and discuss live issues.
