Basic Test Package for Hydraulic Fluid & Compressor Oil

Our Basic Test Package for hydraulic fluid and compressor oil is designed to determine and monitor:  (1) lubricant properties, (2) contamination levels and (3) system condition. This package is recommended for routine testing and analysis.

# Test Name Primary Test Method Units of Measure Sample Size (milliliters)
         
1 Spectrometric Elemental Analysis: ASTM D6595 Parts per million 60
  •  Wear Metals
  • Contaminant Metals
  • Additive Metals
2 Kinematic Viscosity ASTM D445 Centistokes 30
3 Water Content ASTM D6304 % by volume 25
4 Acid Number ASTM D664 mg. KOH / gram 50

Extended Drain Package for Hydraulic Fluid & Compressor Oil

Our Extended Drain Test Package for hydraulic fluid and compressor oil is designed to determine the optimal interval for draining hydraulic fluid or compressor oil. This package also provides the same information (on lubricant properties, contamination levels and system condition) as the Basic Test Package (above).

  •  Wear Metals
  • Contaminant Metals
  • Additive Metals
2 Kinematic Viscosity ASTM D445 Centistokes 30
3 Water Content ASTM D6304 % by volume 25
4 Acid Number ASTM D664 mg. KOH / gram 50
5 Oxidation FT-IR Absorption / cm. 30
6 Nitration FT-IR Absorption / cm. 30
7 Particle Count ISO 4406    

Preventive Maintenance Test Package for Hydraulic Fluid & Compressor Oil

Our Preventive Maintenance Test Package for hydraulic fluid & compressor oil is designed to identify small problems in the system before they become larger problems, and ultimately cause catastrophic failure.  This package includes all the tests in the Basic and Extended Drain Test Packages (above) plus Direct Read Ferrography.

Predictive Maintenance Test Package for Hydraulic Fluid & Compressor Oil

Our Predictive Maintenance Test Package for hydraulic fluid & compressor oil is designed to predict system failures before they occur. These predictions are based on determining the root cause of previous system failures and studying the trends that caused them. This package includes all the tests in the Basic, Extended Drain and Predictive Maintenance Test Packages (above) plus Analytical Ferrography.
