Oil Analysis

Oil Analysis

Industrial equipment generally produce large wear particles and therefore it is vital to ensure that the appropriate oil analysis goes beyond the detection of particulate matter to answer questions regarding oil applicability, viscosity & contamination as well as testing for the presence of water and other chemicals.oil-analysis

Oil analysis can help to achieve high cost savings for your program. Benefits such as:

  •  Immediate results & immediate retest when needed and on-site ownership
  •  Can defer maintenance costs
  • Reduce lubricant consumption
  • Improve credibility and predict mechanical failures.

Oil analysis program detects problems in hydraulics systems, gearboxes, pumps, engines, motors, turbines, presses, rolls and many other oil-lubricated industrial machines.

Oil analysis services have special features to measure the three most important parameter in any type of lube oil that is Chemistry, Wear and Contamination. On the basis of these three parameters both equipment and oil health can be diagnosed and we can further have a recommendation that what tests we need further.



We have an ISO 17025 Certified Oil Condition Monitoring Laboratory Facility in which Our Experts offer Key Fluids analysis and provide critical early warning information indicative of machine health. Analyzing and trending the data means you can schedule maintenance before a critical failure occurs.c385971-1-1024x680

Three aspects of in-service lubricant analysis are machine Condition, Contamination, and Lubricant condition. SUMICO addresses each of these with a wide range of benchtop and portable instruments.

Sumico offers oil analysis training from the plate form of Institute of Reliability Centered Maintenance (IRCM). IRCM has been recently awarded status of Professional Engineering Body (PEB) from Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) with regard to its Continuous Professional Development (CPD) Programs. We are first in Pakistan to Provide International Council of Machinery Lubrication training.  Oil analysis training is an extremely important part of any reliability lubrication program.
