Is oil analysis the key to more machine uptime?


If 80% of all hydraulic failures on machinery can be traced back to contaminated oil, why do maintenance engineers place their faith in component monitoring?


Chris Gray, Filtration Product Manager at Bosch Rexroth explains why oil sampling is the key to greater machine uptime.


PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE AND COMPONENT MONITORING Preventive maintenance and component monitoring are two of the big buzzwords being used more and more across British manufacturing.


This continues to puzzle organisations, particularly in relation to hydraulics, because figures suggest that only 20% of unplanned downtime can be identified through component monitoring. In fact, 80% of all hydraulic failures on machinery can be traced back to contaminated oil.


OIL ANALYSIS Surely then, oil analysis is a more reliable option as part of a modern day programme. The truth of the matter is that oil analysis has the capability to prevent expensive repairs, minimise downtime, detect early damage to components, optimise filtration systems and even provide environmental relief through the minimisation of wasted oil.
