Our clients generate electricity from hydropower and wind as well as from burning coal or natural gas. The type of power generation is important to us, not only in routine oil analysis but also in annual preventive maintenance. High temperature power generation is more likely to break down a lubricant’s antioxidant package if water or excess air infiltrate. Over time insoluables form that can lay down on rotating equipment and varnish. We anticipate this, and look for the signs and recommend the proper tests to catch issues at an early stage. Also for our power clients we assist in delivering oil analysis results in a format that can easily be incorporated in to vibration analysis software so our customers save time viewing the entire picture.
