Why WearCheck?

Why use WearCheck? WearCheck not only helps reduce the cost to own/operate assets, it helps reduce the time and cost end-users spend to manage and run their oil analysis program. With the implementation of asset tags, QR SIF’s and online/remote sample submission, total costs for a high level condition based monitoring program can be greatly reduced. This video highlights a few of the advantages of using the WearCheck oil analysis service.

Test Methods

Grease Analysis for Condition Monitoring

Traditional grease analysis involves testing to assess a grease products performance and quality. Employing today’s suite of new ASTM methods for lubricants, WearCheck has developed a range of grease testing programs to assess used greases and troubleshoot grease related lubrication issues. Bill Quesnel will discuss the various test methods employed for grease analysis in commercial oil analysis laboratories today and demonstrate the effectiveness of these new programs through a series of grease analysis case studies.

Test Methods

Varnish Testing by MPC

Membrane Patch Colorimetry (MPC) is a test that can determine the varnish potential of your oil by measuring the amount of insolubles present. Insolubles in oil eventually drop out of suspension and form sticky varnish and sludge in the system and on critical components which can lead to machine failure or outages.
