Interpreting Oil Analysis Reports

Bob Scott, LubeWorks

Oil analysis is a key component in reliability programs worldwide. What isn’t as readily evident is the ability to fully understand what oil analysis reports tell us. This workshop not only will discuss some of the most critical oil analysis program factors but will also offer an in-depth review of several oil analysis reports. The presentation will walk slowly and systematically through numerous reports from a variety of labs, allowing the different formats to be viewed as well as the different types of equipment. Attendees are encouraged to bring a few of their own unique reports to share with the group. More info
