OELCHECK - the company
The owner-managed family business OELCHECK, founded in 1991, is currently the leading laboratory for lubricant and operating fluid analyses in Europe. The head office of the company is located in Brannenburg, Germany.
OELCHECK was founded in 1991 by Barbara and Peter Weismann in Brannenburg (Germany). The leading laboratory for lubricant and operating fluid analyses in Europe analyses up to 2,000 samples daily with more than 100 different analysis devices.
With regular lubricant analyses unexpected failures can be prevented, costs can be saved, the environment can be protected and lubricants and operating fluids can be used longer.
The oil, grease, fuel or coolant samples come from a wide variety of industries such as power generation, earthmoving, transportation, mechanical and plant engineering, the automotive industry as well as maintenance and service.
OELCHECK is the leading laboratory for lubricant and operating fluid analyses in Europe. In 1991 Barbara and Peter Weismann founded the company in Brannenburg (Germany) under the name WEARCHECK. It was renamed OELCHECK in 2009. The company is 100% family-owned and therefore completely independent.
The OELCHECK laboratory is equipped with over 100 state-of-the-art analysis devices. Up to 2,000 lubricant and operating fluid samples are analysed daily - the diagnosis is carried out within one working day and exclusively by experienced OELCHECK tribologists in Germany. Taking into account all data and with the background of their many years of experience, the OELCHECK tribologists comment each laboratory report individually.
The laboratory report contains a multitude of analysis values, which inform about the condition of the lubricant used and the machine - a traffic light system gives a quick orientation.
For the analysis of oils, greases, fuel and coolants OELCHECK offers its customers special all-inclusive analysis kits. These contain an individually welded OELCHECK sample bottle (100 ml) with lid in kit colour, a Sample Information Form with removable laboratory number, a pre-addressed return envelope with UPS return form as well as the laboratory analysis with final laboratory report.
With regular lubricant analyses, costs can be saved, the environment can be protected and oil or grease can be used longer, since an oil change or relubrication only takes place when it is really necessary. All processes in the Brannenburg laboratory are integrated into quality and environmental management systems. OELCHECK has been ISO 9001 certified since 1995 and DIN EN ISO 14001 certified since 2001. Since 2009 the OELCHECK laboratory is accredited with selected test methods according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005.
