Every drop of oil counts

OELCHECK's lubricant analyses allow oil or grease to be used for longer, as oil changes or relubrication is only performed when they are absolutely necessary. As a result, we contribute to ensuring that less waste oil is produced. This is because every drop of oil that can still be used is valuable. The lubricant contributes more in machinery and facilities than another substance could. This is why it is important to use lubricating and hydraulic oils or greases until they are no longer able to lubricate or cool moving parts for their intended purpose. You can find out whether you have to change your used oil or relubricate less from OELCHECK.

Everything oils and greases can do

  • Reduce friction
  • Minimise wear
  • Dissipate high temperatures
  • Transfer forces
  • Remove wear particles
  • Neutralise foreign particles
  • Protect against corrosion
  • Seal lubricating points
  • Act as a structural element



tons of waste oil were collected in Germany in 2014.

How much CO₂ will I save by extending my oil change intervals?

CO₂ factor 3,8 kg/l*

0 kg

CO₂ savings potential

* The calculation factor of 3.8 given for used oil is made up of 1.22 kg CO₂ for the fresh oil and its production and transportation + 2.58 kg CO₂ for the disposal and recycling of the used oil and assumes an extension of the oil change interval by 100 %.

The actual CO₂ savings potential is likely to be much higher than the above factors suggest. Longer oil change intervals (backed up by trend analyses) make a significant contribution to reducing your company's CO₂ footprint!

Use machinery for longer

The all-inclusive analysis kits tell you everything you need to know about the condition of your machinery. You can achieve sustainable use of available resources if you observe the condition of the moving parts in your machine or facility using lubricant or operating fluid analyses.

Early detection of wear allows you to avoid unplanned downtime and ensure your machinery runs at an efficient capacity. By avoiding lubricant-related breakdowns, you can ensure your machinery remains in use for longer and has to be replaced by new acquisitions less often.

With our environmental management system in accordance with DIN EN ISO 14001, we have been ensuring that we regularly monitor any environmental impact of our activities since 1999.

With this label we would like to show that we are a customer of Der Grüne Punkt - Duales System Deutschland GmbH in Germany and that our sales packaging for the German market participates in the dual system Der Grüne Punkt. 

OELCHECK is member of the environmental technology association - UmweltCluster Bayern e.V.

The Cluster of Environmental Technologies Bavaria, called ‘UmweltCluster Bayern’ is the Bavarian network of business, science, municipalities and municipal enterprises in the field of environmental technology.
The Umweltcluster Bayern is organized as a supporting association Umwelttechnologie-Cluster Bayern e.V. with over 200 members. It is supported by the nine Bavarian chambers of industry and commerce and funded by the Bavarian state government as part of the Bavarian Cluster Initiative.

The focus is on Bavarian environmental companies, especially small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
In close cooperation with politics, research, science and industry, the work of Umweltcluster Bayern focuses on transfer, formation and strengthening of cooperations. The central task is the networking of companies and research institutions.

UmweltCluster Bayern bundles the competencies of its members along the value chain and develops environmental technology solutions from them. For example, the title "UmweltCluster Lighthouse Project" is awarded annually to a project that makes an exemplary contribution to the development of environmental technology in Bavaria.

The UmweltCluster bundles the competencies of the following areas:

  • Waste management & recycling
  • Water & wastewater treatment
  • Site remediation
  • Air pollution control
  • Energy from waste & biomass
  • Resource efficiency
  • Digitalization

OELCHECK is proud to contributing its experience and knowledge to this network and thus contributing to the solution of environmental challenges.

Environment and Climate Pact Bavaria

With the Environment and Climate Pact, the Bavarian State Government and its partners, the Association of Bavarian Industry (vbw), the Association of Bavarian Chambers of Industry and Commerce (BIHK) and the Bavarian Handicrafts Association (BHT) are working to develop solutions for dealing with outstanding environmental and sustainability issues in order to promote environmental and climate protection in companies and businesses. And OELCHECK is actively involved!
