Engines, gears and hydraulic systems are exposed to a lot of dust, high temperatures and strong vibrations and impact. Conditions are particularly challenging when underground, deep-drilling or building tunnels. Underground, fluids with extremely low flammability must sometimes be used, as a fire would have devastating results. Oil and water mixtures, which are difficult to ignite, are used accordingly. These do not share the properties of a normal lubricant. As such, the water content and condition of the oil must be monitored regularly, as well as the machine. For this purpose OELCHECK offers specially compiled HFC analysis kits.
Machinery filled with large quantities of oil are used frequently. These are also used around the clock in shifts where required. As such, changing oil is often difficult and associated with huge costs. Regular oil analysis allows this to take place where required and damage to be identified early.
