Technical Articles and Case Study Related to this application

Compressor is an integral part of compressed air/gas system, refrigeration system and air conditioning system. With only routine LubeCheck™ oil analysis of its oil, the test result can provide "look inside" without tearing completely down. When critical wear condition develop inside the compressor, an early detectable indicator as well as analysis trending in the characteristics of oil will be become evident.
