Too heavy load and torque? Excessive high speed? Improper oil type and viscosity? Etc. LubeCheck™-oil analysis can help you in detection and identifying early abnormal problem of gear oil system (abnormal wear and/or lubricant) as well as indicate any contamination before they result in catastrophic failure, costly downtime, loss production and expensive repair. LubeCheck™-oil analysis program shall help to manage your maintenance activity with greater efficiency and more investment return.

Test Description

Oil Sample Quantity: 100 ml.

Oil Sampling Location/Point

  • Follow OEMs recommended sampling location / point
  • In the absence of OEMs guidelines , recommended below for general guidance for sampling point /location

General and Possible location/point in the beginning period ,will be

  • For gearbox which have oil level dipstick /plug . Through oil level plug. At dipstick of into the oil reservoir - using fluid vacuum pump and plastic tube
  • Drain plug/Line with tube extender
    At drain line /tube /valve , modification by install pivot or Tubing sampling valve


Before modification




After modification

Tubing sampling valve

Avoid to take sample from drain line.

 

  • Dedicated sampling valve installed in case wet sump circulating system , pressure feed line if pump feed




  • Other gear systems, consult FocusLab technical experts.
