Why is New Lube Oil Analysis Important?

A common misconception is that a new lube oil from a barrel is clean and ready to be used. In reality, it is the exact opposite. The new lube oil has the highest particle count and the chances of contamination are extremely high. One dirt particle is estimated to generate six wear particles. Particles in the 4 to 6-micron range are said to cause the most damage since they are the same size as the lubricant film. The Viswa Group’s new lube oil analysis can help detect formulation errors, and prevent contamination and equipment damage.
