CONDITION BASED MAINTENANCE IS ONE OF THE MOST EFFECTIVE STRATEGIES TO COMBAT MACHINE BREAKDOWN
Using advanced analytical ferrography and used oil analysis, Castrol Predict helps you predict component failures and schedule maintenance without losing production. Whereas traditional used oil analysis offers incomplete wear metals profile and limited information on machine condition, Castrol Predict determines the exact nature of all particles present. It provides early warning of potential component failure and pinpoints specific failing components.
FERROGRAPHY IS THE KEY
Ferrography is one of the most powerful used oil analysis techniques. It identifies the exact nature of all particles present e.g. steel from a gear tooth, copper from a bearing bush. It highlights increases in individual particle increases to predict abnormal wear. Highly skilled analysts access a comprehensive database of ferrography analysis that enables objective comparisons. Castrol Predict’s unique microscopic wear monitoring has helped companies reduce maintenance costs and increase plant profitability.
