Although lubricants are a relatively small part of a fleet company’s operating and maintenance costs, they can have a significant impact on the direction of equipment reliability, longevity, and the overall maintenance budget. Oil analysis can help maintenance managers to identify many types of contaminants before they negatively impact your equipment and bottom line.
Castrol® Labcheck® and the used oil analysis experts at Bureau Veritas have created a new infographic that summarizes the top oil contamination offenders. The list includes Abrasives, Water, Coolant, and Fuel, as well as high-level Detection and Cause details for each of the four offenders.
With a better understanding of the signs of contamination, you can identify potential problems early on, saving you time and money by reducing both downtime and costs to repair and replace equipment.
