Used Oil Analysis

Looking after your oil is an essential part of any machinery maintenance. The lubricating oil is often the only thing separating the metal surfaces of your engine, journal, hoists or compressors, and so without it they could not function effectively. Oil analysis should therefore be a priority to any maintenance staff or engineer in order to ensure that all machinery is able to run as smoothly as possible. Further advanced oil analysis equipment solutions are also incredibly valuable for ensuring the continued health of heavy machinery. Not only will this improve machinery efficiency, but it also serves to reduce downtime. This can have a dramatic effect on output and costs, especially when combined with wear debris analysis and other condition monitoring methods.

At Parker Kittiwake, we supply equipment necessary for used oil sampling, analysis and testing to ensure you get the most from your machinery. This includes:

On-board Cylinder Monitoring solutions: Allowing cylinder and liner conditions to be measured and monitored on-board your vessel to ensure optimum operating conditions and minimise damage caused by abrasive or corrosive wear.

Sensors: These permit 24/7 monitoring of key performance indicators. They are for the protection of high value assets critical to production where failure is either unpredictable or especially disruptive, making them especially popular in Top Drives for Oil & Gas exploration.

Used Oil Analysis Kits allow more comprehensive coverage and are best suited to use by maintenance personnel. They provide indicative results on oil condition for trending a wide range of assets which makes them particularly valuable for main and auxiliary marine engines.

Used Oil Analysis Labs provide lab accuracy and offer a direct comparison with, or replacement for, Used Oil Sample Analysis laboratories. Perfect for use in remote plants as a dedicated and centralised asset protection, these labs are typically most effective in remote mining sites.

On-Board Cylinder Monitoring

Parker Kittiwake provide a comprehensive suite of products for testing of used cylinder oils. Detection of cold corrosion, scuffing and insufficient residual base are all possible, allowing corrective action to be taken to prevent damage to your cylinders and liners. These products can also be used for feed rate optimisation, allowing operators to save on operating costs, thus further increasing efficiency.
