In every industry, the phrase "time is money" has never been more accurate. With unscheduled downtime haunting every operation, being prepared, and using various Condition Monitoring techniques is your first line of defense. Some companies use temperature monitoring, vibration monitoring, and noise monitoring--but what about oil analysis?
Analyzing the oil is just the first step since a one-time collection will only show you so much about your gearbox. The key to correctly using your oil analysis data is to trend the data over time.
