Most Common Questions FAQ
If you do not already have oil analysis sample kits then contact your nearest WearCheck and talk to customer service to purchase sample kits. Check out the Customer Service information above.
If you need to take a sample immediately then use a suitable container. It is important that the container is clean and dry. You could use an empty beverage container, however, if the drink contained sugar, then even a very small amount of residual beverage can cause a positive test for glycol contamination. Also the oil sample would likely pick up some amount of water that could cause an abnormal oil analysis result. If you must use a beverage container, use a sugar-free drink container (or water bottle), and dry the bottle first using compressed (or shop) air. Fill the bottle about half-way (we only require about 100 ml / 4 ounces of oil to do a full analysis). Ensure that the cap is secured tightly and then pack the sample into a small box that contains material that can soak up and oil that spills during shipment.

The simplest way to take an oil sample is using a vacuum sampling pump and sampling tubing. You can purchase these materials by contacting Customer Service or on-line from the Lubrigard Web site. The sample pump is P/N SP38X and tubing is P/N PT44. Here are general instructions on using a vacuum sample pump to draw an oil sample.
Best practices for oil analysis sampling require the use of dedicated sampling hardware. For an overview of the type of sampling hardware available by application read Lubrigard’s Guide to Taking Oil Samples. A wide range of sampling hardware is available on-line from the Lubrigard Web site. For an in-depth understanding of how to properly take oil samples participate in our Advanced Oil Analysis course.
