Grease Analysis for Condition Monitoring

Traditional grease analysis involves testing to assess a grease products performance and quality. Employing today’s suite of new ASTM methods for lubricants, WearCheck has developed a range of grease testing programs to assess used greases and troubleshoot grease related lubrication issues. Bill Quesnel will discuss the various test methods employed for grease analysis in commercial oil analysis laboratories today and demonstrate the effectiveness of these new programs through a series of grease analysis case studies.

Test Methods

Varnish Testing by MPC

Membrane Patch Colorimetry (MPC) is a test that can determine the varnish potential of your oil by measuring the amount of insolubles present. Insolubles in oil eventually drop out of suspension and form sticky varnish and sludge in the system and on critical components which can lead to machine failure or outages.

ICP Analysis

An overview of Inductively-Couple Plasma (ICP) Spectroscopy or ICP Analysis which is a fundamental test in any oil analysis program.
