Mecoil Laboratory analyzes used lubricating oil samples coming from national and international industrial plants and applications.

The main target of used oil analysis is to seek for “weak signals”, hidden in the fluid, that can help technicians to make the right choices, in order to preserve the equipment integrity.

In the Mecoil Lab, used oil samples are analyzed for many parameters, using several methods. Analysis results are transfered on an internal database and managed via a Mecoil-developed software  system (“Permantenere”), that also allows a logged customer to check the results trend and compare samples, having in this way a sort of “tribological history” for each machinery.

Some tests, such as Viscosity, Total Acid Number or Karl Fischer, are well known and find many applications in other petroleum analysis fields. Some other methods, such as RDE Spectrometry or Lasernet Fines, have been expressively designed for used oil analysis.

Thanks to this ability in “reading” from a dirty fluid the condition of its parent machinery, it is possible to know if a damage occurred to an equipment and its severity, within seconds. The used oil sample is processed without the need of dilution, in order to ensure a high  results reproducibility, essential for an effective trend analysis.

Tailor-made analysis
InstrumentMecoil, using the best oil analysis  instruments available in the market, is able to perform tailor-made analysis for the evaluation of the oil and machine conditions. The high automation of the laboratory process, with daily calibration and international collaborations produce repeatable and reliable results, all the process is quality certified according to ISO 9001:2015
DiagnosiMecoil laboratory provides to the customer a report with the list of the used methods and ​​tailored limits for the specific type of machine, application, and lubricant. The analysis results are accompanied by customized comments and maintenance technical suggestions by assigning a graphical icon, determining the warning level (OK, Monitor, Warning, Alert), which is useful to quickly identify the most critical situations.
On-line, quick and reliable
Pulsante WebLabThe reports, entirely managed through our web-based platform Permantenere, are directly sent to the customer in PDF electronic format by e-mail and published on the dedicated page, with turnaround time of less than 3 days (from receipt of the sample). Mecoil technicians are always available for questions and technical support concerning the analysis.
