Renewable energy from wind, water and biofuels is very popular these days. Predictive maintenance of these plants carries specific problems, and used oil analysis for each of these applications needs to be approached to with particular attention.
Mecoil analysis applied to wind and water turbine generators help defining actual oil condition, plus a special attention payed to wear particles analysis.
In biofuels-driven engines (vegetable oils, gas from landfill, digestor or depurator) variability in fuel quality is often an issue. Mecoil analysis are most useful for determining optimum oil change intervals and efficient assets management.
