Most of hydraulic systems failures can be attributed to contamination, usually due to ingression of environmental dust, moisture and other exogenous substances.

Mecoil analysis is therefore mainly focused on contaminants evaluation, using very sensitive analytical methods such as water determination by coulometric Karl Fischer reaction or particle counting, sizing and characterization using Lasernet Fines (TM), a revolutionary particle imaging technology, which automatically classifies particles in metallic and nonmetallic, based on their shape and appearance.

Furthermore, colorimetric patch test (VTI) and optical microscopy ensure a detailed evaluation of wear particles and varnish precursors, that cause serious damages in the most sensitive components (valves, actuators and pumps).
