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

Mecoil analysis is therefore mainly focused on contaminant 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 damage in the most sensitive components (valves, actuators, and pumps).
