Road transport is probably the area that can make the most from used oil analysis benefits, in terms of operating cost savings. Vehicles are very stressed by means of a discontinuous and daily work, the quality of which is vastly variable and connected to several factors, including driver’s skillness.
Routine analysis on representative oil samples, taken in proximity of the scheduled oil change, can help making the most of the lubricant useful life, switching maintenance from scheduled to “on condition”. This allows to reduce maintenance operations and effectively monitor mechanical parts condition, with the ability to correct impending failures in a very early stage, reducing the risk of unscheduled stops.
For this particular application Mecoil also designed specific, cost-effective analysis solutions for transmissions and differentials, items that are mistakenly put into the background compared to the engine, but which contribute decisively to the proper functioning of the entire system.
