Fluid Analysis Program is offered for the exclusive use of SWEPCO Customers as
part of a complete predictive/proactive maintenance program. In addition to
determining fluid cleanliness, wear particle trends and early warning of
potential machinery trouble or unexpected failure, SWEPCO Customers have
extended their drain intervals as much as 2, 3, 4, 5 times longer through the
use of SWEPCO Lubricants and this program. |
Southwestern Petroleum, in cooperation with a world-class ISO certified independent oil analysis laboratory, has developed a detailed method of testing to determine accurately and efficiently the drain interval for SWEPCO’s long drain lubricants. We have made submitting samples for testing in the as simple as possible. Everything needed to submit sample is included in one of a variety of kits. This program, coupled with the use of SWEPCO's high performance lubricants, is sure to improve your lubricant drain intervals dramatically.
State of the art equipment and methods, including Inductivity Coupled Plasma (ICP) Spectrophotometry for metallic elements and Fournier Transform Infrared (FTIR) Analysis for molecular analysis of used lubricants, coupled with a retained Trend History for each piece of equipment insures maximum lubricant performance and fluid cleanliness.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO YOU?
Fluid Analysis Program provides the opportunity to save money through maximum
lubricant life while maintaining safe equipment lubrication. The program
eliminates the guesswork involved in establishing lubrication schedules, and
most importantly warns of impending equipment failure in time for corrective
action to be taken.
