Compressor Oil Condition Monitoring and Analysis kit

Compressor Oil Analysis kit

Compressor Oil condition monitoring and analysis kits measure oil ISO cleanliness, moisture contamination, Remaining Useful Life (RULER) and MPC Varnish Potential of the oil sample.

Suitable oils for analysis

  • Compressor Oil condition monitoring

Oil cleanliness (ISO 4406)
Water contamination (ppm)
Remaining useful life (ASTM 6810 and ASTM 6971)
Membrane patch colorimetry – MPC Varnish potential testing (ASTM 7843)

Sample bottle for used oil
Sample bottle for new reference oil
Sampling instructions
Reply Paid mailing container for sample return

All these tests are recommended by Siemens:

Siemens recommends RULER
“The earliest sign of oil degradation is detected with voltammetry (RULER method) since the antioxidants are the most reactive species”.

Siemens recommends MPC Varnish Potential
“The most important test to predict varnish formation is the Membrane Patch Colorimetry test, which measures the color of the sub-micron oil degradation products, as well as particle counting”.

Efficient compressor maintenance can be achieved with CTG’s Compressor Oil Analysis Kits.

The Compressor Oil Analysis Kit goes beyond routine industrial oil analysis to include remaining useful life (RULER) and MPC Varnish Potential (membrane patch colorimetry).

Scheduled compressor oil condition monitoring and analysis detects the early warning signs of mechanical, operator and environmental events to enable corrective action be taken before any reduction to turbine reliability, availability and lifespan occur.

Oil condition monitoring ensures that decisions on scheduling oil changes, filtration system effectiveness, compressor varnish and other maintenance tasks are based on fact and are not purely time dependant like the number of hours, days or years of operation.

Compressor Oil condition monitoring and analysis kits provide lower operating costs by

  • Increasing compressor reliability
  • Increasing compressor component life
  • Ensuring the lubricant is suitable for continued use
  • Reducing unscheduled downtime
  • Reducing maintenance and labour hours
  • Reducing oil purchases
  • Reducing used oil disposal
