Monitoring the performance of your compressor lubricants through routine oil analysis is a relatively easy way to ensure consistent equipment operation.  CPI can consult on a lubricant monitoring strategy for customers at all levels – OEM, distributor & end user.  Our access to state-of-the-art lab equipment & software allows us to provide quick turnaround on submitted oil samples, and a user-friendly interface for data/analysis reporting.  The many benefits of regular fluid monitoring services include:


  • Extend Equipment Life & Improve Reliability – ensures that proper lubrication is present within the system & detects potential issues before they become worse, cause excessive wear or worse yet – cause system failure
  • Prolong Lubricant Life – proper sampling and analysis can determine if the fluid needs to be treated for any number of issues potentially maximizing the drain cycle time at longer intervals
  • Improve Operational Efficiency – minimizes machine downtime through identification of problems before they affect the system
