Why Aviation Oil Analysis is Important
Our aviation and aerospace oil analysis program helps you save time and money by maintaining ideal engine performance, productivity, and reliability. Our program helps you determine the following conditions:
Determine Aerospace Fluid Properties
First, we evaluate several oil conditions such as viscosity, acidity, and dilution to determine its health and remaining useful life. From there, we can define which oils are the correct oils to use for your specific application. We see if the expected oil grade and conditions are accurate, and determine which oil additives to recommend.
Indicate Oil Contaminants and Additives
Next, we determine the concentration of additives and contaminants in the oil, such as metal content, silicon content, and phosphorus. With this data, we can identify oil contamination sources and if there is internal leakage contaminating your oil.
Identify Wear Debris
Then, we can discover the presence of particles produced as a result of mechanical wear, corrosion, or degradation. We identify the source of the contaminant and the amount of metal wear in the engine. Given this information, we can see how severe your machine wear is, and if it is deteriorating abnormally.
Unlocking the Value of Aircraft Oil Analysis
Like a person getting their blood tested at a hospital, KWOil’s aviation oil analysis services monitor the health and ailments of your aircraft. From there, we gather crucial information that can help increase productivity and longevity, improve durability, reduce downtime, and decrease lubricant consumption. Our analysis team then draws conclusions from this data and provides you with precise feedback and detailed, actionable recommendations that can lead to cost savings and peace of mind.
Remember: consistent, ongoing aircraft oil testing and analysis is critical for ensuring optimal aircraft health. With scheduled aviation oil analysis, our testing team can measure trends over time that a single test cannot detect. Monitoring these trends helps us recognize equipment issues to extend the life of your equipment and preventing costly repairs.
