AMSOIL Oil Analysis Can Provide
consider all factors before performing an analysis to ensure
maximum cost effectiveness.
Oil Analysis Inc.,
In April 2014 we
introduced the new Oil Analyzers Value Kit as a cost-effective
test to determine whether motor oil is suitable for continued
use. The kit provides "just the facts," as Joe Friday
was fond of saying, and can be used to test any lubricant
to assess the overall health of the system. So what if you're
venturing into oil analysis for the first tIme? Why is oil
Oil analysis is
a review of the chemical and physical properties of a new
or used lubricant. As the old cliché goes, oil is "the
lifeblood of an engine." Just as in the analysis of human
blood, oil analysis can provide insight as to the health (internal
condition) of the equipment. It also provides detailed information
regarding the condition and serviceability of the lubricant
Should a problem
be detected via analysis, the equipment owner will have the
opportunity to schedule repairs at a time and location that
is most convenient and economical. This is significant because
an unexpected failure is likely to be significantly more expensive
than a failure that is addressed during a scheduled maintenance
of equipment maintenance procedures and service intervals
can also be verified through oil analysis. Performing maintenance
too frequently will increase operational costs but provide
little or no additional benefit. Alternatively, too great
a period between maintenance intervals can result in even
Take diesel oil
for example. There is no good reason to change the oil in
a diesel engine if the oil is suitable for continued use.
This does nothing but increase operating costs and waste;
however, running diesel oil beyond its service life can be
even more costly.
Oil analysis allows
equipment owners to be proactive instead of reactive. We can
head off problems that increase downtime and expenses. Keep
in mind the old adage: "Equipment will only make you
money when it's working."
Whatever the reason
may be, an equipment owner/operator may become concerned that
the equipment or the oil is not functioning properly. To provide
peace of mind, an oil analysis may be the answer.
is a cost to have oil analysis performed, there is also a
value to the information oil analysis can provide. For example,
the cost to replace an engine in a Class 8 truck today is
roughly $18,000-$20,000, as compared to $14-$18 for an oil
It is wise to carefully
qualify potential equipment to determine if it is worth investing
in oil analysis. Areas to consider include the following:
- The age of the
equipment. Newer equipment would be more likely to be worth
the investment than equipment that is nearing the end of
its life expectancy.
- The value of
the equipment, both from a replacement cost standpoint and
its operational value to you or your organization. The replacement
value of a piece of equipment may be small but if it breaks
down, the impact may be significant.
- Consider comparing
the cost of an analysis to the cost of replacing the oil.
Trying to extend the service life of a few ounces of oil
may not be cost-effective, but for a 100-gallon reservoir,
analysis may be worth considering.
- Anytime you
have a concern with a piece of equipment or the lubricant
being used, analysis should be considered. The peace of
mind that comes from knowing whether a problem exists is
generally worth the investment.
When should an
oil analysis be performed? The answer largely depends on the
equipment, the frequency at which it is used and the severity
of that use. Typically, oil analysis is performed at normal
fluid change intervals. In more critical applications or if
a problem has been noted in the past, analysis frequency is
half the normal fluid drain interval. Anytime there is a question,
problem or concern is an appropriate time for oil analysis.
Customers can use
oil analysis to help diagnose equipment issues, identify contamination
issues, identify how to safely extend drain intervals and
help solve problems. Published, AMSOIL Magazine 12/14.

synthetic motor oils are formulated to surpass engine test
specifications, offering protection far greater than competing
motor oils for extended drain intervals. Most synthetic oil
manufacturers make no claim to extended drain intervals, deferring
to the maintenance schedule provided by the vehicle manufacturer.
With its unparalleled oil and warranty program, AMSOIL offers
consumers unprecedented protection and economics.
More than 20 years
ago, AMSOIL began using the NOACK volatility test as a comparison
tool and measurement of quality. Back then, nearly every oil
tested side-by-side with AMSOIL synthetic motor oils failed,
and those that passed barely squeaked by. Other oil companies
paid no attention to NOACK results until Ford Motor Company
made it a requirement for service fill oils, validating what
AMSOIL had said all along.
NOACK Volatility Test
Volatility Test determines the evaporation loss
of lubricants in high temperature service. The more
motor oils vaporize, the thicker and heavier they become,
contributing to poor circulation, reduced fuel economy
and increased oil consumption, wear and emissions. AMSOIL
Synthetic Motor Oil resists high temperature volatization
better than other motor oils. AMSOIL Synthetic Motor
Oil maintains peak fuel efficiency and reduces oil consumption
