Oil Analysis

The most cost-effective service to prevent machine breakdowns.

Often called the blood of the life of the equipment, oil can provide a great deal of information on the condition of the equipment and the wear of the installation in order to establish a relevant diagnosis on the mechanical state of the equipment system.

Oil analysis is made to determine if a lubricant is still working good or needs to be replaced. This efficient but basic approach gives high-value informations very fast and with a low investment.

I-care has been offering lubrication services for about 15 years. We decided to set up teams within I-lube to ensure on site lubrication activities, and thus complete our services. I-lube also proposes solutions for lubricants storage & handling.
