Grease analysis allows you to tap into new information about your equipment health and reliability. Taking action from the recommendations on your grease analysis sample report means you can:
- Monitor consistency
- Identify contamination, oxidation and wear concentration
- Optimize your drain intervals
Each grease analysis sample kit includes the materials you need to take a grease sample and send it into the laboratory – including a spatula, plunger, syringe, grease sampler, shipping tube and envelope.
Grease Sampling: Easy as 1, 2, 3 … 4, 5
