Lube Watch Oil Analysis
The best maintenance is preventive maintenance. Chevron’s LubeWatch Oil Analysis Program gives equipment maintenance managers critical information about the performance of lubricants in all mobile and heavy industrial applications.
INCREASE RELIABILITY, REDUCE MAINTENANCE COST, CREATE A CYCLE OF SUCCESS
Chevron Lubricants’ business model is a blend of knowledgeable people, targeted products and customized services that can help lower operational costs while maximizing machinery uptime. It’s focused on what you need most: reliability. Predictive measures and analysis play an important role. Our LubeWatch® oil analysis program can identify contamination or wear before it results in costly downtime.
LubeWatch oil analysis enables you to track the performance of the lubricants in your equipment – the lifeblood of your business. By analyzing oil samples regularly, you can optimize equipment life and oil replacement intervals, identify lubricant-related need and understand the changing environment within a piece of equipment. This knowledge helps in the precise scheduling of maintenance work that can reduce downtime or even eliminate the risk of catastrophic failure.
THE LUBEWATCH PROCESS
Submitting oil or other lubricants for LubeWatch oil analysis is simple. Contact your Chevron representative to find the LubeWatch program lab nearest your location. The lab will set up your account and send a sampling kit to you. After pulling a sample, simply send it back with complete sample information to the lab in the pre-addressed LubeWatch mailing container. Most sample tests will be completed within 24 hours of receipt. You can receive results immediately via phone, fax, or e-mail. Mailed analysis results can be returned within a maximum of five working days.
