Best Guess? HD Diesel Engine Bearings & Sample Information

One of the fundamental tests in oil analysis is analyzing data from engine wear metals. This spectroscopic analysis test encompasses wear metals from the primary oil wetted components. As the oil circulates through the engine, microscopic wear metals from the engine components become trapped in colloidal suspension within the oil stream. Monitoring the concentration of these metals can be very helpful in detecting the early onset of abnormal elevated wear and monitoring the wear trend.

Power Generation – a Dominant Force and Here to Stay.

In the early 1900’s, there were few reported cases of lubrication related failures in power generation turbines. In the 1920’s, oil quality was suspected in deposit tendencies. In the 1950s, oil oxidation problems were solved with just changing oil but it wasn’t until 1976 that General Electric reported the relationship between acid increase and how it was associated with deposit formation. Many power generation facilities were hydro power or fueled by coal.
