Webinar Description:

Proper sampling is the foundation of any lube analysis program. Irregular sampling procedures and inconsistent sample locations will lead to data that does not reveal problems adequately or is interpreted to identify a problem that does not truly exist, resulting in unexpected downtime or unnecessary repairs. This webinar will provide a clear understanding of the importance of proper sampling, followed by instructions on how to choose which assets to sample, from which location to how and with what tool, then conclude with establishing proper sample frequencies.

Learning Takeaways:

  1. Why proper oil sampling technique is important.
  2. How to choose which assets to include in your oil analysis program and how to establish proper sample frequencies.
  3. How to identify the best sample collection location and the best method for extracting a sample from that location.
