Automotive - Engine Oil Analysis

Usually, oil is changed after a certain length of time or a number of miles. Depending on driving conditions and patterns, oil can need changing sooner than the OEM recommendation. Oil Testing is a great way to understand the condition of your oil and engine.

Using only 90ml of oil, our analysis gives information on viscosity, additive levels, oxidation and Oil Contamination. It gives detail on wear metals that can indicate premature wear of engine or gearbox components. We can then advise when it is time for an oil change which can avoid expensive breakdowns, check the Engine Oil for your car!

Suitable for both Petrol and Diesel Vehicles.

All equipment and instructions are included in the Sample Kits.

Please note: This service is only available in the UK.

Commercial vehicle and off-highway Oil Analysis

Long haul, start-stop driving in all weather and with heavy loads can take its toll on a vehicle. In a competitive market with tight deadlines, any unplanned downtime comes at a premium.

At Millers Oils, we offer Oil Testing and Oil Analysis for heavy-duty vehicles as part of the Protected by Millers Oils programme. It provides the following benefits:

• Condition monitoring of your oil, as well as the engine components.
• Avoid costly unplanned maintenance and breakdowns due to Oil Contamination.
• History of regular Oil Analysis results alongside full-service history can significantly increase a vehicle’s residual value.

We require 90ml of oil to do the analysis.

Industrial Oil Analysis

In many industrial applications, the sump is often filled with oil then left to run throughout the year without an oil change. Bearings, Gearboxes, Actuators, Valves and Ejector Pins can start to stick or wear, without the maintenance department knowing.

If the oil isn’t sampled regularly, it’s impossible to know whether everything is running smoothly, or if the machine is on the verge of a costly breakdown. Frequent Oil Testing keeps the maintenance department informed of both the condition of the oil and the machine components. This allows maintenance to be planned around production – saving both time and money.

We require 90ml of oil to do the analysis.

Sample reports include analysis on:

Viscosity

Viscosity is crucial for optimum lubrication, and can change due to contamination or oxidation.

Contamination

Oil can become contaminated by environmental factors such as water, dust and debris, as well as by other oils.

Wear Metals

Wear Metals in the oil offer an insight into not just the health of the oil but the health of the machine components. High levels of a certain metal can indicate that a particular component may need replacing soon.

Additive level

Additives such as anti-wear, anti-corrosion etc. become depleted over time as they fulfil their purpose in the oil.
