LABCHECK : JCB Lubricant Testing & Analysis


LABCHECK : JCB Lubricant Testing & Analysis Services


JCB Labcheck is a progressive used oil monitoring programme that analyses through wear metals and contaminants, the condition of lubricated components as well as of oil. JCB Labcheck aims to determine oil condition & thereby that of the machine being lubricated by the oil by comparing the trend of wear rates of various system's components.


Objective


 JCB Labcheck serves as predictive and maintenance tool for JCB's valued customers as it can predict the potential machine failure at an early stage so that preventive measures can be taken before catastrophic failure takes place


Benefits


 A predictive maintenance tool to improve the machine availability


 Manages & optimizes oil drain intervals


 Reduces repair costs


 Highlights serious problems


 Can assess to avoid descriptions & expensive failures


 Improves return on Investment & ultimately leads to increase in profits


Methodology


 Oil samples run through two separate groups of tests. Physical & chemical conditions Inductively Coupled Plasma Spectrophotometer test to measure wear metals in sample


Guidelines for Sample collection


 Draw sample at operating machine temperature


 Draw sample from the same point using same procedure


 For machines requiring frequent oil changes, draw sample at same time interval after changeover


 Do not draw sample immediately after oil change or addition of top up fluid
