At Lube-X Technologies, we offer a fast and detailed oil analysis service with easy to understand reports. Results are e-mailed to customers directly after each test as well as uploaded onto a website where trends and history can be tracked for each component. Our customers include heavy equipment operators, fleet owners, mines, commercial workshops, farmers, OEM workshops as well as the man on the street.
Quick availability of sample results ensures that customers can identify potential problems before they result in major problems or breakdowns. Looking at the easy-to-understand reports and the tracking of the history of each component on the LubeTrak website allows for early detection of these problems or breakdowns. Customers can also plan maintenance activities and order spares based on the results from each component.
HOW IT WORKS
We offer oil analysis sample kits which include an oil sample bottle (certified free from contaminants), 1m tubing as well as a courier bag for sending samples to us. Once an oil sample kit is purchased from us it will be tested as soon as it reaches our office. Customers not in Mazabuka can merely drop off samples at their nearest Mercury Couriers office and it will be sent to us at our cost.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
We offer a 24 hour turnaround of results on samples sent to us from the time a sample is received. Results are e-mailed to customers directly after each test. Each customer will also have free access to the LubeTrak website where the results and history for each component is stored and can be tracked. We can test oils for the following components: engines, transmissions, gear boxes (differentials, final drives, etc.), hydraulics, generators and power steering.
ON SITE OIL ANALYSIS
We can also offer bigger companies their own laboratory equipment to be placed on-site. Sample costs can be significantly reduced provided a certain minimum number of tests are run each month on the analyser at the customer’s premises. A study will be done of the customer’s current status together with future requirements in order to establish the viability of an on-site analyser.
Our analysis equipment is ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) certified. ASTM is the globally recognized leader in the development and delivery of international voluntary consensus standards. ASTM standards are recognized as the “gold standard” of testing norms worldwide.
Spectro Scientific is the world leader in laboratory equipment manufacture and sales. Most companies and organisations regard their equipment as extremely reliable and therefore they have a big share of the international market. Through Lube-X’s involvement with their Southern Africa distributors the products are now more accessible in Zambia.
