CLEVELAND, OHIO, United States, May 26, 2021 / – TestOilOil analysis experts routinely save industrial customers time and money with factual advice on when and when not to change oil in their factories. An example is a recent situation with Test Oil TestOil PRO team member and oil analysis consultant Micheal Shaw.
Shaw was in contact with a steel plant customer regarding safety training to prepare them for upcoming site visits to take oil samples. When Shaw called, the customer was in the middle of a conversation with one of his service technicians.
The customer said he needed to put Shaw on hold. While Shaw waited he overheard the customer troubleshooting a machine with the service technician, who told him, “I can just change the oil in the machine or pull the dipstick out and if it looks bad, just change the oil. ‘oil.”
The customer told the technician he had TestOil on the phone, telling Shaw he called at the right time. The customer then asked Shaw if he had access to the oil analysis reports from the previous month. Shaw claimed he did and asked what the customer wanted him to check out.
Shaw explained, “He said they were doing general maintenance around the plant at the time and they were about to change the lubricant on a machine they were troubleshooting. . As it happens, I recently took an oil sample from this machine and have some data. Shaw advised the customer that the lubricant condition was within acceptable limits and that an oil change was not necessary at this time.
This is just an example of how TestOil puts the customer first.
One of the many benefits of the ROI of professional industrial oil analysis is the money it saves on unnecessary oil changes in terms of oil, manpower, and labor. a myriad of hidden costs that are often overlooked. The costs associated with an oil change include:
• Downtime: if the oil is changed, the equipment is unavailable, not only during the change, but from the time it is isolated until it is actually put back into service. Even when a machine is not stopped for an oil change, the purge and feed process increases oil and labor costs.
• Accidental damage to the machine: Possibilities include adding the wrong oil, over / underfilling, damage to a drain plug, accidentally restarting equipment without oil, introducing oil. contaminated oil, etc.
• The actual cost of labor: With the added standard benefits, experts estimate that the actual cost of labor is around 1.5 times the gross salary.
• Oil Disposal Costs: This includes expenses incurred by outside contractors to properly collect and dispose of used oil.
• New oil: the cost of new oil, whether mineral or synthetic, continues to increase; with some flame retardant synthetic fluids costing close to $ 30 / gallon.
• Safety: Changing the oil involves a number of potential safety hazards, including slips, burns, and back injuries.
• New Oil Analysis: New oil may need to be analyzed to verify that the correct oil was supplied and to establish a baseline for subsequent testing.

“Lab testing allows our customers to make oil change decisions based on the data,” Shaw said. “Additionally, our training options will provide maintenance personnel with the knowledge they need to change the oil in the safest and most efficient way possible.”
