Acculube Has an Oil Analysis Service
for Every Commercial Vehicle

Our Goal:

to scientifically assess oil condition, equipment condition and system status, so you can:

  • Maximize oil service life and extend drain intervals
  • Identify problems before they result in downtime
  • Reduce energy use
  • Improve equipment performance and identify the root causes of equipment that is not functioning efficiently
  • Prevent equipment damage
  • Reduce warranty claims
  • Get the greatest overall value for your lubricant dollar

Acculube Oil Analysis

  • Determines the condition of the oil, and indicates whether it's suitable for continued use
  • Determines if any abnormal conditions exist in the equipment
  • Evaluates data so that unit overhauls can be lengthened or shortened based on science, rather than guesswork (or calendars)
  • Is performed throughout our service area and does not interrupt production in any way.

The Acculube Oil Analysis Consists of These 8 Parts:

Oil Analysis applies to all lubricants, conventional, semi-synthetic and synthetic, used in commercial vehicles and equipment.

Performed by qualified lubricant technicians, the Acculube Oil Analysis, and the Mobil Serv Analysis offered by Acculube, are exceptional tools for managing high-value assets, and putting science on your side.

Oil analysis helps keep mission-critical equipment in service, and at peak operating efficiency, while avoiding under- and over-servicing. It can dramatically reduce the risk of component and system failures, equipment burnouts, and unscheduled maintenance events. It lets you carry less inventory for "back-up" replacement parts, and it can help you get higher trade-in values when you change equipment.

If you have never had an independent oil analysis, the results and opportunities it will show for saving dollars and downtime will surprise you.

Getting the greatest productivity possible from every moving asset is a must. Expert oil analysis lets you do just that. Email us for more info.
