Microscope / Sampling Kit



We provide proper oil sampling kit which is critical to an effective oil analysis program. Without a good representative sample, further oil analyses are futile. There are two primary goals in obtaining sample.


First goal is to maximize data density.

The sample should be taken in a way that ensures there is as much information per milliliter of oil as possible. This information relates to such criteria as cleanliness and dryness of the oil, depletion of additives and the presence of wear particles being generated by the machine.


Second goal is to minimize data disturbance.

The sample should be extracted so that the concentration of information is uniformed, consistent and representative. It is important to make sure that the sample does not become contaminated during the sampling process. This can distort the data, making it difficult to distinguish what was originally in the oil during the sampling process.


To ensure good data density and minimum data disturbance in oil sampling, the collection procedure, device and testing location should be considered. The procedure by which a sample is drawn is critical to the success of an oil analysis. Sampling procedures should be documented and follow strictly by all members of the oil analysis team.


The hardware used to extract the sample should be easy to use, clean, rugged and cost effective. In addition, it is important to use the correct type of vacuum clean sampling bottle to assure that extracted sample is not contaminated.
