Grease Analysis

Sometimes it is more beneficial to have a component lubricated by grease. Grease samples can be submitted to WearCheck in exactly the same way that oil samples are. Insure that the standard sample bottle is three quarters filled with grease, fill in the submission form and submit in the normal manner. When the sample arrives in the laboratory the grease is dissolved in a special cocktail of solvents and violently shaken. Any debris present is separated magnetically, the nonmagnetic debris (wear and contaminants) are filtered through a nylon mesh membrane and the magnetic wear particles are filtered through a standard debris membrane.
