Oil Sample Analysis Program

The Oil Sample Analysis Program is used to schedule oil sampling for laboratory testing of the oil from gearbox housings. This is only undertaken on the more expensive and more critical gearboxes. The component type for these items is Gearbox

Purpose

The purpose of the oil sample analysis program is to schedule periodic sampling and testing of the oil. This allows Trade Services staff to base oil changes and overhauls on the condition of the oil and gears rather than purely time based. This is an example of condition based maintenance.
