Industries We Service

Power Generation

Condition monitoring based on oil analysis is widely practiced by power plants, whether they are nuclear, coal-fired steam, combined cycle gas turbine, medium and low speed diesels, windmills, or geo-thermal. All of these plants have critical turbines, pumps, bearings, fans, compressors, gears and hydraulic systems. Failure of critical equipment may cause plant shut down at great cost.

GIS offers on-site oil analysis. We send samples to a 3rd party oil analysis labs. We will email you results with our GIS engineer’s technical recommendations depending on lab results.

Typical Power plant oil samples are:

  • Tested for elemental content to determine wear metals, contaminants and additives
  • FT-IR analysis to determine lubricant degradation and second phase fluid contamination (i.e., water, fuel glycol)
  • Viscosity testing
  • Particle counting to determine contaminant and wear particle levels
  • Ferrographic analysis if routine tests show problems or for extremely critical components

Industrial Manufacturing

Condition monitoring based on oil analysis has become an important, if not mandatory, maintenance practice. An effective oil analysis program will keep important manufacturing assets such as pumps, gears, bearings, compressors, engines, hydraulic systems and other oil-wetted machinery in operation by reducing unexpected failures and costly unscheduled down time.

Mining

Oil analysis is applicable to all oil-wetted systems to include:

  • trucks
  • tractors
  • wheeled loaders
  • dozers
  • motor graders
  • crushers
  • scrapers
  • excavators

GIS can work with large and small mining operations throughout the nation to enhance existing oil analysis programs and in some cases, we have even provided complete turnkey systems to implement a program from the beginning.

Military

Machine condition monitoring based on oil analysis has become an essential maintenance practice by military organizations throughout the world. An effective oil analysis program will keep important military assets such as planes, ships, tanks, trucks and any other oil-wetted machinery in operation by reducing unexpected failures and costly unscheduled down time.

Benefit

  • Enhance your ability to ID problems before they become costly failures
  • Reduce Unscheduled downtime
  • Less Production loss
