ALS offers this grease testing which provides valuable insight into grease performance and integrity.
Evaluation of grease using conventional test methodologies can be very time consuming and expensive, and can require a significantly large sample of grease. While this can be a deterrent for implementing grease analysis as part of a predictive maintenance program, technological advances have been made in this area which streamline the ability to test small samples of used grease. One such technology is the Grease Thief sampling and analysis system. Grease Thief Sampling Kits provide the ability to collect representative grease samples from wind turbines, motor-operated valves, gearboxes, pillow-block bearings, electric motors, and other grease lubricated components. The kits are designed in a manner that allows for sample collection in accordance with ASTM D7718 Standard Practice for Obtaining In-Service Samples of Lubricating Grease.
