Oil Diagnosis

Expert oil analysis is essential for proper oil management. Even the best oil change software requires accurate data. TOTAL's ANAC industrial analysis service provides comprehensive lubricant oil analysis across a range of industries, including automotive manufacturing, chemical, energy production, food, metalworking, paper, textiles, wood production and others.

ANAC lube oil analysis can be used alongside other condition-based maintenance methods in order to:

  • Monitor changes in the oil's state
  • Assess machine operating conditions
  • Minimize maintenance costs
  • Reduce production stoppages and plan maintenance
  • Optimize oil drain intervals
  • Ensure that the lubricant is best suited for the operating conditions.
  • Identify possible pollution sources

Diagnosis and Comments

The ANAC Indus diagnostic of an oil relies on:

  • Commercial name and grade (type)
  • Application, e.g. Hydraulic
  • Industry, e.g. paper industry
  • Machine characteristics
    • Criticality
    • Tank capacity
    • Operating conditions
  • Previous analyses:
    • Oil history
    • Machine history
  • Remarks and comments written by the customer

The ANAC Diagnosis Report

The ANAC report will be sent by e-mail within 72 hours (standard timeline) of the lab receiving the oil test kit.

You can then use the data from the report with your existing oil software,  lube software or lube shop software. TOTAL also provides a range of lubrication software and lubrication management systems for a wide variety of different applications.
