Millers Oils has teamed up with the Federation of Engine Remanufacturers (FER) to host a virtual technical training seminar, providing an introduction to oil analysis for technicians, engine reconditioners and students.
As the government cracks down on emissions and accelerates its green agenda, which is designed to cut carbon emissions by 78% by 2035, oil analysis is becoming more important than ever.
Oil analysis is the process of testing contamination levels and the chemical make-up of oils, as well as fuels and other fluids, in laboratory conditions to identify their properties and any contamination or wear debris that have been introduced from the engine.
Comparing the results of oil analysis samples over the life span of the engine allows negative trends to be identified and corrected, helping to eliminate costly repairs and prolong engine longevity, offering peace of mind. It can also help to plan service schedules, maintain productivity and reduce waste products.
Attendees left the seminar with knowledge about the analysis methods carried out by Millers Oils that can help to assess the condition of an engine, how the analysis can benefit engine performance and what information is given with an oil analysis.
The hosts also talked through the different oil specifications and the differences between manufacturers versus industry body requirements.
Millers Oils ended the seminar with a Q&A session, offering attendees a chance to ask any questions.
