Get the greatest value from your oil sample reports by using all of the data
Almost every mining site conducts oil sampling for their equipment through an independent lab, OEM lab or dealer lab. The data contained within the analysis are valuable insights into your equipment. Typically, a lab will give an evaluation that indicates a level of severity or normality. The 'caution' or 'critical' evaluations are acted upon straight away and often the normal evaluations are not fully analysed to identify subtle rates of change that precede wear and subsequent failure. This is where the opportunity lies.
Turn your lab reports into actionable tasks that increase reliability
The Relialytics Oil Sample Report Module utilises all of the data you receive from the lab and gives you a deeper insight to what is happening in your equipment so you can prevent component wear and extend the life and reliability of your components. The Oil Sample Report Module goes well beyond the sample evaluation of a lab. The ECS algorithm determines specific limits for your fleet and uses all relevant data to highlight subtle changes in elements that lead to wear. It provides the recommended course of action in a work order for the next scheduled service. A low cost, minimal intervention approach to maintaining a healthy fleet.
Get ahead of component failures
Research has shown that approximately 70% of hydraulic system failures are associated with solid particle contamination in sampled oil. This is likely to be replicated in other components in mobile and fixed plant. The algorithms in the ECS identify the precursors to component damage at the earliest onset and often before significant wear is occurring. The Oil Sample Module utilises the valuable data the lab produces and augments it to get straight to the issues that require attention. Getting ahead of a failure can potentially reduce costs associated with unscheduled maintenance by up to 30% for a typical fleet. The Oil Sample Report Module give you the opportunity to address issues before they become a problem and result in breakdowns, unscheduled maintenance and component replacement.
“Time in Condition” Functionality Drives Focused Maintenance Actions
The ‘Time in Condition’ function alerts Maintenance Supervisors to previously identified issues in oil sample report data that aren’t being resolved in a timely manner and have the potential to escalate to a failure.

Manual versus Automated Oil Sample Report Analysis
The manual process of analysing Oil Sample Reports requires decision making at each stage which relies on human interpretation of the data. This is time consuming and is open to missing critical indicators of component wear.
The ECS process is instantaneous and semi-automated. All data from the reports is used in the analysis and recommendations are created to identify early warnings of wear and oil conditions. A simple and effective way to prevent failures.
