Consistent sampling at regular intervals, utilizing a repeatable procedure, will reduce the noise within the data to make it easier to spot any deviations from normal results, providing the earliest, and proper, notification of necessary action.
Oil Sampling Using a Drain Plug/Pipe
For oil sumps/reservoirs, without fixed sampling hardware installed where dipstick or fill-cap access is unavailable. The oil sample is collected by gravity drain into a sample jar.
Oil Sampling Using A Pushbutton Valve & Probalyzer Valve
For components installed with a pushbutton valve or KST/Probalyzer valve.
Oil Sampling Using a Sample Valve
For a pressurized fluid system equipped with a “Thread-on Probe” style sample valve ( i.e. Fluid Life B-Series Sample Valve).
To ensure accuracy and results integrity fill out all sampling cards as completely as possible. If the information is fully completed, your sample will be processed in the shortest amount of time.
The Oil Sample Card Guide outlines how to complete the individual sections of a Fluid Life oil analysis sample card.
