Sample Processing / Reporting
We use an independent laboratory for analysis of oils representing a wide range of systems and applications. The lab will request that you send your oil sample(s) as soon as possible after collecting. The oil samples do not “break down,” but any long delay between sampling and analysis can be crucial if a unit is failing. Once the oil sample reaches the lab, it will be processed within 24 hours. You will be notified if critical conditions are present.

Recommended Sampling Intervals
Donaldson recommends oil analysis as a fast and highly accurate way to assess what's in your engine's oil. This module reviews why a preventative maintenance program is important, how the analysis works, and how to read the lab report.
