FAILURE MODE

P-F Curve

A periodic lubricant sampling technique geared towards detecting categories and levels of oil contamination that outputs valuable information about oil suitability for further use, wear conditions and levels of contaminant ingressions.

The following common, but not exhaustive, applications include:

Common failure signatures include:

  • Viscosity

  • Wear Particles (Solid Contaminants)

  • Water Presence

  • Acidity Level (Total Acid Number  / Total Base Number)

  • Fuel Dilution

  • Grease

  • Oxidation Stability
