Product Recommendation and Consolidation

Our experts can advise on product specification, selection and consolidation. We can suggest the best grades to use for your applications and how to get the best use from your oils and lubricants. We can also offer an onsite survey and sample collection service.

Insurance – Warranty and Damage Claims

The Oil Lab Ltd has many years of experience in investigating and solving complex issues for insurance claims with regards to oil, fuel, coolant and brake fluid.

Standard oil analysis is often all that is required to ensure and provide reasonable assurance that a warranty claim is valid. This relatively inexpensive testing takes only a couple of days. If more in depth analysis is required, we have the expertise and equipment to resolve the most challenging claims.

Special Methods for Investigation

Our standard analysis packages will provide you with the comprehensive testing most often used when trending equipment and oil condition.

Machine failures can often be frustrating and can effect the supply chain and output process, our analysis provides a dedicated service that is focussed on helping determine root cause and help prevent such machine failure

If you have a test requirement and can’t see it on our website that doesn’t mean we can not provide it. If your test requirements are out of our sphere of knowledge, we can probably refer you to a laboratory with experts in that specific area. (Soil, food, gas or materials science)

The Oil Lab Ltd also provides technical support and is always pleased to work on long term projects with clients
