TEC Eurolab

The tests we perform to analyze oils and lubricants at TEC Eurolab

We perform all chemical and physical analyses to obtain indication of the nature of the fluid, its density and flash point, as well as assessing the resistance

Lubricating oils (mineral or synthetic) are liquid mixtures used for lubrication, protection, friction reduction and cooling of metal surfaces belonging to mechanical organs in operation with each other.

It is important to analyze the chemical and physical properties of used lubricating oils to obtain information that determines the choice of the best ones, based on the type of use for which they are intended.

At our laboratories we perform chemical analysis to obtain an indication of the nature of the lubricating oil/fluid, physical property analysis to assess creep resistance under the influence of gravity, fluid density or flash point.
