Condition Monitoring Excellence
This test determines the presence of water in new or used oils. Confirmation of the amount of water may be determined by other methods.
Significant water contamination is undesirable, and it should be removed or lowered as soon as possible. Placing oil on a heated surface will quickly and easily determine the presence of trace levels of water in oil. Using a representative sample size and a stable temperature enables an educated estimate as to the amount of contamination.
