Common failure modes
Wear and contaminants levels
Water contamination
Understanding protection of gears via viscosity control
Understanding if the lubricant viscosity is within specification at 100 °C
Visual indication of degradation and cleanliness
Major equipment wear detection to provide an early warning of gear misalignment that could lead to catastrophic failure
Enhanced protection through detecting larger particles
Assessment of oil degradation for increased confidence to extend ODI
Particle count to assess oil cleanliness
Viscosity loss through shear loss in multi-grade oils to help identify if top up with a lubricant of a different viscosity has occurred
