    Lubricant analysisExtended BECHEM Oil Analysis

    Scrollen
    Fast oil analysis with genuine added valueWith expert recommendation

    The new service is based on a collaboration between BECHEM and Germany’s largest oil analysis service provider OELCHECK. The individual tests are carried out in the OELCHECK laboratory, but the competent BECHEM engineers evaluate the test results and provide the relevant recommendations. 

     

    The service is offered for regular analyses of gear, hydraulic, circulation, and compressor oils. Special-purpose analyses as well as analyses of greases, pastes, and metalworking fluids are also available and are carried out in the BECHEM laboratory.

    4 easy steps to the final result
    1.
    Order an analysis kit

    Contact the responsible BECHEM engineer for your company and explain the reason for the desired analysis. In agreement with the responsible engineer, you can then order the desired number of boxes with six 100 ml sample vials.  

     

    Local UPS shipping agents are available in a few countries:

     

    you can order the analysis kit directly from a local shipping agent (UPS partner agent).  

     

    Currently available in China, India, Taiwan, Russia, Romania, Turkey, and Uruguay/Brazil/Argentina

     

    The plan is to extend this to Indonesia and a number of other countries  (https://en.oelcheck.com/about-oelcheck/contact/exclusive-agents)
