Why do machines require clean lubricants?
New Oil May Not be Clean Enough

Typical new oil can contain up to 32 times more contaminant particles than what your equipment manufacturer deems acceptable. Pre-filtering new oil on-site is an expensive and risky solution.



Why Measuring Lubricant Cleanliness is Important

If the lubricant in use in your equipment exceeds the OEM’s cleanliness recommendation, your equipment is experiencing increased wear that can lead to reduced component life, additional maintenance costs and unplanned downtime. This is why it’s important to use particle counting to measure the size and quantity of contaminants in your new and in-service lubricants and monitor lubricant health over time.  Learn how the Chevron ISOCLEAN® Certified Lubricants program can help you achieve your maintenance goals:

To maximize productivity and component life, equipment manufacturers create parts with precise machine clearance levels. Particulate contamination, often so small the particles can’t be seen with the naked eye, is the leading cause of machine failure. That’s why OEMs set cleanliness requirements for the oil to be used in their components.
