Oilwatch Group of Laboratories believes Companies should be treating lubricants and insulating oils as an asset rather than an expense. The effectiveness of lubricants and transformer oils have a profound impact on equipment life and energy usage.

Lubricating oil analysis

Oil analysis allows you to easily determine the condition of your equipment by looking at what’s in the oil. We provide comprehensive analysis of transformer and lubricating oils, fuels, coolants, and industrial products.

We operate across Southern Africa with laboratories in Gauteng, Windhoek, Durban and Cape Town.

Our laboratories are ISO17025 accredited and 9001 certified.

Transformers management

Transformer asset managers are generally trying to achieve the required levels of safety and reliability from their fleet of transformers at minimum cost. Knowledge of condition is therefore essential for efficient transformer asset management decisions.

Without this information only the most basic activities are possible; such as time-based maintenance, replacement before end of life, or repair after failure.
