Abstract : With advances in technology, increasingly important become the operational properties, consumption, cost and shortage of oils, working fluids (subsequently referred to as oils) as well as the role of oil parameters as diagnosis indications for an oil-machinery system as a whole. Hence it follows that the man-hours required for maintenance and improvement of ecological situation near machinery operation sites should be reduced. Especially important is the problem regarding aircraft (AC), which is associated with elevated requirements to their reliability and operational safety. The analysis of the problem has shown that the major way to its solving is the creation and implementation of a methodological and information-analysis base providing the on-condition oil application in place of scheduling oil changes and, as a consequence, the more complete realization of oil quality potential in service. The paper is prepared based on the analysis of the results of multiyear investigations of oil properties in the course of their accumulation for machinery of various types, mainly aeronautical engineering, and their diagnosing. It is the continuation of works presented previously at analogous conferences held in Swansea (England), Buenos Aires (Argentina),Pensacola (USA).
