Abstract : There has been limited general acceptance of lubricant analysis as a predictive maintenance tool in industry as compared to say vibration monitoring. There is perhaps a perception within industry that Lubricant analysis has failed to deliver on some of the promises that it has made. However when one looks at so called benchmark programs that exhibit the practices of industry leaders, and measures the achievements of such programs there is no doubt that if applied correctly that lubricant analysis is an invaluable tool in the development of an advanced approach to maintenance. There are many issues which create a successful lubricant analysis program, one of which is the appropriate use of existing technologies to ensure optimum value in the implementation of a program. This paper introduces the concept of profiles as a framework for the effective utilization of the correct lubricant analysis technologies.
