Regular aviation oil analysis allows you to stay informed about your engine’s internal condition, which helps you identify excessively worn parts and predict potential failures.
Aviation Oil Analysis (AOA)
Why Aviation Oil Analysis (AOA)?
Aviation oil analysis through ALS has been trusted as an essential maintenance tool for decades and boasts an extensive database of engine characteristics and lubricant performance history. Whether you fly just a few hours a year or log hundreds of hours, you cannot afford not to make regular oil sampling a routine part of engine maintenance. Regular oil analysis keeps you and your mechanic informed about any unusual wear, contamination, and lubricant characteristics.
Why Use Oil Analysis? Oil analysis is an early warning detection system that:
- Reduces downtime
- allowing for scheduled maintenance and repairs.
- Lowers maintenance costs
- allowing you to maintain your equipment in a fix-before-failure mode.
- Helps spot trouble before it becomes serious
- allowing you to detect microscopic evidence of metal changes in the oil.
