The most common cause of engine failure is due to excessive wear or metal fatigue. But there is a simple test you can perform on a regular basis to ensure that your engine is functioning correctly. That is, of course, to carefully cut open your oil filter and visually check the media for metal particles. But the fact is, the most telling sign of impending engine failure comes from microscopic particles that cannot be seen with the naked eye. That’s why you should have a lab do an oil check.
Aviation Laboratories’ test kit determines the condition of oil wetted engine parts even on the first sample. Simply fill the supplied sample bottle with oil and mail it in for analysis. Aviation Laboratories will analyze 12 wear metal elements for piston and turbine engines, and post the results ONLINE for your private review. The analysis is usually completed within 24 hours, and if they detect an abnormal condition, they will contact you immediately to alert you to potential engine problems. A huge database of wear characteristics for every engine model, and a highly experienced staff allows Aviation Laboratories to give you accurate interpretive guidelines.
