As well as holding UKAS 17025 accreditation, ALcontrol Oil Analysis Laboratory is now the only BINDT-approved facility in Europe that offers training in lubrication management. The lab offers a world-leading analysis service based on equipment condition monitoring through fluid analysis.

It specialises in monitoring all lubricated systems and transformer oils through extensive analysis, aiding customers to safely extend oil drain intervals, schedule maintenance, reduce downtime and extend warranties.

ALcontrol's aims are to minimise your costs and maximise your profits by indicating possible problems with your machinery within 36 hours of oil sample receipt at the laboratory. ALcontrol Oil Analysis Laboratory has over 30 years of experience in monitoring all types of lubricated systems; whatever your business, it will be able to advise you on the condition of your oil and machinery.

The principle of oil analysis is quite simple and can be compared to a human blood test, whereby a small sample of the circulating fluid can give in-depth readings into the health of the body it is servicing. Like a blood sample, a small amount of oil can show signs of contamination, degradation or wear and tear. It is these signs that our engineers use to aid maintenance personnel in avoiding unscheduled downtime and unexpected repairs.

All results are available on a secure client-interactive website, which enables engineers to plot trends and set sample schedules, aiding maintenance professionals in the process of condition monitoring.

ALcontrol Oil Analysis Laboratory also offers extensive BINDT-approved training courses in oil analysis and lubricant management at its state-of-the-art facility in North Wales. To obtain information on the laboratory's full range of services, please visit or telephone +44 (0)1492 574750.
