Grease test kit

Portable grease analysis kit for field use

SKF Grease Analysis Kit TKGT 1
Lubricant analysis is a vital part of a predictive maintenance strategy. Until recently, however, oils were almost always analysed despite the fact that around 80% of bearings are lubricated with grease. Tribology expertise and years of research have allowed SKF to develop a complete methodology to assess grease condition.
  • Extremely useful in field decision-making processes
  • Allows adjustment of grease relubrication intervals according to real conditions
  • Grease can be evaluated to detect possible unacceptable deviations from batch to batch
  • Allows verification of the suitability of certain greases in specific applications
  • Helps in the prevention of damage due to underperforming lubricant greases
  • Provides more information on root cause analysis
  • Requires no special training to perform the tests
  • Requires no harmful chemicals
  • Small sample sizes required. Only 0,5 g of grease is needed to perform all the tests
