Ferrography is a powerful tool used for oil analysis. It involves separating out solid particles from a lubricant and examining them under a microscope checking characteristics like particle size, concentration, composition, morphology and surface condition of the ferrous and non-ferrous wear particles. A skilled operator can classify the wear debris and make conclusions about the how much a piece of equipment is wearing as well as its performance and maintenance requirements.
