Oil/lubricant Analysis


Oil/lubricant analysis

We have an exact analysis made of the oil and lubricants at SGS Vernolab.

As an option to be booked, we offer an oil test of boat engines and generators as part of our inspection. E/M/S offers in cooperation with SGS Vernolab lubricant analysis and used oil testing for your new boat / yacht. The laboratory results provide you with information about the interior of the boat engine or generator. Based on determined values, already occurred as well as imminent damages can be mapped with a good probability.

If desired, the engine oil analysis can also be extended to include a technical engine test. Depending on the engine, data such as operating hours, service intervals, etc. can be read out. The readout of the engine data as well as an extended engine test within the scope of a sea trial (test drive of several hours with various tests of the boat) can be booked as an order via the item further option in addition.

From now on, you can rely on the know-how that SGS has built up over many decades and in 28 countries for used oil analyses. You benefit from the world’s largest database with over 450,000 machine data. You receive the result together with your E/M/S survey report: fast, clear and comprehensibly formulated.

As a standard we recommend an engine oil analysis for privately used motorboats and motor yachts, which

  • have not been used for a long time
  • have a lot of Bh in the market
  • were driven only few Bh
  • are older than 10 years

commercially used motorboats and motor yachts, which show

  • an experienced high utilisation
  • have run many Bh
  • are older than 5 years

Findings of our expert on site can also give reason for a recommendation for an analysis of engine oil or hydraulic oil within the E/M/S survey.
