Unit Registration and Sample Information
The accurate labelling and registering of lubricant samples is essential in the process of providing ongoing feedback and trends.
  • Record information like equipment make and model being tested. Different makes and models use different wear tables for trend analysis.
  • Always list the Company name, Unit ID and the Compartment Type the same each time.
  • Be aware that if you list a unit ID differently each time eg Unit XYZ-207, Unit XYZ/207 and Unit XYZ 207 each change will create three separate files disconnecting history. Similarly, a unit tagged as a gear box will be different to a unit tagged as a transmission etc.
  • Keep the tear off slip and refer to the number on the tear off slip when looking for results.
  • If you have several machines call the Castrol Technical Helpdesk on 1300 557 998 to Pre-Register your equipment. Pre registering your equipment will help will maximise the benefits of you oil analysis samples.
