Turbine Oil Testing
We test aviation turbine lubricants and lubricants used in steam and stationary gas turbines. We specialize in supporting R&D programs and quality control. We are one of the leading independent testing laboratories in the world that specializes in testing high-performance turbine lubricants and turbine oils. We can perform more of the tests required under SAE AS5780A and MIL-PRF-23699G than any other laboratory in the world. We can also test turbine lubricants to MIL-PRF-7808 and MIL-PRF-5606 specifications. We have expanded our testing capabilities beyond aviation turbine lubricants to include lubricants used in steam and stationary gas turbines.
We specialize in supporting R&D programs and manufacturing quality control for base oil producers, additive manufacturers, and lubricant manufacturers. We also work with turbine engine and component manufacturers to understand the interaction between lubricants and new materials, such as metals, coatings and seal materials. We also perform turbine lubricant testing for CCGT power plants, airlines, airframe manufacturers, and many more industrial customers who are concerned about turbine lubricant quality.
Turbine oil characteristics vary widely depending on the intended applications. We perform a wide range of tests for turbine oils, and can perform testing on almost any type of turbine oil. Our testing services range from full specification certification to in-service monitoring to specific contamination testing.
