ANAC industrial analysis service provides comprehensive lubricant oil analysis across a range of industries, including automotive manufacturing, chemical, energy production, food, metalworking, paper, textiles, wood production and others.

ANAC lube oil analysis can be used alongside other condition-based maintenance methods in order to:

  • Monitor changes in the oil's state
  • Assess machine operating conditions
  • Minimize maintenance costs
  • Reduce production downtime
  • Plan the maintenance operations
  • Optimize oil drain intervals
  • Ensure that the lubricant is the best suited for the application and operating conditions.
  • Identify possible pollution sources

Diagnosis and Comments


The ANAC Indus diagnostic of an oil relies on:

  • Commercial name and grade (type)
  • Application, e.g. Hydraulic
  • Industry, e.g. paper industry
  • Machine characteristics
    • Criticality
    • Tank capacity
    • Operating conditions
  • Previous analyses:
    • Oil history
    • Machine history
  • Remarks and comments written by the user

The ANAC Diagnosis Report


The ANAC report will be sent by e-mail within 72 hours (standard timeline) after the lab received the oil test kit.

The data from the report can now be used in any maintenance or lubrication software!

TOTAL Lubrifiants also provides a lubrication software and lubrication management systems for a wide variety of different applications.
