Our state-of-the-art laboratories in Antwerp and Shanghai use barcode reading to improve precision and increase sample throughput. The analysis always includes the metal content for a complete range of metals, such as wear metals and additive metals. We constantly monitor and calibrate our analytical equipment with reference samples. But we don't just rely on the latest technology. Our marine lubricant experts review every report and add commentary where appropriate. 


Sampling and mailing couldn't be easier. Just put your samples in the labelled vials, then send them in the pre-addressed sample bag to our Antwerp laboratory, or use the address label for our China location. For technical questions contact your local representative.
