Why Oil Analysis?

Unscheduled downtime is an organization’s number one enemy. In an environment where  equipment is expected to run 24 hours-a-day, 7 days-a-week under extreme operating  conditions, equipment failure can quickly bring production to a halt. This can turn your normal workday run into an excruciating marathon.

What if Oil Analysis could help you prevent downtime?

Imagine being able to see exactly what’s happening inside your equipment. You could prevent failure, enhance machine performance and gain a competitive edge. That’s where Trico can help.
