Pro tip: in that schedule, make allowances for machines that need to be tagged out or locked out when pulling samples.
PULL the correct amount of oil from the correct spot in your equipment.
Pro tip: fill the bottle, but leave a small amount of air in the top to allow for expansion during shipping.
SHIP the samples promptly to ensure accurate readings from your oil analysis test.
Pro tip: if samples sit around on desks or in the office, it can skew your results. Get them sent in ASAP!
