Real Services

REAL Services is the most comprehensive PDM Laboratory with practical experience relating Equipment Particle Analysis (Ferrography) and used lubricant analysis for capital equipment reliability assessment to provide a return on investment of your PM Program.

Equipment Condition/Ferrography

Equipment Condition: REAL Services provides monetary savings from the start. By supplying comparable quantitative and qualitative data for a wide variety of tests every time a sample is submitted for testing and analysis, REAL Services provides relevant information about your capital investment, your Equipment. REAL Services provides relevant information about your capital investment, your Equipment. Cutting edge technology developed for the Department of Defense, allows REAL Services’ testing to determine the “EQUIPMENT CONDITION” going beyond the “Fluid Condition” at an affordable price.

REAL Services’ easy sampling identifies various equipment problems:

  • Alignment Problems
