The energy industry hinges on the continuous production of products and is a highly critical industry. Any hurdle or failure in production can significantly affect the providers’ as well as customers’ businesses. Thus, several highly dependable technologies and systems are used to run the show consistently. Portable oil analyzers are one such system. Most of the customers involved in revenue generation of the industry are government organizations, large manufacturing industries, or the utility sector. Thus, the processes are handled with extra care to prevent any breakdown of normal functions.
A portable oil analyzers market provides immediate and comprehensive analysis to different types of oil such as hydraulic, fuel, and coolant, and analyses the physical properties of oil. The portable oil analyzer can be used for evaluating lubricant condition while eliminating lubricant mix-up. The portable oil analyzer analyses the presence of debris i.e. remains of oil and its source leading to contamination or degradation of oil. The instrument combines the fluid scan oil condition monitor, the laser net oil debris monitor, and a commercial viscometer into a sole mobile instrument that is computer controlled. Earlier, it was made to address the requirement of fleet support personnel for instantaneous, actionable information during shipboard maintenance operations. Comprehensive oil analysis, comprising both fluid condition and lube oil debris is an important part of machinery maintenance for which portable oil analyzers are used. The portable oil analyzer provides comprehensive analysis through ferrous monitoring, and infrared spectroscopy, provides the total base number/total acid number, counting the coolants and particles, elemental spectroscopy, measures and monitors viscosity of the oil. The analyzers can be used to monitor in-service machinery oil and for extending oil change intervals in engines and back-up generators.
Key drivers of the global portable oil analyzers market is growing digitization within energy industries to proficiently monitor critical systems and reduce production and downtime. Similarly, to become more efficient, equipment installations in the energy sector are becoming lighter and smaller; machine parts being installed are also becoming lighter and smaller. Demand for portable oil analyzers is projected to increase due to better competence and accuracy. With smaller dimension, demand for oil purity used for lubrication is also increasing. Portable oil analyzers market also help analyze oil on various parameters such as temperature, viscosity, moisture, and wear particle. This helps in keeping a check on the impurities or contamination in oil, in order to increase the oil purity. Thus, with all these drivers, demand for portable oil analyzers market is likely to increase during the forecast period.
The global portable oil analyzers market can be categorized based on oil type, solution type, services, end-use, and region. On the basis of oil type, the portable oil analyzers market can be bifurcated into used oil and fresh oil analysis. In a condition monitoring program based on used oil analysis, a sample, or several oil samples, are taken from a piece of equipment and sent to the laboratory for analysis. Based on the analysis, a diagnostic report is made and sent for endorsement to the person responsible for the equipment. The solution types can be further segmented into viscosity monitoring, particle counting, infrared spectroscopy, and elemental analysis. The services segment can be divided into consulting & planning, integration & implementation, operation & maintenance, and managed services. In terms of end-use, the portable oil analyzers market can be segregated into corporate and government. In terms of region, the portable oil analyzers market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America.
Major players operating in the global portable oil analyzers market include AMETEK Spectro Scientific, and AZoM.com Limited or AZoNetwork. These companies are investing significantly in research and development to include new technologies in their solutions and develop new products to gain portable oil analyzers market share. Furthermore, these companies are entering into partnerships with other local players in the industry to expand their presence and customers in specific regions.
