Whether it's about houses, streets, industrial buildings or bridges – construction machines are an integral part of our lives. The variety of the individual types is enormous: excavators, wheel loaders, dump trucks, concrete mixers or concrete pumps, graders or compactors.

Construction machinery and other mobile equipment contain a variety of different assemblies whose reliable function and life are ensured by the lubricant. In addition, construction machines work under adverse conditions: changing temperatures, humidity and dust at the same time as the highest levels of stress.

This is why oil monitoring in construction machines has been very important for many years. Oil analyzes not only make it possible to significantly increase the service life of the oil filling. At the same time they provide reliable information on abnormal wear and the increased entry of impurities. Potential disorders can be detected early and treated proactively.

  • How lubricants and lubrication work in principle
  • Which lubricants are used in which components and why
  • What special features to consider when using organic oils
  • What are the advantages of synthetic oils and where does their use make sense?
  • How the required quality of the lubricants can be safely described
  • How professional oil monitoring works and helps to increase reliability and availability
  • How the professional handling of lubricants avoids recurring practice problems
