Rail transport is at the heart of sustainable, environmentally friendly transport concepts. The transport of people or goods by rail will become increasingly important in the coming decades.

Rail vehicles contain a large number of different components whose reliable function and service life are also ensured by the used lubricant. Regularly performed lubricant analyzes have proven their performance especially in the monitoring of high-mileage components for many years. On the one hand, they allow the oil change intervals to be adapted to the economic requirements. At the same time trends in abnormal development of contamination and wear values ??identify negative developments at an early stage and can be treated proactively.
