boat check oil analyses laboratory

As an option that can be booked, we offer an oil test of boat engines and generators as part of our test. In cooperation with SGS Vernolab, E/M/S offers you lubricant analyses and used oil tests for your new boat / yacht. The laboratory results give you information about the inside of the boat engine or the ship generator. Based on the values determined, damage that has already occurred or is imminent can be mapped with a good probability. On request, the engine oil analysis can also be extended by a technical engine test. Depending on the engine, data such as operating hours, service intervals etc. can be read out. The readout of the engine data as well as an extended engine test within the scope of a sea trial (several hours of test drive with various tests of the boat) can be booked as an order under the item further option.

With immediate effect you can fall back on the know-how that SGS has built up for many decades and in 28 countries for used oil analyses.
