Welcome to Swansea Tribology Services

Welcome to Swansea Tribology Services - a UK based laboratory providing oil analysis services both throughout the UK and overseas.

We provide analysis of lubricating and hydraulic oils, fuels, coolants and greases as well as filter and wear analysis, other specialist advice, consultancy and other services. Condition monitoring through lubricant analysis warns of developing faults and conditions early and allows more efficient planning of maintenance and allocation of resources.
