Oil analysis has been used worldwide as a method of reducing maintenance costs, improving reliability and productivity and providing peace of mind in various industries such as railways, sea transport, airlines, large fleets, etc. Advanced warning of abnormal situations in high-value critical assets can provide important options otherwise unavailable to decision-makers. Through the identification of potential failures it is possible to avoid secondary damage, and also save on subsequent maintenance costs that would arise if a catastrophic failure were to occur. Additionally, a better understanding of the nature of the problem can be obtained, reducing uncertainty about maintenance actions.

This paper presents the results obtained from an oil analysis programme for railway locomotive diesel engines carried out in the last five years in the Spanish National Railway Company (Renfe).
