Excessive foaming and too slow an air release of dispersed air in gear oils have a negative influence on the load carrying capacity of gears and bearings. In addition, excessive foaming can result in oil leaking at shaft seals and breather screws. This is why gear oils should be checked for foaming characteristics and air release properties.

SGS Herguth now offers the patented Grease Thief® for its grease analysis. The Grease Thief® offers incomparable benefits as a field tool and unmatched efficiency for grease sampling and analysis because it only takes one gram of grease.
The Grease Thief® tool allows you to secure a repeatable, representative, in-service grease sample to submit for analysis.
The Field Advantages of Grease Thief®: Reliable | Repeatable | Streamlined
The non-Newtonian flow properties of grease make it difficult to collect representative, in-service samples. Historically, equipment operators were forced into expensive machinery disassembly in order to collect representative samples or to take readily available samples from locations that were not representative of lubrication conditions. These poor choices limited the value of grease analysis.
The Grease Thief’s unique and inventive design allows you to collect a representative, one gram, sample every time. The small grease volume and innovative sampling methods ensure that operators can now include grease analysis as part of a complete predictive maintenance program.
