Savant Labs
A World of Lubrication Understanding®

Grease Testing

Determine the suitability of a grease for specific applications, i.e., high and low temperatures, high and low loads, or wet applications. Grease testing available for industry specifications, including industrial, military, and automotive.  Savant Labs offer innovative approaches to grease oxidation and wear testing. 

With the launch of the National Lubricating Grease Institute’s (NLGI) New High-Performance Multiuse (HPM) grease specification, Savant Labs are positioned to address your HPM grease testing needs.
