SGS Enters Into License Agreement with
LogiLube for SmartLab™ Technology
LARAMIE, WYOMING, - (May 7, 2018)
SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing, and certification company, has signed a license agreement with LogiLube, LLC for the company’s SmartLab™ system. The agreement gives SGS Oil Condition Monitoring customers access to a platform that offers end-to-end chain of custody for fluid sampling and testing, as well as a cloud-based data repository and a web-based or mobile app portal for instantly reviewing the results of the SGS laboratory analysis.
“SGS signed this license agreement with LogiLube to enable our customers to gain a competitive advantage by diagnosing equipment operating issues which are detectable through fluid sampling analysis and providing instant feedback to asset owners which can corroborate the data on suspected root causes,” said Linda Perry, Branch Manager for SGS OCM North America. “Combining LogiLube’s SmartOil™ online digital oil condition monitoring platform, we can offer our clients the option of real-time oil condition monitoring. Every 30-seconds the SmartOil™ system updates a secure web dashboard with parameters such as viscosity, particles, and contaminates such as water or coolant,” adds Perry.
LogiLube’s SmartLab™ works using either automated or manual fluid sampling. Using the SmartLab™ mobile app, fluid samples from such equipment as wind turbine gearboxes, are collected for shipment and catalogued using QR codes on the equipment and bar codes on the fluid sample container. This process timestamps the fluid samples and provides the opportunity for correlation of sample data to asset operational data. Fluid samples are then packaged and shipped overnight to one of the 34 Global SGS Oil Condition Monitoring labs in for immediate analysis per a customer defined test slate.

Fluid samples undergo a SGS tribologist review according to ASTM and ISO parameters. The results of the analysis are standardized in a report which is instantly uploaded to SGS clients through the online LogiLube SmartLab™ portal, accessible by web portal or smartphone app.
The fluid sampling analysis results are simultaneously sent to LogiLube’s secure, cloud-based
servers where trend analysis on lubricant, hydraulics or other fluid failure modes across
operational fleets can be performed using data analytics powered by LogiLube’s machine
“SmartLab™ provides a comprehensive field-to-lab-to-client solution for secure collection and
analysis of fluid samples, as well as sample data analysis by certified SGS tribologists” says Bill Gillette of LogiLube. “We are delighted to be working in collaboration with SGS on providing chain of custody for the fluid samples which are tested to the highest standards, plus secure data analytics and client-side
