Silicon In Used OIl Samples
Occasionally, those of us that do regular used oil sampling on stuff we run, have come across a spike in silicon in the sample. Usually associated with dirt contamination. I got this newsletter from my oil lab recently regarding this. This has some good information if anyone cares to take a read.

i hope views of this thread give u useful knowledge.With the use of oil analysis dust entry in engine. as soon as a dust entry problem occurs there is an increase in the silicon level of the oil and an acceleration of the wear pattern. As long as the oil samples are being taken at regular intervals in the correct manner, the dust entry will be detected at a very early stage. If effective corrective action is taken, the life of the component will be significantly increased, reducing maintenance costs.
