    The Grease Thief
    The consistency of grease plays a critical role in its function as a lubricant. Most consistency measurement methods are designed for use with newly manufactured greases where there is no constraint on the quantity available. The Grease Thief sampling & analysis system overcomes these sampling and analysis obstacles by providing a reliable and cost-effective grease analysis solution with as little as one gram of grease.
    The Grease Thief is used in laboratories across the world
    The Grease Thief sampling tool
