SOS Fluid Analysis

The condition of the fluids in your equipment and engine says a lot about its overall health. Over time, replaceable components wear down and release traces of metal into engine and hydraulic oil — by monitoring the presence of these metals, we can anticipate when service will be necessary and schedule repairs accordingly.

3 TYPES OF FLUID ANALYSIS

Oil Analysis

Our comprehensive analysis of your lubricated systems—engines, transmissions, hydraulics, final drives, differentials, gear boxes and compressors—spots early signs of damaging wear metals. It also identifies contaminants like water, fuel, glycol or dirt that can impact performance. We check the condition of your oil and provide an overall particle analysis.

Coolant Analysis

Don’t overlook the condition of coolant. The damage caused by overheating is hard to forget. Our tests determine if your coolant has the right chemical balance for maximum protection and cooling efficiency. We assess correct usage, condition, adequate freeze/boil protection and contamination. Choose from two levels of coolant testing: one that checks routine characteristics and another that provides more in-depth analysis.

Fuel Analysis

Poor quality fuel can affect how your equipment performs. It can lead to abnormal wear of components, valves, valve guides, piston rings and more—and drive up maintenance and operating costs. Our fuel testing program checks for acceptable quality, microbial growth, contamination and appropriate usage.
