The Cat S•O•S Services Program provides you with an accurate account on the health of your equipment, giving you the ability to schedule maintenance and oil changes more efficiently.
Effective preventative maintenance is estimated to be three to ten times more cost-effective than unscheduled maintenance and repair. In many instances, S.O.S has detected the need to replace a small part, which has prevented the failure of a major component.
Our state-of-the-art ISO 9001 certified in-house laboratory is staffed by specially trained technicians, experienced in a wide range of equipment brands. WesTrac specialist technicians conduct more than 400,000 oil tests a year on Cat and non-Cat machinery.

What is fluid analysis?
Fluid analysis is the process of sampling, testing and diagnosing the operating condition of fluids within your machine. The chemicals, metals and other elemental constituents found within a sample can “tip off” the health of major mechanical systems and components. We evaluate more than 30 characteristics from each sample. This allows us to gain a comprehensive picture of the health of your engine, transmission, powertrain and other wearable components. From each sample, our team is able to evaluate contamination levels, corrosion levels and stability.
