Types of Analysis
Our S•O•S Team will conduct a comprehensive analysis of your lubricated systems. This includes your engines, transmissions, hydraulics, final drives, differentials, gear boxes and compressors. The purpose of this analysis is to spot early signs of damaging wear metals. It also identifies contaminants like water, fuel, glycol or dirt that can impact performance. As part of this service, we will check the condition of your oil and provide an overall particle analysis.
Don’t overlook the condition of coolant. The damage caused by overheating can be costly. Our S•O•S Team will conduct a coolant analysis to determine if your coolant has the right chemical balance for maximum protection and cooling efficiency. As part of this service, we will assess correct usage, condition, adequate freeze/boil protection and contamination.
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. We’ll test your fuel and check for acceptable quality, contamination and appropriate usage.
