We monitor your oil with methods developed by Caterpillar and designed to evaluate the condition of your machine components, not just the condition of your oil.

WEAR RATE ANALYSIS

  • Detects the amount and type of wear metal elements present
    • When samples are taken at regular intervals these elements can be trended to often spot the onset of a progression towards failure
    • When classic wear element combinations are observed the source of rapid wear can often be determined
  • Monitors elements such as silicon that indicate dirt entry into the system Monitors certain additive levels in the oil

OIL CLEANLINESS ANALYSIS

  • 70% of hydraulic system failures are caused by some form of contaminant
  • Particle count analysis is used to detect metallic and non-metallic impurities in oil such as friction disc material or contamination, that are otherwise undetectable
  • Combined with wear rate analysis this provides a more comprehensive evaluation of hydraulic and power train component health

OIL CONDITION ANALYSIS

  • Determines lubrication properties of your oil.
  • Infrared analysis is used to test for soot, sulphation, oxidation and nitration, determines the extent of oil deterioration and if your oil is performing to spec

DETECTION OF FUEL, WATER & GLYCOL

  • Fluid contaminants can degrade oil performance rapidly and are often signs of problems elsewhere that could require immediate attention

VISCOSITY

  • Is a measure of your oil’s lubricity, or its ability to lubricate your machine’s internal moving parts

ADDITIONAL TESTS

  • TAN (Total Acid Number)
    Is a measure of the build-up of acidic by-products in your oil which can lead to corrosion and premature wear of internal metallic components
  • TBN (Total Base Number)
    Is a measure of your oil’s alkalinity reserve and its’ ability to neutralize acidic contaminants and preventing corrosion
  • Both TAN and TBN numbers can help to indicate when your oil should be changed

COOLANT ANALYSIS PROGRAM

Cooling system problems contribute to more than 50% of all engine related failures. Diesel engines produce a tremendous amount of power and heat that must be dissipated to keep your engine running properly.
