Oil analysis and fluids testing for freight and trucking fleets is critical. Whether over-the-road or captive, these trucks are on tight schedules with constant pressure to make deliveries safely and on time. Short or long hauls with heavy loads can wreak havoc on engine components.
The biggest concerns in maintaining diesel engine health are wear and contamination. Routine testing and analysis can pinpoint small problems before they become big failures and save you money and equipment.
Comprehensive testing identifies the need for purification, fortification of antioxidant additives and/or the addition of microbiological controls.
Left undetected, wear and contamination issues can result in catastrophic failure. Monitoring machine fluids with oil analysis, coolant analysis and fuel analysis will ensure peak performance and extend equipment life and reliability.
Routine oil analysis monitors the condition of both the lubricant (contamination) and individual machine components (wear). Coolant analysis monitors changes in coolant properties, due to chemical reactions occurring within the cooling system, before they escalate to failure. It also identifies coolant mixing and deficiencies in cooling system maintenance practices.
Testing fuel deliveries can reduce operational expenses and ensure satisfactory ignition and combustion, compatibility with fuel injection systems and convenient handling at all levels without degradation or contamination.
Bureau Veritas offers multiple levels of fluid testing and analysis and can develop test slates specific to application and equipment type.
