Forestry and agricultural equipment endures extensive hours of operation under sometimes extreme environmental conditions wrought with multiple sources of contamination. Monitoring machine fluids with oil analysis, coolant analysis and fuel analysis will ensure peak performance and extend equipment life and reliability.
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.
Oil analysis can be an extremely viable means for preventing gearbox failure, reducing downtime and controlling maintenance costs in heavy duty applications.
Coolant testing and analysis monitors changes in coolant properties due to chemical reactions occurring within the cooling system before they escalate to engine or coolant system failure.
Comprehensive testing identifies the need for purification, fortification of antioxidant additives and/or the addition of microbiological controls.
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.
