Bureau Veritas’s coolant analysis program takes the guesswork out of cooling system maintenance. Coolant testing at regularly scheduled maintenance intervals can identify system problems before catastrophic engine failure occurs, which saves time and money in multiple ways:
Decreases engine and cooling system repairs
Eliminates unnecessary coolant drains
Lessens coolant replacement and disposal costs
Coolant Analysis Test Packages
Coolant Analysis has four goals:
Goal #1 – Preventive Maintenance
Coolant testing and analysis monitors changes in coolant properties due to chemical reactions occurring within the cooling system before they escalate to failure. It can determine if:
the coolant is suitable for continued use
coolant mixing has occurred
additives depletion is compromising metal protection
contaminants are present that can cause scale or acid formation
coolant should be removed and replenished with new coolant
Goal #2 – Predictive Maintenance
Regular testing helps predict impending failures by identifying abnormalities and trends in sample results indicative of operational issues within the cooling system.
Goal #3 – Life Cycle Management
Coolant analysis is just as powerful as oil analysis in identifying areas for improvement in equipment operations practices and maintenance procedures.
Goal #4 – Component Failure Identification
Testing can identify engine or cooling system component failures such as blown head gaskets, EGR cooler failures, electrolysis, defective pressure caps or plugged coolant lines.
