1. Oil sampling
A visual inspection of your oil can only reveal so much. But ongoing analysis of your oil can help you identify small issues before they become large, costly problems. Use Cat S•O•SSM services for a comprehensive analysis of your machine’s lubricated systems: engines, transmissions, hydraulics, final drives, differentials, gear boxes and compressors. Analysis of your equipment’s oil can spot early signs of damaging wear metals. It also identifies contaminants that can hamper performance, such as water, fuel, glycol or dirt. Cat S•O•SSM Services check the condition of your oil and provide an overall particle analysis. Additional testing can also measure the levels of acidity or alkalinity in your oil to reduce premature wear or corrosion.
