Fluid Analysis

One of the most important steps you can take to maintain the performance and prolong the useful life of your heavy equipment is to conduct a regular fluid analysis. By checking the oil, coolant, hydraulic fluid and other vital fluids for dirt, water and other contaminants, you can accurately assess their overall health.

Detecting fluid contamination in the early stages can significantly enhance the machine maintenance process and even help prevent unexpected breakdowns and premature equipment failure.


Taking a good S•O•SSM Sample is the first and most critical step of the S•O•SSM Process. Learn more about how to take a good sample by viewing the provided video.
