Keep your machine running smoothly
Cooling system testing is often overlooked, but damage that could occur from overheating won’t be overlooked or forgotten. Our coolant testing is an easy way determine whether your coolant has the right chemical balance for maximum system protection and cooling efficiency.
You get out what you put in
Don’t forget about your diesel fuel. Poor-quality fuel can affect how your equipment performs—including abnormal wear of components, valves, valve guides, piston rings, and more.
Spot problems before they happen
Visual oil inspections are limited to the larger particles. We can spot early signs of damaging wear metals, the condition of your oil, overall particle analysis, and identify contaminants.

1ppm is like one drop of milk in… 40 gallons of coffee!
Now, that’s small!
When you’re testing fluids, you’ve got to see what operators can’t. Concentration of elements is shown in parts per million (ppm). For comparison, 1 ppm is like:
- One drop of milk into 40 gal. of coffee
- A half teaspoon of milk into a pick-up bed of coffee;
- A half-gallon of milk in an Olympic-sized pool of coffee
