There’s more to coolant analysis than testing coolant formulations – it’s about identifying problems within the cooling system that can be detrimental to engine and lubrication system performance and lead to premature engine failure.
Coolant analysis can detect:
Coolant testing and analysis can:
Regular testing helps in predicting impending failures by identifying abnormalities and trends in sample results indicative of operational issues within the cooling system.
Coolant analysis is just as powerful as oil analysis in identifying areas for improvement in equipment operations and maintenance procedures.
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.
