Cat® Oils are the lifeblood of your equipment so it’s important to test and analyse the oil to ensure no harmful contaminants have entered the system. We have the ability to analyse oil with our suite of Oil Analysis Programs.
Introduced in 1971, the S•O•SSM Program is the world’s leading oil analysis program for earthmoving equipment and diesel engines. Since its inception, the S•O•S Program has grown into the largest oil analysis program in the world.
Fluid samples collected at routine intervals are analysed by our laboratory and within 48 hours of receiving a fluid sample, a report is generated which can warn our customer of a wide variety of problems going on inside their equipment. For customers using our S•O•S urgent sample labels, results are available within 24 hours. Results and recommendations can be viewed online via the S•O•S Services Web application.
