Five Elements of Condition Monitoring
Schedule Oil Sampling (S•O•S) Fluid Analysis gives you detailed information about oil and coolant conditions, component wear, and more. Cat® S•O•S Fluid analysts know Cat equipment inside and out, making us your best, most knowledgeable source for fluid analysis.
Inspections are easy and effective at helping you spot equipment health issues. We can train your people on what to look for or perform the inspections for you as part of a Customer Support Agreement.
Equipment History includes all the service reports and recommendations for maintenance, inspections and repairs. This helps spot long-term performance trends and identifies opportunities to enhance service and maintenance practices.
Site Conditions is an assessment that helps evaluate a number of factors that could affect your long-term equipment health, including operation and maintenance practices, local site conditions and overall climate/seasonal conditions.
