Mining & Construction

You have large fleets of equipment and cannot afford to be overwhelmed by mountains of data. We have a package of tests and analytics that will alert you to the things that will create the most downtime and costs, allowing you time to effectively manage the work that must get done.

Oil analysis is a proven technique for monitoring and maintaining the reliability of mobile fleet assets. Engines, transmissions, hydraulics and drivetrain components are all prone to contamination or oil-related failure modes which may have a significant effect on your bottom line. In order to maximize the benefits of oil analysis, it is important to select a test package that gives you the information and quality you’re looking for while staying within your budget. Fluid Life offers a series of standard test packages, along with a myriad of individual test options.

We can help you:

  • Detect failures at an early stage
  • Plan and schedule your mechanical repairs
  • Protect your warranty
  • Improve your fleet availability
  • Optimize the life of your equipment
  • Protect your Tier 4 engines
  • Prolong the life of your hydraulic systems
  • Optimize your oil drain intervals
  • Ensure quality and cleanliness of diesel fuel
  • Maintain cooling system efficiency
  • Increase your equipment resale value

Fluid Life takes a consultative approach to help you define and document the scope of your oil analysis program. Talk to a Fluid Life representative today to get the answers you’re looking for.

Test Packages


MOBILE 1 – Failure Finding

Fluid Life’s MOBILE1 package provides an overall assessment of the oil and the machine compartment that it was taken from. This test package identifies the most common lubricant failure modes, while satisfying all equipment OEM warranty requirements. This testing verifies that the correct oil is in use, and that the oil is cool, dry, and free of excessive wear debris. Engine oils are also monitored for signs of degradation or contamination from harmful contaminants such as diesel fuel or glycol.

MOBILE 2 – Contamination Control (Hydraulics)

Fluid Life’s MOBILE2 package provides an overall assessment of the oil and machine compartment, while providing a targeted focus on the lubricant condition of sensitive hydraulic components.

MOBILE 3 – Contamination Control (All Drivetrain Components)

Oil cleanliness plays a significant role in the overall reliability, longevity, and life-cycle costs of machine components. Fluid Life’s MOBILE3 test package is recommended for customers wishing to use oil analysis to monitor their own contamination control efforts. Fluid Life analysis goes well beyond the industry norm to determine not just the amount of contamination present but also where the particles are coming from and how they were generated. This extra step allows you to make proper, informed maintenance decisions on notoriously contaminated components.



MOBILE 4 – Lubricant and Component Life Extension

Fluid Life’s MOBILE4 package provides you with all the necessary information to safely and confidently extend or optimize drain intervals for ALL components. This package is for customers who wish to take their maintenance programs to the next level by performing condition based maintenance on their fleet. Changing oil based on condition not only reduces unnecessary maintenance but also ensures the maximum potential life from all your mobile assets.


 

When selecting a test package, please consider the following questions:

  1. What are your goals for the oil analysis program?
    – Early detection of failure conditions (predictive maintenance)
    – Monitoring contamination control efforts (proactive maintenance)
    – Measuring the extent of oil degradation (condition-based maintenance)
  2. Which approach is better suited for your operation:
    – Collecting samples frequently and trending basic information
    – Collecting samples less frequently, but reporting more in-depth information
  3. Can one test slate be used for monitoring all of your equipment, or do some assets warrant additional testing?
  4. If additional testing is warranted, how will this testing be requested (i.e. on a machine-based, time-based or condition-based schedule)?
