Parkland’s Ridgeline Lubricants has officially launched its Ridgeline Fluids Analysis program for maintenance professionals.
The new program offers a glimpse into engine performance in the mining, construction, trucking and industrial markets, it said, for professionals needing to detect engine problems before they occur.
“Ridgeline Fluids Analysis program provides a comprehensive analysis of your equipment’s used oil/fluids every time the fluids and lubricants are changed,” the company said, adding that it can provide critical insight into the performance trends of equipment.
“Going beyond just oil analysis, Ridgeline also offers coolant, fuel and diesel exhaust fluid analysis – all from a user-friendly app and website – for technicians and job-site managers who are on the go.”
Customers of the program can ship 4 to 6 ounces of used oil or fluid to the Ridgeline laboratory in a QR code-labeled test tube for the analysis of over 25 analytes, which will detect wear and contamination and determine fluid condition.
The test tube can be tracked and labeled in the app, where results will be shared.
In the interest of a quick result, the Fluids Analysis program delivers a time-sensitive 24- to 48-hour turnaround time and provides a quick and accurate trend analysis explaining the integrity of an engine.
There are two packages available in the program, Base and Summit, with pricing based on equipment needs and varied by geography.
“The program is an affordable and important asset to any maintenance program, especially when compared to the exorbitant cost of component failure and replacement,” the group said.
