HYDRAULIC OIL TESTING AND FLUID ANALYSIS PROFESSIONALS

Investing in dependable, high-quality equipment is one of the best ways to streamline and grow your local business and better serve your customers. By choosing Cat equipment and machinery, you’ve already taken a big step in creating value for your business and ensuring its success.

CB HYMAC provides comprehensive hydraulic fluid testing and emulsion stability testing services to help our clients lower the cost of operating and maintaining their machinery. Oil and fluid sampling and analysis determines the overall health of equipment and can detect potential operational issues before they become a problem.

With oil and hydraulic fuel analysis performed by the trained professionals at CB HYMAC, every time your machine’s oil is changed and sampled after 500 performance hours, you will have:

  • Better peace of mind: Regular oil and hydraulic fluid sampling is one of the best ways to identify equipment health issues and reduce unwanted downtime.
  • Ongoing savings: Well-maintained equipment delivers more reliable and efficient performance while lowering operating costs, streamlining your operations and boosting profits.
  • Greater predictability and awareness: The results provided by routine fluid testing can help you schedule regular maintenance visits and determine necessary upgrades during downtime.

HOW IT WORKS

When equipment operates in demanding work environments, excessive wear and tear can cause engine components and other parts to release contaminants into the oil, hydraulic fluid, fuel and other fluids.

Hydraulic oil testing, emulsion fluid testing, and hydraulic fluid analysis tests for the presence and level of contaminants — like elevated iron, chrome and silicone — and provides further insight into the health and efficiency of your machinery. Several contaminants can advance damage to your equipment and cause excessive wear to hydraulic cylinders and other parts, leading to premature failure.

CB HYMAC uses advanced tools and equipment to thoroughly evaluate a variety of characteristics from all of our oil, hydraulic fluid, and other fluid samples, including:

  • Wear metals
  • Water
  • Fuel dilution
  • For eight particles
  • Soot and suffer compounds
  • Viscosity
  • And more

With these fluid tests, our technicians will determine a baseline fluid quality factor. Using the latest fluid tests and our baseline readings, CB HYMAC can then evaluate fluid contamination levels, corrosion levels and equipment stability. When variances in the fluid quality present themselves, our team will then develop a proactive maintenance and repair plan according to your specific needs.

WHY HYDRAULIC FLUID ANALYSIS MATTERS

In the past, business owners had oil and fluid changes performed at routine intervals, usually after machinery showed signs of performance failure or low fluid level indicators lit up dashboards. Downtime during equipment maintenance was time-consuming and costly,  so it was simpler to delay fluid changes as long as possible.

Certain conditions like equipment run-times, extreme temperature fluctuations, and dirty or dusty work locations greatly affect the quality of oil, coolant, hydraulic fluid, and other fluids, accelerating wear and tear and requiring more frequent fluid changes. While equipment maintenance and repair is an inconvenience, your machinery relies on clean fluid and routine testing to streamline performance and guarantee long-term reliability and effectiveness.
