An estimated 50% of all engine failures or poor performance incidents are associated with cooling system problems. For this reason, Peterson uses Caterpillar's S•O•S Coolant Analysis program. S•O•S Coolant Analysis is recommended for all cooling systems, regardless of the type of coolant used.
Coolant requirements for diesel engines are more severe than those of automotive engines. Diesel engines are designed to operate at higher temperatures and higher energy levels than engines in cars or small trucks. Today's heavy diesels produce a tremendous amount of power from a small package. This increases the requirements and demands placed on the cooling system.
How Can Peterson Trucks Help?
Peterson offers a two-level program that indicates a truck's overall cooling system condition and identifies issues with maintenance procedures and operational practices.
Level One: Basic Coolant Maintenance Check
Level Two: Comprehensive Cooling System Analysis
Coolant Analysis Can Save You Money
Used coolant disposal requirements have become more stringent and expensive. Fluid Analysis customers may extend their coolant drain intervals, or recycle or recondition their coolant, thereby reducing their disposal charges.
The Peterson Fluid Lab's interpretation of S•O•S and coolant analysis results are supported by nearly fifty years of database records and experience. Our knowledge of your trucks' maintenance and operational procedures, combined with our technical expertise, significantly enhances our ability to provide you with sound preventative maintenance advice, not just numbers or graphs.
Abnormal results are automatically sent to product support personnell to advise you on the most appropriate course of action. We build historical data on your fleet as part of a fully-integrated repair and maintenance program.
Our knowledge of International trucks is unmatched, and our direct working relationship with International helps us solve virtually all mechanical issues. Our employees know trucks inside and out, including all the makes and models of your fleet. The resources and experience network available through our organization gives you a huge advantage with any truck in your fleet.
How can fluid analysis make a difference in your fleet?
Your trucks have been engineered to precise standards to ensure peak performance, and fluids are an important factor in this equation. Failed or worn parts can be analyzed to provide vital performance information, and fluids can tell a similar story. Help avoid large repair bills and costly downtime with Peterson's S•O•S and Coolant Analysis programs.
After processing, each report is carefully reviewed, the results explained, and (if required) recommendations are made. All of this is to ensure that Peterson Fluid Analysis is truly your value-added service.
