Providing fluid analysis & diagnostic services for: Power Generation & Distribution, Road & Rail Transport, Construction, Mining, Industrial and Marine What Is Fluid Check: Fluid Check analysis is Global Lubricants market leading complete fluid analysis programme for monitoring all types of fluid lubricated and insulating oil systems. In all cases your machinery represents a significant investment by your company and it is so critical it remains operational at all times. Failure of your machinery can result in loss of operation, with associated costs running at times into thousands of pounds an hour. Imagine if your business was suddenly unable to provide its services or product, consider the damage it could do to your business and your customers’ confidence in you to deliver on time or even at all…it must not happen – if it can be avoided! Our aim is to help you succeed in making the most of your vehicles and machinery through reducing unplanned downtime, extending oil drains and detecting potential future failure…before they happen!

 

What is Condition Based Monitoring (CBM)

Fluid Check Analysis achieves its aim to improve customers’ productivity and equipment reliability by a simple principle of condition based monitoring. (CBM)

Imagine an oil sample for an engine was taken every month for a year and 3 elements were measured as shown in the graph. In April there is an increase in certain elements, namely Silicon (from environmental dirt), aluminium (from piston wear) and Iron (from Liner wear) caused by dirt ingress into the system and detected by oil analysis. Owing to the associated wear metals being attributed to upper cylinder (U/C) wear the most likely source of the dirt ingress would be through the air intake system, hence one of our expert diagnosticians has recommended the client checks the air induction system for the source of dirt ingress. This enabled the customer to identify an air filter problem existed before an engine failure and the values returned to normal levels over the coming months. Hence the ultimate failure was avoided, there was no unplanned maintenance and the engine life has been extended. Work can be done when the oil analysis identifies the problem, not merely because the engine was due for its pre-scheduled maintenance slot, which might have been weeks away.

Automotive & Road Haulage

Your vehicle fleet is your most significant investment and with increasing fuel costs and decreasing profit margins, keeping your equipment at peak performance can be the difference between profit and loss. Global's Fluid Check programme helps you keep your vehicles running efficiently and saves you money. A recent Study with a large road fleet operator found for every £1 spent with Fluid Check, the operator saved £4.50.

How Fluid Check can help:

  • Reduce vehicle downtime
  • Identify excessive fuelling.
  • Reduce unnecessary oil changes
  • Extend oil drain intervals – reducing lubricant costs & waste production.
  • Identify poor fuel and Adblue supplies and contamination.
  • Independent analysis in warranty cases to identify the root cause of failure.
  • Confirmation engine oil meets its new oil specification

Types of analysis:

  • Lubricated systems: Detecting contamination, confirming suitability of the lubricant, monitoring wear and identifing root causes of problems before they lead to a failure. Systems monitored include engine, transmission, gear/axle, power-steering and brake fluids.
  • Fuel Systems: Test Diesel to full road diesel specifications with various custom test suites. Identify petrol, water, microbes.
  • Adblue Systems – Confirm your Adblue meets the ISO 22241-2 and DIN V70070. Identify contamination with tap water, coolant, screen-wash, supply issues.
  • Coolant Systems – Your anti-freeze is not just to stop your coolant system freezing, it also has an important role in cooling the engine. If your engine oil is not lasting as long as it should be, or your engine is running hot, then confirming the coolant condition may be a good place to start.

Construction, Mining & Industrial

Loss of production at a manufacturing facility or mining site because of failed equipment can cost thousands of pounds per hour.

How Fluid Check can help:

  • Reduce machine downtime
  • Identify excessive fuelling.
  • Reduce unnecessary oil changes
  • Extend oil drain intervals – reducing lubricant costs & waste production.
  • Identify poor fuel and Adblue supplies and contamination.
  • Independent analysis in warranty cases to identify the root cause of failure.

Types of analysis:

  • Lubricated systems: Monitor contamination, wear metals and identify root causes of problems before they lead to failure of your system. We can test engine, hydraulic, transmission, swing boxes, differentials, greased bearings etc.
  • Fuel Systems: Test Diesel to full road diesel and off-road mobile machinery specifications with various custom test suites. Identify petrol, water, microbes, contaminated on site bulk storage tanks etc.
  • Adblue Systems – Some newer machines may now have adblue systems fitted. Confirm your adblue meets the ISO 22241-2 and DIN V70070. Identify contamination with tap water, coolant, screen-wash, supply issues.
  • Coolant Systems – Your anti-freeze just not just stop your coolant system freezing, it also has an important role in cooling the engine. If your engine oil is not lasting as long as it should be, or your engine is running hot, then confirming the coolant condition may be a good place to start.
