Coolant / Cooling Waters

Coolant / Cooling waters Testing

coolant analysis is a fantastic tool to detect problems early. It is applicable to any closed loop cooling system from vehicle engines, food coolers, boiler water and other inhibited water systems.

The Benefits of Coolant Analysis

Equipment manufacturers have stated that as high as 40% of all engine failures are related to improperly maintained cooling systems. Over-maintaining your system with excessive supplement inhibitors can be as detrimental as under-maintaining your coolant.

This vital system is typically the most neglected, least understood component of the modern engine. Regular coolant testing and routine maintenance can achieve maximum system efficiency and identify potential problems before they become catastrophic failures.

  • Extend coolant drain intervals
  • Extend equipment life
  • Identify minor problems before they become major failures
  • Maximize asset reliability

Coolant analysis can detect:

  • Metal corrosion
  • Combustion gas leaks
  • Contamination
  • Electrical ground problems
  • Localised overheating
  • Chemical breakdown

When an internal combustion engine burns fuel, heat is created at temperatures as high as 220 C. Some form of cooling must remove this heat. The two most common ways to dissipate heat are by liquid cooling and sometimes by air cooling.
