Fluid Analysis

Since 1951, Gregory Poole has been striving to bring our clients in the government and defense sectors the latest and most sophisticated diagnostic tools available. We are proud to offer Cat® Scheduled Oil Sampling (S•O•S) — an advanced program that forms the basis of a complete, proactive fleet management solution.

What Is Scheduled Oil Sampling?

Scheduled oil sampling is a way of tracking the key health indicators of your equipment. Using S•O•S, we can see the composition of its oil, coolant and hydraulic fluids, tracking changes over time. As wearable parts deteriorate, they release trace amounts of various metals into the fluids of your heavy machinery. By tracking the levels of these metals, it is possible to know with accuracy when a part is about to fail, so you can schedule repairs accordingly.

Oil sampling can be informative when diagnosing a problem. For maximum effectiveness, however, you should do it at regular intervals to establish a baseline and monitor it over time.
