Fluids Analysis - S•O•SSM Services

Holt cat certified fluids analysis, cat machine fluid analysis.

S•O•S measures wear in specific components by determining the amount of wear particles in the fluid from that component with real-time test results online. Plus, you don’t need an advanced degree in chemistry to take advantage of your oil, coolant or fuel sampling results. S·O·S Services provides knowledgeable interpretations and recommendations you can actually understand—and act upon.

HOLT offers efficient and innovative ways for you to obtain your results as soon as samples are processed in the lab.  Our trained personnel will:

  • Provide accurate analysis using tests designed by Caterpillar for Cat products;
  • Perform a quick turnaround, usually in 24 hours or less; and
  • Offer a knowledgeable interpretation, and recommendations to help you take action to avoid downtime.

Here are the top three reasons to put the expert detective work of the S·O·S Services team to work for your operation.

1. Avoid costly failures.

Allowing an issue to go to failure can double or triple your repair costs—or more. Prevent a small problem from becoming a major repair by leveraging a program that's designed to help you be successful.

2. Boost productivity and profitability.

Expert fluid analysis helps you manage overall equipment health, reducing owning and operating costs by knowing exactly when replacement components need to be changed.

3. Shorten repair time.

When you track what's going on behind the scenes—like component wear and oil performance—you can predict problems and schedule accordingly.
