Fluids treatment and analysis

The regular fluids analysis on your machine will protect you from unscheduled repairs, early replacements and costly downtime.

THE S.O.S.™ PROGRAM

The S.O.S™ program (Scheduled Oil Sampling) offered by
JA Delmas consists in conducting scheduled oil, coolant and fuel analysis on your machines.

Based on testing protocols elaborated by Caterpillar, they provide valuable information on your equipment condition.

Once the samples collected by our teams or yours are received, we are able to provide an analysis report as well as customized recommendations within 24 to 72 hours maximum. Simple, fast and effective.

The benefits :

  • Detection and elimination of issues before they become critical
  • Scheduled downtime according depending on the workload
  • Ensure the proper execution of basic maintenance programs
  • Reduction in the costs of repair

OUR LABORATORIES

Close to your operations, our laboratories can be found in our Components Rebuild Centers (CRC) located in Burkina Faso, in Cote d’Ivoire and Mali.

They take care locally of all the analysis, evaluate the results, and create complete reports for all our representations in West Africa.

Fully equipped with brand new, latest generation equipment, our chemists are trained to detect contaminants, control the condition of your machines, and seek for any sign of abnormal wear in your fluids.
