There is more to coolant analysis than testing coolant formulations. It can identify problems within the cooling system that can be detrimental to engine and lubrication system performance and lead to premature engine failure such as cavitation, corrosion, air leaks, glycol degradation, localized overheating, combustion gas leaks, acid formation and electrolysis.
There are four main objectives of coolant analysis:
1. Preventive Maintenance – monitor coolant condition to find small problems before they become big failures
2. Predictive Maintenance – identify trends in test results to identify mechanical or formulation issues
3. Life Cycle Management – identify insufficient maintenance practices
4. Component Failure Identification – identify the root cause when catastrophic failures do occur
