S•O•S℠ Program

The S•O•S℠ (Scheduled Oil Sampling) Program is a series of diagnostic tests which analyze the lubricating oils used in mechanical equipment.

This program was developed to help customers realize the highest possible value from their equipment by minimizing repair costs and maximizing machine availability and life. Analyzing the oils helps to identify problems early before a component failure occurs, thus reducing repair costs and downtime.


With more than 31 years of experience in oil analysis, Trakindo has used the S•O•S℠ Program to monitor more than 15,000 units of equipment and maintains complete history for Cat and other brands of equipment using various types of oil and fluids. Reports are generated through an online system and supplied with recommendations from our experienced oil analysis interpreters. The S•O•S℠ Laboratory not only receives fluid samples from heavy equipment, but also from non-heavy equipment such as industrial, marine, oil and gas, transportation.

Tests have been developed by S•O•S℠ Program to support preventive maintenance programs using standard methods from ASTM for oil analysis parameters such as: Wear Analysis, Oil Condition Analysis, Physical Test, Oil Cleanliness and Oil Contamination. The S•O•S℠ Laboratory can also customize analysis of fluid samples based on specific customer requests and parameters. Fluid samples are normally processed and reports released within 2-4 days (max) of receipt at Trakindo branch.

1. Oil Analysis: Component wear rate (Wear element, Particle count) Oil condition (Viscosity, Sulfation, Oxidation, Nitration), Oil contamination (Soot, Water, Coolant, Fuel dilution, & Oil identification.

2. Coolant Analysis: Boil and Freeze Protection, Coolant condition (pH, Conductivity, Nitrite, Physical inspection) and Coolant contamination (Foam, Oil & Fuel Presence).

3. Fuel Analysis: FAME, Density, Flash point, Particle count, Viscosity, Sulphur & Water content.
