When it comes to modern preventative maintenance, it pays to use everything at your disposal capable of helping you better understand the condition of your fleet. An effective tool for early detection can mean the difference between success and failure for businesses that rely heavily on the performance of construction equipment, engines, power systems and machinery. Patten Cat provides access to the latest innovations in machine maintenance technology including expert S•O•S fluid analysis services.

S•O•S Services bring fluid sampling to the digital age with advanced analysis that delivers a clear picture of the condition of your machines on the inside. By regularly testing fluids such as oil and coolant, we’re able to document a historic profile that not only pinpoints a piece of equipment’s current health status, but also reveals trends that help diagnose issues early — before they grow to become major problems that lead to costly repairs.
