Fluid and condition monitoring services for the rail industry
For the rail industry, we understand that good maintenance practice is vital in providing an efficient, safe and reliable mode of transport. Any type of mechanical system failure will lead to a delay or missed service - which can be extremely costly.
Fluid and condition monitoring has therefore become an important maintenance practice by the rail industry. With regular fluid and condition monitoring, the life cycle of the engine, transmissions and hydraulics can be extended, by identifying minor repairs before they become a major failure.
For example, changing from scheduled maintenance to condition monitoring could save a typical rail operator £40,000 per annum across a 20 strong fleet.
Our fluid and condition monitoring services can analyse oil, fuel, grease and coolant samples along with dielectric and element testing of transformer oils and aqueous liquids. Customers receive their results and our recommendations within 48 hours of the sample arriving at our laboratory. They can then view their sample data in "real-time" using our online Infotrak system.
