Fluid Analysis

Analyzing system fluids from your cranes, boom trucks, and
machinery reveals actual internal conditions

  • Contaminant levels predict component failures and determine when to replace filters and change oil
  • Fluid analysis records prove your equipment has been maintained and help increase resale value
  • Any make, any model

Cranes & Material Handling offers fluid analysis kits to monitor the internal health of your crane. Performing fluid analysis at regular intervals ensures that potential problems in your crane's systems will be spotted as early as possible.

What Is Fluid Analysis?

By extracting fluids from several areas of your crane and analyzing the level of contaminants, Cranes and Material Handling can predict potential component failures. As components wear, microscopic pieces will appear in the fluids throughout the machine's parts. By analyzing which metals are appearing where and in what concentration, the remaining life of each component can actually be predicted, so that you can anticipate when major repairs may be necessary.

Laboratory Accreditation

The fluid analysis laboratories that Cranes & Material Handling uses are ISO 17025 A2LA accredited, which is the highest level of quality certification for testing laboratories by the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation. You can be confident that the fluid analysis results are accurate, repeatable and backed by stringent laboratory standards.

Service and Repair Recommendations

By evaluating the results of your crane's fluid analysis, Cranes & Material Handling can provide guidance on necessary repairs and filter and oil change intervals.

Sampling Intervals

Manufacturers recommend sampling intervals for each crane model. Also consider how critical each crane is to your production in determining sampling frequency. You may want to reduce the hours between sampling periods for cranes operating under more stressful conditions.
