Coolant Testing

Coolant testing for engines and associated machinery

Coolant is an ever important part of the cooling system within an engine. With continuous improvements in engine designs the cooling systems have to work harder than ever to protect systems against failure. A major cause of these failures can be linked to incorrectly functioning cooling systems.

Monitoring the coolant’s additive health is very important and ensures correct cooling system operation. The coolant can often be exposed to contamination, coolant dilution, mixing, and oxidation due to extreme temperatures. Similar to lubricant analysis, the aim in coolant analysis is to monitor the health of the coolant as well as the health of the overall cooling system.

Coolant tests are performed by Intertek using a wide range of test methods and protocols and the service includes the sample kit, analysis, trending and online access:
