“Elizabeth will be focusing our team on the growth and advancement of our coolant offering,” said Cary Forgeron, Analysts Director of Sales & Marketing. “Her knowledge and extensive experience within the industrial and heavy duty markets is a great fit with Analysts’ testing capabilities and quality standards.”

Nelson has authored seven books and numerous technical papers on cooling system maintenance issues facing the industry. She has trained thousands of maintenance and reliability professionals on the impact coolant analysis can have on overall engine performance.

“Ten years ago, OEMs and maintenance managers didn’t give the cooling system much thought in the overall health of the engine,” Nelson said. “But today, through education, many are beginning to realize that the cooling system plays a vital role in the health of the lubrication system and the life expectancy of the engine and its components.”

Nelson said that proactive rather than reactive maintenance delivers a larger cost savings. “The key is a fluid analysis program that is easy to use with powerful technology for measuring results and managing your data to minimize unscheduled downtime. That can be transformational,” Nelson added.

Established in 1960, Analysts, Inc., is a full service oil analysis laboratory with eight testing facilities located throughout the United States, Mexico, Japan and China. The company is recognized worldwide as a leading provider of lubricant testing and analysis, diagnostic evaluations and maintenance recommendations for equipment reliability. Analysts’ services are utilized by a broad spectrum of industries, including production machinery, manufacturing equipment, power generation, marine, heavy construction, mining, trucking, transit and aircraft.
