FREE: Introduction to Uptime Elements Reliability Framework and Asset Management System

According to AES Defence, the Machine Care Plus service uses oil analysis to reduce support costs by pinpointing potential failures that can be caused by contamination, defective fuel injection and/or cooling systems, excessive component wear or incorrect operating or maintenance procedures. Brett Minges, POLARIS Vice President of Sales, said the newpartnership is an excellent fit.

Quality testing and accurate test results lay the foundation for actionable maintenance recommendations that allow for planned, condition-based maintenance, Minges said. Performing maintenance based on fluid and equipment condition rather than on pre-determined maintenance intervals or usage not only identifies potential failure but saves money in unnecessary wrench time. Recognized for exceptional turnaround time in identifying and controlling contamination, the primary focus of the AES Early Failure Detection Centre is on the assemblies and systems fitted to British Army equipment based in the UK, Germany, Canada and operations world-wide. POLARIS is very proud to know that our services will be contributing to the readiness of the British Military, said Bryan Debshaw, POLARIS Laboratories CEO. Our Edmonton facility is experiencing steady growth and is extremely well-positioned to accommodate the sample volume AES will add to its production.

POLARIS Laboratories provides complete testing and analysis for oils, fuels, coolants and water-based industrial fluids. Its customer base is diverse with a heavy emphasis on the oil and gas, transportation, construction and mining industries.
