According to AIOD Executive Director Doug Roberts, the Purus Assurance System allows the Purus distributors’ customers to identify minor equipment problems before they become major failures. “By identifying dirt, wear particles and other contaminants that can cause failure or prematurely shorten equipment life, users can increase equipment reliability and minimize downtime.”
Bryan Debshaw, POLARIS Laboratories CEO, said Purus Assurance supports customer support goals both companies share. “We both work to provide our customers with something more than the products we sell,” Debshaw said. “Value-added services, like fluid analysis, demonstrate our commitment and concern for their success. And the key to successful fluid analysis is utilizing the data to reduce downtime, improve reliability and increase profitability.”
