On-site Coolant Analysis in Minutes
On-Site Analysis, Inc., a specialist in automated fluids analysis equipment, has introduced the OSA4 CoolCheck coolant analyzer. The touch-screen instrument automatically performs up to nine coolant and DEF diagnostic analyses, on demand in the customer’s service facility and all in less than one minute, according to the company, which states the OSA4 CoolCheck represents leading-edge, proprietary technology utilizing sophisticated components that instantly capture data and compares it to known norms, iden-tifying abnormal or severe coolant system conditions. Test data can be printed or wirelessly transmitted to LubeTrak, On-Site Analysis’ password protected, data-mining and storage tool. The OSA4 CoolCheck measures 5 x 8 x 10 in. (127 x 203 x 254 mm) and is claimed to provide lab quality diagnostic results, at less than 20% of the cost of a comparable lab analysis and without the wait. The report identifies the type of coolant, boil point, freeze point, clari-ty, contamination level, nitrite level, percent glycol/water mixture, color, and the percent urea for DEF. The analyzer requires no instal-lation, training, clean up, licensing fees or maintenance.
