Scheduled Oil Sampling (S.O.S SM)

We meet customers’ needs for spare parts with a full range of Cat® parts. We also provide original Cat lubricants, which reduce maintenance costs and ensure that components last longer.

The fastest, most accurate and reliable way to see what’s going on inside your Cat engines and equipment is to use Scheduled Oil Sampling (S.O.S SM) from Mantrac Kenya.

We offer S.O.S SM for all fluid compartments such as Engines, Transmissions, Hydraulic systems and Final Drives.

S.O.S SM developed by Caterpillar specifically for Cat engines and machines, represents an indispensable part of preventive maintenance strategies.

Our S.O.S SM facilities provide top-of-the-line analysis:

  • Oil analysis.
  • Coolant analysis.
  • Contamination control.

Analysis includes wear elements, oil viscosity, Total Base Number (TBN) counts, and fuel or water contamination. You will get results you can trust, see sophisticated trend analysis, and enjoy the reassurance of complete knowledge of your engine’s condition.

S.O.S SM is the simplest and most cost-effective way to avoid excessive repair bills and machine downtime. By analyzing samples at regular intervals, our experts can detect abnormal wear trends before serious problems develop, pre-empting oil-related failures, and prolonging the life of your Cat products.

S.O.S SM can provide:

  • Wear Metal analysis.
  • Particle counts.
  • Total Base Number (TBN) measurement
