Kaman Industrial Technologies Fluid Analysis Program

Ultimately, our goal at Kaman Industrial Technologies is the same as yours — to keep your plant running smoothly and efficiently so that you become as productive, competitive and profitable as possible. We offer a "fully integrated" solutions approach rather than a simple, one-dimensional response to any given fluid power problem.

As much as 70% of hydraulic system failures can be attributed to contaminated fluids, which often results in unanticipated downtime. Kaman Industrial Technologies' Oil Analysis can detect equipment failures in progress and point you straight to the root cause of problems, enabling you to prevent catastrophic shutdowns and costly losses in production. It is a preventive maintenance tool that provides a picture of both the condition of the oil and the internal condition of a component or system without disassembly. Being able to see exactly what's happening inside a gearbox, transmission or hydraulic system enables you to:

  • Extend oil drain intervals — Monitoring the condition of the oil optimizes drain intervals so that you get the most out of the fluid you're paying for. Fewer oil changes minimizes maintenance costs and maximizes uptime.
  • Extend equipment life — Monitoring system cleanliness and filtration efficiency allows you to keep your equipment longer and significantly reduce replacement costs.
  • Identify minor problems before they become major failures — State-of-the-art fluid analysis identifies dirt, wear particles and other contaminants that can cause catastrophic failure or significantly shorten equipment life.
  • Maximize asset reliability — Testing and analysis ensures that units are up, running and making money.

High-Quality Testing

The Kaman Industrial Technologies Fluid Analysis Program utilizes an ISO 17025 A2LA accredited testing laboratory. This is the highest level of quality attainable by a testing laboratory backed by the most stringent accrediting body in the industry. You can be confident that the results you receive are accurate, repeatable and traceable to a standard and that your fluid analysis program is supported by a documented quality system you can depend on to deliver superior testing and customer services.

Innovative Reporting Solutions

Kaman Industrial Technologies' online reporting software, HORIZON™, will show you how to get the most from your information. Results are accessible through HORIZON™ online almost immediately after sample processing is complete with management reports that will allow you to affect positive change in your daily maintenance practices.

Kaman Industrial Technologies' Oil Analysis will show you how regular sampling and TREND ANALYSIS — monitoring test data over an extended period of time — will provide the information you need to continually maximize asset reliability and ultimately, increase company profits.
