Sump Screen Testing
Leading Condition Monitoring experts, Techenomics have developed a new, simple, cheap and readily available Sump Screening Test (SST) to easily test for fuel dilution, coolant leaks and Iron and Copper in Road Transport vehicle engines, detecting any problems before engine failure occurs.
The main problems engines are susceptible to that affect engine life are fuel and water leaks. If these problems aren’t identified early and fixed straight away, then complete engine failure will occur and companies then have to operate without a full fleet, increasing unscheduled downtime and losing valuable work and money while engines are fixed or totally replaced.
Techenomics Sump Screening Test can identify all of these problems and before engine failure occurs, extending the life of equipment, preventing maintenance costs, lowering unscheduled downtime and saving companies a lot of money.
Sump Screening Tests also identify which truck or bus in a fleet is the next one that needs to be overhauled.
OEM’s recommend a time or mileage that equipment should be overhauled – this is based on when some machines or engines start to fail.
But every piece of equipment is different and has a different ‘life’ span.
SST determines when a piece of equipment is due for overhaul, therefore getting longer running time out of a lot of equipment.
Carrying out Sump Screening Tests on vehicles, benefits a range of Road Transport operators including fleet operators, transport operators, bus operators, light fleet operators, taxi companies and large car servicing franchises.
Techenomics also has the ability to carry out more advanced and detailed testing after a Sump Screening Test returns a ‘fail’ result. An engine, such as a truck or bus, operating in a dusty environment or on dirt roads can very quickly get “blown” if a hole develops in the air intake allowing unfiltered air into the engine.
Techenomics has the ability to first carry out the Sump Screening Test and then further, more in-depth testing to help identify the root cause and ensure any potential future damage is contained.
