FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ON COOLING WATER ANALYSIS level 1

 

 

What exactly is checked during a cooling water analysis level-1?

The level-1 analysis can be subdivided into four categories:


Coolant type: Colour, metal analysis

Protection against overheating and freezing: Glycol percentage

Coolant condition: pH, conductivity, nitrite, physical inspection

Contamination of the coolant: oil contamination, fuel contamination, foam

 

What’s the difference between cooling water analysis 1 and analysis 2?

The level-1 analysis provides information about the levels of erosion and corrosion and potential system problems such as overheating, stray current, the penetration of air and exhaust fumes. Corrosion and erosion levels are checked by means of an element analysis. The monitored elements include:
 

aluminium (AI)
copper (Cu)
iron (Fe)
lead (Pb)
tin (Sn)
zinc (Zn)
 

This analysis can detect particles up to 10 microns in size. The results of the element analysis are reported in particles per million, ppm. The presence of contaminations can result in higher corrosion and erosion levels.
 

The level-2 analysis provides additional information about the additives that are commonly found in extended life and conventional coolants. General conventional coolant additives that are detected are:
 

nitrates
phosphates
borates
silicates
 

Knowledge of the levels of these additives helps to determine if an extended life or conventional coolant is used. It is then possible to make appropriate recommendations about additives of the extender and SCA.
 

Furthermore, this analysis can ensure a better understanding of the maintenance intervals and the general condition of the coolant. With a level-2 coolant analysis, you can also recognise poor mixtures of conventional and extended life products, as well as the use of recycled coolant.

What are the costs of a cooling water analysis level-1?

  • The costs of a level-1 analysis are € 55.00 (excluding VAT) per sample.

How long does a cooling water analysis level-1 take?

The analysis usually takes a week to complete.

What is done with the results of the analysis?

We incorporate the analysis results into a report which we share with you by e-mail. This report contains our advice so that you know what the best measures are you can take. The advice is elucidated by using colour codes in the report. Green: No action required, Yellow, Monitor compartment, Red: Action required.

What if the analysis level-1 shows the cooling water is okay?

If the analysis shows that no deviations were found in the cooling water, we will send you a green report, explaining that the cooling water tests showed a normal result

The next step is taking a sample in accordance with the normal sampling interval.

What if the analysis shows the cooling water analysis level-1 is not okay?

If the level-1 analysis shows that the cooling water is not okay, we may recommend a level-2 analysis to gain a better insight. This enables us to give you better advice in order to prevent a breakdown.

How am I notified of the result?

You are notified of the analysis results by means of a report which we will send to you by e-mail.

Why should the cooling water analysis be carried out by Pon Power?

We have, by far, more knowledge of your Cat engines than anyone else. Also, the staff at our analysis laboratory have confidential information from Caterpillar, which we use to give you the best possible advice.
