Volvo CE expands global Fluid Analysis offer

Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) has unveiled its new Fluid Analysis programme. The new service expands on the existing Oil Analysis programme and encompasses lubricants, diesel fuels, AdBlue and coolants.

AI accelerates the testing process, making analysis quicker and easier. This allows lab technicians to focus on more sensitive testing issues – such as analysing abnormal or critical samples, those of greatest concern to clients – and thereby offer more useful insights and recommendations.

Alongside expansion of the programme, Volvo is also partnering with an industry leading testing provider, to ensure consistency and efficiency on a global level. Besides leading to a significant increase in testing capacity, this partnership will also reduce lead time and simplify the sampling and analysis process.

With 75% of repair costs and equipment downtime traceable to the use of contaminated lubricants and fuels, and up to 65-75% of all bearing failures due to lubrication issues, the importance of effective fluid analysis cannot be overstated. Through early identification of possible contamination or wear, customers can take proactive action before any unplanned downtime occurs, helping them to maintain productivity and avoid any potential repair costs.

A streamlined process

With its latest offer, Volvo has taken the potential of fluid analysis to the next level, providing customers with efficient and easy-to-understand reporting. The digitised process is quick, straightforward and provides reports with the highest levels of accuracy.

Once a sample is taken from the machine, it is sent to Volvo’s newly expanded global laboratory network. Here it is analysed with diagnosis performed as required based on any trace elements found.

Once testing is complete, reports – along with recommended actions – are made immediately available via the easy-to-use Volvo Fluid Analysis customer portal. This cloud-based platform features a user-friendly interface that presents reports in a highly visual and easy-to-analyse format. It is also the first fluid analysis solution on the market that utilises AI data analysis, providing an intuitive solution that delivers consistent and easy to understand recommendations.

The process is made easier still with the Fluid Analysis mobile app. This enables users to register their samples from anywhere in the world, quickly and easily access sample reports, and receive notifications should anything require urgent attention.
A multitude of benefits

Knowledge is power and routine fluid analysis is proven to reduce downtime by 15%. Through a more efficient testing process, increased testing capacity and intuitive reporting, Fluid Analysis from Volvo has made it significantly easier for customers to gain the insight needed to take corrective actions which can help avoid expensive repairs and unexpected downtime.

Customers will get an indication at the earliest opportunity alerting them to possible contamination and wear issues, along with the data needed to make more informed decisions when selecting lubricants, coolants, and diesel fuels in the future.

The result is improved uptime thanks to the opportunity for predictive repair and maintenance actions, contributing to a lower TCO.
