Kendall Motor Oil is now offering an upgraded Internet-based oil analysis program called Kendall Lubrication Analysis System (KLAS).
In addition to taking the “guesswork” out of detecting component wear, the analysis system also compiles extended drain intervals, according to program director Ray Sparling.
The program's free online component — KLAS.net — enables technicians working at remote sites within a fleet's maintenance network to view oil analysis data in real time, he adds.
Kendall's Internet-based reporting system operates from a secure central database system that archives each analysis report to help create a track record so fleet managers can better spot at-risk equipment. Historical data from various sites can be consolidated into one database so fleets can compare and performance within their entire equipment pool.
The KLAS system is available in two formats. A basic package monitors engine, transmission, differential, and hydraulic oils and is free of charge to Kendall fleet customers. Premium service, available for a fee, offers enhanced testing to support extended engine oil drain recommendations.
