Ridgeline launches fluids analysis program

July 14, 2022
Ridgeline customers can send used oil and fluids to its lab to provide analysis on vehicle performance. Using Ridgeline's app and website, service professionals will be able to use the data for predictive maintenance.

Ridgeline, the lubricant brand from Parkland Corp., is launching a fluids analysis program for maintenance professionals needing to detect engine problems before they occur.

The Ridgeline Fluids Analysis program provides a comprehensive analysis of equipment’s used oil fluids every time you change them, providing insight into the engine’s performance over time. In addition to oil analysis, Ridgeline also offers coolant, fuel, and diesel exhaust fluid analysis from its app and website.

Customers of the fluids analysis program will ship 4 to 6 ounces of the used oil or fluid to the Ridgeline laboratory in a QR code-labeled test tube for the analysis of over 25 analytes to detect wear and contamination, and to determine fluid condition. The test tube can be tracked and labeled in the app, where results will be shared. The program delivers a 24-to-48-hour turnaround time.

“Ridgeline prides itself on offering lubricants and fluids that produce exceptional quality, reliability and high performance for your equipment,” said Tom McClary, director of lubricants and specialty products at Parkland. “The Ridgeline Fluids Analysis program adds another pillar of reliability to the Ridgeline brand by giving customers a window into their engine and helping keep small maintenance problems small.”

The fluids analysis program has two packages available —Base and Summit. Pricing is based on equipment needs and varies by geography.
