S∙O∙SSM Laboratory

Take a look inside your machine with S∙O∙SSM oil analysis!

The S•O•SSM Fluids Analysis Laboratory started operating on the premises of Borusan Cat Kazakhstan in Karaganda in 2008. It provides valuable insights and recommendations about the condition of equipment by analyzing fluid samples.

These findings reveal excessive wear, deterioration and contamination of fluids, and provided recommendations help to take timely actions to prevent failures, avoid costly repairs and reduce downtime.

Regular monitoring of oil condition helps maximize the capacity and availability of your machines and improves your bottom line.
