The energy team will hold their annual winter meetings the week of January 18. The discussion this year will focus on the new Total Analysis Program, a program designed for home-based fleets, school bus companies and other local trucking operations, which detects impurities in the engine’s oil that can signal equipment wear and anticipates needs before emergency repairs are necessary.
Through the fluid analysis program, fleet managers can better regulate oil consumption and engine maintenance. The program is designed as preventative maintenance and as a means to run diagnostics as issues with oil may occur. Based on the test results, managers may opt to extend the life of the oil beyond routine oil change intervals. Impurities detected in the oil can signal operational failure before the engine shuts down completely.
This program can help to meet the new regulatory information on oil used in diesel engines that will be launching in 2017. To learn more about the innovative program, attend a winter energy meeting in your area. Meeting dates and times listed below.
