Obtain the Sample and the Analysis
In addition to a good preventive maintenance program, Caterpillar recommends using S O S oil analysis at regular scheduled intervals in order to monitor the condition and the maintenance requirements of the final drives.Each oil sample should be taken when the oil is warm and when the oil is mixed in order to ensure that the sample is representative of the oil in the final drives.Obtain the S O S Sample
To avoid contamination of the oil samples, the tools and the supplies that are used for obtaining oil samples must be clean.
