IFM Oil Monitoring Service
FTMTA member Industrial and Farm Machinery Ltd. (IFM) are offering conditioning oil monitoring for all their customers. IFM recognise that taking care of machines can inevitably reduce downtime and help running of the machine in the most economical manner.
In conjunction with Tel Laboratories in Carlow, IFM will provide invaluable technical analysis on the condition of your oil. This can identify potential problems before they cause serious damage to your machinery. It can spot issues such as dirty fuel and coolant contamination before they lead to breakdowns.
Advantages of using the oil conditioning system:
- Checks oil conditions
- Extends oil change intervals
- Gives extended warranties
- Identifies defective operating conditions
- Increases machine availability
- Helps schedule maintenance
By taking a few minutes to obtain a small sample of your oil in a clear 60 ml sample bottle you can get your sample analysed using the most advanced technology available. The results will be analysed by experienced diagnosticians and results can be sent to you. For further details please contact Industrial and Farm Machinery Ltd. Mullin’s Cross, Dunleer, Co.
