COOLANT TEST STRIPS AND REFRACTOMETERS

Proactive coolant testing can help you save money in equipment down time and parts replacement

Regularly testing and monitoring coolant can tell us much about the condition of the cooling system and if anything is wrong that might to lead significant problems.
Every good cooling system maintenance program should include regular coolant testing to determine if the proper level of protection is present or if contaminants exist. A good coolant testing program eliminates guesswork and allows the cooling system to maintain peak performance.
To assist with on-site testing, Cummins Filtration has a range of coolant test strips and refractometers that can be used on-site as a quick guide to assess the immediate health of your Fleetguard coolant and cooling system condition.
Coolant Condemnation Test Kits
• PG Platinum (Propylene Glycol based OAT coolant – premix ~50 percent. Nitrite, Amine, Phosphate, Silicate free). Four-way coolant 50 strip test kit.
– Easy to use test strips measure freeze point, molybdate, and nitrite (as a contaminant) and pH
– Results in 45-75 seconds
– Designed specifically for use with PG Platinum
• PG Plus (Propylene Glycol based hybrid coolant – premix ~50 percent). Nitrite/Molybdate for cavitation protection, three-way heavy-duty coolant 50 strip bottle test kit
– Measures protection against liner pitting, corrosion and coolant dilution
– Easy to use test strips measure freeze point (glycol percentage) and molybdate/nitrite
– Results in 45-75 seconds
– Easy to read table that indicates how much DCA4 or DCA4+ to add when these additives are low
• Quick-Chek Three-Way Test Strip (contamination check) 10 Strip Bottle
– Easy to use test strips measure levels of pH, sulphate and chloride for overall coolant quality
– Minimises unnecessary draining of coolant still within specification
– Results in 30-70 seconds
– Test twice a year
– For use with PGPlus or other coolants not coloured red or orange
Coolant Refractometers
• PGPlus Refractometer and PG Platinum Refractometer available
– Determines glycol percentage (freeze point protection) for coolants
– More accurate than test strips or float-type hydrometers
– Durable storage case included
