Technical Consultations


Our commitment to you is a part of who we are as a
company. Since 1924, customer focus has been one of our guiding principles.

We tailor consultations to your unique business needs and can also facilitate tours and training sessions right at our manufacturing facility.

Our technical experts can conduct on-site surveys at your location to identify your product and application needs. They’ll look at product selection, application, equipment and provide recommendations, training, and much more: 

  • Used Oil Analysis Training
  • Lubricant On-Site surveys
  • Marine, industrial, manufacturing, mining, fleet product usage surveys   
  • Chemical training
  • Product specific presentations
  • Industry specific products & training

Used Oil Analysis


Our experts know that your lubricants tell a story about your mechanical equipment. They can analyze your used engine oil, as well as gear and hydraulic fluids, to provide a detailed report on physical properties and wear. As a result, you’ll have all the information you need to keep your vehicles on the road and out of the repair shop.

What can used oil reveal about your engine or equipment? 

  • Reduces unnecessary oil changes and labour costs
  • Helps you extend your drain intervals
  • Anticipates issues before they become breakdowns
  • Saves money and time on maintenance

Diesel Exhaust Fluid Testing


We provide a full range of diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) testing and analysis for all grades of DEF including off-road, marine and rail, with the ability to ensure your manufactured product meets industry standards. Our DEF testing experts and world-class lab facilities give you the assurance you need about the quality and purity of your diesel exhaust fluid.
