Polaris Laboratories and Sinclair Oil Lubricants announced the launch of the Sinclair Fluid Analysis Program, in which Polaris will provide complete testing and analysis for oils, diesel fuel, coolants and water-based fluids for the new Sinclair Oil program so that users may identify minor equipment problems before they become major failures. By identifying dirt, wear particles and other contaminants that can cause failure or prematurely shorten equipment life, users can increase equipment reliability and minimize downtime, the companies say.
“Sinclair Oil is proud to offer a broad spectrum of quality products to its customers,” says Greg Iverson, Sinclair Oil Lubricant marketing manager. “A high-quality fluid analysis program is one additional way we can offer our lubricant customers solutions that will benefit their businesses. Polaris provides the technical strength Sinclair customers need to maximize equipment life and effectively manage efficiency.”
The companies says the program also allows Sinclair Oil customers to access test results and laboratory maintenance recommendations quickly using Horizon, Polaris’ free online reporting application; customers can view data analysis reports almost immediately after the lab processes a sample and interprets the results. The Sinclair Fluid Analysis program will be made available through its broad network of distributors located throughout the organization’s 22-state marketing area.
“Polaris Laboratories is looking forward to providing Sinclair Oil with a value-added service that complements its well-established commitment to Sinclair customers,” says Brett Minges, Polaris vice president of sales. “This new partnership will give Sinclair Oil customers a solutions-based approach to maintenance backed by a high-quality testing laboratory.”
