Your machine components can be prevented from acid corrosion by monitoring the acid and base numbers within lubricants. Acid Number measures the increase in acid content and Base Number measures the remaining alkalinity in the oil sample. The analysis results help to prevent both the premature replacement of the lubricant and overextending oil drain intervals.

Komatsu Oil and Wear Analysis (KOWA®) is the spearhead of our Condition Monitoring Services (CMS). Your equipment is the lifeblood of your business and KOWA® works like a blood test for your machine. There are normal wear rates for each moving component and as these parts wear particles appear in the oil. These particles are small but easily detected through regular KOWA® use. Continued and consistent KOWA® use will provide a clear picture of your machine’s health, potentially saving you time and money.
