We test lubricants, fuels-(petroleum and bio based) synthetic machine fluids and coolants, to provide our clients with information to support maintenance and reliability decisions. Our approach to testing is innovative, modern, and comprehensive, quality a given.
We test fluids for clients ranging from personal vehicles to large industrial equipment- We have considerable experience in monitoring turbines, compressors, hydraulic systems, gear systems and engines. We spend a lot of time getting to know a piece of equipment at the start of a monitoring program. This information is considered vital for determining the practical alarms and recommendations based upon the equipment characteristics. The BTS labs offer a variety of programs to suit customer needs.
Our well-equipped laboratory is located in Sparks, NV (Go to the Contact/Visit Us Page for driving directions). By taking advantage of technology, BTS is able to test quickly, accurately and report results via a variety of media, especially electronic formats.
