Komatsu KOWA oil sample kits are processed within 24 hours from when the sample arrives at the Komatsu CMS laboratory. Results of other sample tests, including coolants, fuels and greases may take a little longer to process due to the nature of the tests on those samples.
With Komatsu equipment, we recommend each oil-lubricated component (engine, hydraulics, transmission) be sampled at 250-hour intervals as part of your regular equipment checks to monitor equipment health. For non-Komatsu equipment, please follow the recommendations of the manufacturer.
No, the purchase price of your sample kit covers every aspect of our service: postage to our laboratory, lab testing, report generation and notification are all covered. If we identify an issue that requires urgent action by you, we will also follow up by phone, SMS and/or email.
