Coolant Analysis

Over 40% of engine failure is due to a problem in the cooling system. Routine coolant analysis and maintenance can achieve maximum system efficiency and identify potential problems before they become catastrophic failures. Trico coolant analysis will alert you to coolant breakdowns, which can contribute to failures. Our coolant analysis can detect:

Coolant Reservoir
  • Metal Corrosion
  • Combustion Gas Leaks
  • Contamination
  • Electrical Ground Problems
  • Localized Overheating
  • Chemical Breakdown

Trico’s Laboratory Offers a Full Suite of Coolant Tests

Corrosion Levels

Corrosion is monitored in the cooling system

Percent Glycol

Glycol is the main ingredient of most coolants, too much or too little will reduce the protection of the cooling system

Freeze Point

The temperature at which crystallization begins


The measure of the hydrogen ion concentration which indicates whether the coolant is acidic, alkaline or neutral

Physical Properties

Inspection of the coolant in regards to odor, foam, precipitate, and oil and fuel presence

Boiling Point

Monitor the boiling point of a coolant, ensuring the liquid state is maintained for consistent cooling

Total Dissolved Solids

Measurement of dissolved solids within the coolant to interpret conductance

Supplemental Coolant Analysis

Evaluate and maintain the necessary additives for corrosion protection
