Using On-site Oil Analysis to Drive Down Maintenance Costs

Date: Tuesday, October 27, 2020

Time: 2 - 3 PM ET

Where: Zoom

In a recent plant reliability survey, between 60 to 70% of industrial facilities consider oil analysis an important part of their reliability programs. Oil analysis gives a snapshot of machinery health, preventing unnecessary oil changes and assisting in predicting equipment failures. “Using On-site Oil Analysis to Drive Down Maintenance Costs” will take a detailed look into using data to decrease maintenance costs and increase our bottom line. Being able to extend oil drains or even shorten them to eliminate failures, can be an easy way to reduce maintenance costs, but we must have data that allows us to make those decisions. 

In this webinar, we’ll gain a better understanding of the role of key performance indicators in predictive maintenance, how to gather useful data that aligns with our KPI’s and review a few case studies where on-site labs were able to use data to take advantage of warranty periods, justify keeping assets after warranty and extend oil drains to reduce oil consumption.

In this webinar you will learn:
  • The role of key performance indicators (KPI’s) in predictive maintenance
  • What oil analysis parameters can be used to lower maintenance costs
  • The importance of data trending to make decisions
  • How to manage the data using TruVu 360 Fluid Intelligence Software
  • How to create management reports that justify your predictive maintenance initiatives
