Oil Filtration is one of the most commonly followed maintenance-related activities in industry today. Operating personnel are generally aware about the brand and technical specifications of filters such as filter element type, flow rate, and filter nominal ratings. While these parameters are important, one parameter which is not discussed very often is the Beta Ratio […]
in advance so that they can make smarter; economically and environmentally optimal maintenance decisions…
Last year, one of our rig operator customers was in a dilemma over how to decide the appropriate time to change the oil in the engine. The problem was twofold — they needed to cut down on the operational expenses (lube oil was a big-ticket) without risking the reliability of engine operation. We went deeper […]
A study by tribology experts indicated a fivefold increase in the operating life for an engine by decreasing the water content in oil. This signifies the extent of damage that water can cause by contaminating the lube oil. What lies undetected in plain sight can exert some of the most sinister effects on the engine’s […]
It is mystifying that even seasoned industry professionals fall for this presumption: that new oil received in sealed, steel barrels is clean and ready to use. The reality is that even new oil needs thorough cleaning before you put it to use in your engine or any other machinery. And how does unfiltered, new oil […]
As Engineers, we all know the importance of vibrations: It is the heartbeat of any equipment/machine. We fret when vibrations go awry and immediately seek corrective action! Asset owners today spend a large amount of their bandwidth (and budgets) sourcing the best, most hi-tech vibration sensors to monitor their equipment health! We display our vast […]
During the two decades that we have been serving the Marine Industry, we have observed that Engineers, in general, do not pay enough attention to oil cleanliness. Oil samples, for Lab analysis, are drawn without much care and attention to detail, samples stay on board for days or weeks before they are landed ashore and […]
