Industrial Plant platform aerial

This service brings oil analysis directly to the mining operation — providing opportunities for improvements in safety, productivity and service life.

Description

On-site lubricant analysis lab is a selective service for mining customers requiring world-class, on-site oil analysis for expedited reporting. We work to customize analysis limits and coordinate delivering analysis results to proper mine personnel. We then use analysis to better train personnel on proper sampling techniques, and better train on-site maintenance personnel. We use our expertise to provide technical recommendations that keep mining operations safe and productive.

Application

We work with you to:

  • Install lab equipment on-site and operate analysis facility with qualified/trained technicians
  • Establish proper equipment sampling techniques and frequencies
  • Determine proper test slates and limits for equipment application
  • Report trend analysis data for equipment and oil condition
  • Facilitate interpretation of results with mine personnel
  • Recommend data driven corrective action

Deliverable: The used oil analysis report documents and summarizes the oil analysis results. It contains recommendations for increasing safety, productivity and savings within the mining operation.

Common opportunity areas

  • Need for immediate oil analysis information
  • Excessive machinery downtime
  • Frequent, costly equipment maintenance
  • Short equipment life
