Do you know how much the US spends annually on unsuitable lubrication?
240 BILLION DOLLARS
We are a Company with 35 years experience working in specialized and individualized solutions, based on reliability principles, holistic approach to lubrication solutions and Condition Based Maintenance techniques under the
requirements of corporation leaders and maintenance personnel of important industrial corporations.
"What is measured, improves"
More than 30 years of experience providing solutions in the lubrication areas, Condition Based Maintenance and Reliability to important corporations from Latin America and the United States.
Many companies have adapted their engineering departments to focus on reliability instead of maintenance. This involves predicting a failure before it happens and take corrective action to repair/replacement before failure, instead of waiting for a failure to happen and see how to resolve it. This approach involves the restructuring of the resources of the departments of engineering to include different roles, using systems of computerized maintenance management, improving the planning and the acquisition and use of tools and modern techniques of maintenance.
The pulp and paper industry is complex and involves a wide range of machines and mechanical processes running virtually around the clock.
Be able to plan operations is essential for the profitability of the operation of the plant.
The primary assets to monitor in any installation are usually pumps and rotating equipment. This includes saws, rolls of the paper machine, roll drives, fans, pumps, circulating filters. Almost every piece of equipment in this category is critical and requires careful monitoring or production could be interrupted and benefits lost.
Many companies operate with multiple shifts and with production shifts 24/7. A single component that fails can stop the production, leading to downtime, which in a paper mill of large scale can exceed 250 million dollars per day.
Ensure that the systems remain online and running to the maximum the state is vital for the profitability.
In a complex operation as the generation of electrical energy, almost all components are critical. The loss of a unit can affect many other drives down the line. The most critical assets that should be closely monitored are turbines, generators, boiler and feed water pumps and fans.
These most critical assets, usually have no alternate units with the associated security, and the loss of a machine would significantly reduce the rate of production of the plant, or become disconnected completely. If this happens the replacement cost of assets is very high, and takes a long time to get back in line. Processes for reliability and predictive maintenance, detective, reconditioning and periodic replacement must be strategically twinned.
Each platform produces from multiple wells located as far away as 15 miles from the surface of the platform itself. Flows of oil and gas go to the platform where they are processed and separated.
The various processes that take place in the platform are helpful in the treatment and in the processes of separation. The oil and gas are transported through a pipeline to the main facilities. These lines of supply sometimes on other platforms that act as transfer stations to boost pressures.
All these components require to be maintained according to the world´s standards of safety, reliability and productivity.
