“We want to look at the right process, operating and reliability information available before any equipment damage and subsequent performance degradation occurs. Oil analysis results are a good source of information as particles will be present in the oil which tells us of a problem well before performance degradation begins.

Overall, we are really curious to see what your report can tell us about our equipment. But there will be one challenge for you. Plant guys always say “Now what”? They have all this information, sophisticated analysis, lots of math, but they really want to know what they need to change to extend the life of their equipment.”

– Head of the Reliability Technology Department of a North-American Chemical Corporation
