Reliability Contractor and Consultant Improves Plant Communication

CLEVELAND, Dec. 10, 2020  -- TestOil, the industry leader in lubricant condition monitoring, is announcing an onsite reliability solution, TestOil PRO, that drastically reduces disconnects between in-house reliability, maintenance and operations personnel.
Program management challenges arise from a number of issues, including miscommunication, lack of time, loss of personnel and insufficient knowledge. TestOil Field Analyst Dwon Ruffin said, “There are a lot of factors that affect oil analysis results. A well-run company should have a plan on how to respond to test results that are outside the specified limits. Most companies don’t and this is one of the many areas where TestOil PRO can help. “

TestOil Field Analyst Dave Gawelek agreed, “Reliability is usually in charge of oil analysis, but there need to be people on the floor to do it the right way. In many cases, samples aren’t taken in a consistent fashion and no one really specifies how samples should be taken—there are no documented SOPs (standard operating procedures) for how to sample. They may not know there are best practices for taking oil samples, and that inconsistent sampling locations and techniques dramatically affect the usefulness of the test results. That’s where TestOil PRO comes in. It’s a system that will generate useful information and recommend how to prioritize and act on it. “
