Five Minute Facts
Thermographic inspections offer many advantages as it helps to ensure a safe working environment and an increase in uptime. It also provides companies with accurate insights into the risks that undermine the continuity of their production lines (and the possibility to actively reduce these risks).

Filtering new and used oil prolongs oil life and protects equipment from wear.
Studies have shown that as much as 70% of all premature machine failures can be attributed to contamination. To prevent these failures, it is important to purify the new oil as it comes into the facility and then keep it clean throughout its life. By establishing an ISO code cleanliness goal and maintaining it, you will extend the life of the oil and the equipment.

Did you know that changing sampling methods to best practice valve sampling can have a significant impact on corporate profitability? That's because the success of an oil analysis program begins with the oil sample sent into the lab. Incorporating condition monitoring alongside valve sampling has shown to contribute to more compliance, better oil analysis results, and increased program savings. Discover the ways you could benefit from best practice oil sampling.

The need for reliably detecting reciprocating compressor cylinder leaks is important because this gives an indication of excessive wear or damage of a consumable component, such as the valves (which account for the majority of maintenance), piston rings and packing.
