Webinar Description: 

As we emerge from the global pandemic, power generation facilities face incredible challenges to maintain reliable power for their customers.

Double digit increases in short supply specialty lubricants, rising costs, long lead times on parts and labor shortages mean downtime is more costly and unpredictable than ever. Facilities without CBM programs, and specifically on-site oil analysis capabilities, limit their options to detect and avoid operation downtime.

Spectro Scientific’s on-site oil analysis solutions have been enabling power generation facilities to detect problems early enough to minimize or avoid plant stoppages. We have been amazed at how teams change their lubrication task workflow to integrate immediate oil analysis data and diagnostics. Join us for this webinar when Daniel Walsh will review current power generation lubrication challenges and relate how on-site solutions from current users have solved problems. You also can learn how this new knowledge can be incorporated into ROI analysis when evaluating if point of care oil analysis is right for your facility.

Learning Takeaways:
1- Investment in on-site oil analysis tools has proven ROI, even more so with current costs,
2- Immediate oil analysis diagnostics and recommendations provide timely data to direct lubrication-based reliability tasks, increasing both cost savings and team productivity.
3- On-site software solutions enable capture of equipment data, leading to high value diagnostics and prognostics
