The 2020 calendar year has certainly brought with it many challenges for a variety of industries. The medical field, pulp and paper industry and food supply chain have all been significantly impacted by the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic. At the grocery store, people experienced (or are still experiencing) empty shelves, limited food supply and less variety when doing weekly shopping. In March 2020, grocery and supply sales increased 29% from the previous year (3).

Balancing cost reduction and efficiency improvement targets is a common source of frustration for maintenance and engineering managers. For facilities that operate continuously with no window for unplanned shutdowns, poor reliability and availability of machinery is far more serious, but even in factories with regular opportunities for maintenance, recovery can still be expensive and time consuming.

This session will show you how to find commonly misdiagnosed or overlooked issues. A case-study example of a medium-sized gearbox with a seemingly obvious lubricant failure will be presented to illustrate how data can identify a lubricant selection problem. Attendees will learn how to apply this knowledge to future oil analysis reports so they can correctly diagnose the true root cause of an alarmed condition.
