Webinar Description

Gearbox maintenance is often based on a fixed schedule or run to failure. Under these two factors maintenance can be costly & wasteful and often occurs too early or too late. The solution to these efforts is condition-based monitoring — a maintenance approach based on monitoring and reacting to the condition of the equipment, with the goal of remedying possible failures well before they lead to equipment shutdowns. Oil analysis among other technologies provides one of the earliest indicators of pending equipment failure. Approach maintenance smarter, discover solutions that can save you time and money based on reacting to the condition of the fluid in your gearbox. Learn how to implement a condition-based oil sampling program on your gearboxes. Gain a better understanding of your gearbox health, and learn about the benefits you could see by switching your maintenance approach.

Learning Takeaways

• The advantages of condition-based monitoring
• That oil samples are the leading indicator of equipment status
• How you can integrate sampling & condition-based monitoring tools together
• The importance of system cleanliness
• That OEMs often provide sampling valves installation options on new equipment
