Condition Monitoring Solutions for Petroleum Refiners

Your industry has challenges that we can help you overcome

Market conditions are indeed challenging for refineries in the 21st century. Fluctuating crude prices, demand ebbs and flows and changing energy costs cut into profit margins. And compliance with tighter environmental and safety regulations can be both difficult and expensive. At the same time, the opportunity to increase profit by refining poorer grade crudes requires machines to run at higher temperatures, putting greater stress on machines. With so much at stake, your mechanical assets need to run at or even beyond original design condition or capacity, reliably and predictably. Our asset management solutions can help you overcome many of your most critical challenges such as:

  • Reducing maintenance and production costs
  • Complying with environmental and safety regulations
  • Preventing environmental releases
  • Minimizing unplanned outages and downtime
  • Extending the time between and reducing the duration of planned outages 
  • Life Cycle Asset Management - optimizing maintenance and operating costs to maximize the useful life of your production an assets
  • Protecting critical machinery against catastrophic mechanical failures
  • Overcoming the loss of your experienced workforce and often working with a smaller staff
  • Reducing unnecessary maintenance and optimizing planned maintenance based on condition monitoring
