Failure Analysis

Too often, expensive equipment failures occur repeatedly. This happens where the root cause of the problem is never clearly established in the first place. In some instances, these problems occur for years and become a “normal” part of plant operations. When critical components are damaged or destroyed, it is essential to find and correct the underlying causes of failure.

PetroLiance technical services personnel investigate and identify the root cause of persistent equipment failures. We utilize equipment inspections, used oil testing, observation of ambient conditions, and the latest lubricant technologies to assist in correcting these expensive occurrences. In most cases, we coordinate our efforts with OEMs to ensure an effective joint resolution of these critical issues. Expensive mistakes need not be repeated. The proper identification and correction of underlying deficiencies ensures more reliable production and the efficient use of plant equipment.
