First of its kind lube oil software unveiled in MEby Slavka Atanasova on Aug 23, 2016
Bureau Veritas, global firm specialised in testing, inspection and certification services, has launched first of its kind lube oil analysis software in the Middle East.
The innovative system has been deployed at the firm's dedicated Dubai Oil Condition Monitoring (OCM) laboratory, where it provides access to one application that brings equipment testing and analysis data together from locations around the world.
It was specifically designed to identify trends in wear and contamination and monitors changes in the physical properties of lubricants and hydraulic oils.
After analysing complex laboratory results, the software would pinpoint equipment problems in their earliest stages and offer maintenance recommendations.
"The launch of the LOAMS platform confirms our commitment to support client needs for lubricant and oil analysis services," said Rupert Crasto, sales and marketing manager for Bureau Veritas Oil & Petrochemicals in the Middle East.
"In addition to our local experience, the Bureau Veritas network has over 55 years of global experience in OCM, so our clients can benefit from the expertise in OCM testing, data interpretation and advisory services."
Bureau Veritas has been providing lubricant and oil analytical services in the Middle East for over 5 years, assisting maintenance managers in the industrial, heavy duty equipment and aviation markets to predict failures and prevent catastrophic maintenance events.
The organisation is now looking to leverage this experience to improve machine reliability, reduce maintenance and repair costs and significantly extend equipment life within the oil, gas, refining and petrochemical sectors.
