TECHENOMICS International is holding free seminars in the Australian centres of Newcastle, Singleton and Blackwater aimed at developing or reinvigorating condition monitoring programs that have the potential to save companies millions of dollars.
Techenomics services mobile and fixed plant equipment across Australia, Indonesia, South East Asia, East Africa, Turkey and Northern Asia. Its core business is providing solutions to keep oil clean, test its performance and provide condition monitoring outcomes through predominantly oil analysis and filtration programs.
The Techenomics Condition Monitoring Seminar will run for two hours and be presented by leading Techenomics’ mechanical engineer Chris Purkiss. The seminars will take what Techenomics has learnt over the past 35 years and successfully practiced every day and teach companies how they can achieve condition monitoring excellence to save hundreds of thousands of dollars in the process.
The seminars will centre on improving current condition monitoring programs through KPI’s and teach companies to:
- Identify poor maintenance practices, poor trade skills; reliability improvement initiatives
- Identify both site-wide and equipment specific initiatives to implement proactive maintenance programs.
- Focus on a particular precision maintenance program, improve your oil cleanliness, oil handling practices.
“Condition monitoring programs are like a journey, irrespective of the industry and the mobile or fixed plant used. Where you are on this journey dictates what you should be measuring. As your program matures you will change the focus of your KPIs,” says Chris Purkiss.
“Techenomics has developed a process map for your condition monitoring program with KPIs for each step of the way. This seminar will help you identify where you are upon your journey and what parts of the process you should be measuring so companies can keep improving.”
The Newcastle seminar will be held on Tuesday, November 19 at Techenomics’ Head Office from 1pm to 3pm, the Singleton event will be on Tuesday, November 26 from 1pm to 3pm at a venue TBA and in Blackwater in March 2014 from 1pm to 3pm with date and venue TBA.
