Effective oil and condition monitoring enables proactive maintenance strategies and minimizes unexpected failures of machinery such as turbines. By closely monitoring the condition of lubricating oils, maintenance professionals can reduce downtime, extend equipment lifespan and identify potential issues before they escalate. Antioxidants are often added to mitigate these issues, which makes monitoring these chemicals critical for equipment performance.
Join Paul Swan, Technical Manager, APAC at ALS Tribology, and Larry Tucker, Director of Norms and Standards at Metrohm USA, as they discuss vital aspects of oil and condition monitoring and the importance of antioxidants in tribology. Gain valuable knowledge on ASTM methods and discover the latest insights into improvements being made in these areas.
