Integrating Industry 4.0 techniques into an on-site oil analysis program

Lubricant analysis is a common tool utilized in predictive maintenance programs to assess machine condition and extend lubricant life. Join this webinar to learn how AMETEK Spectro Scientific’s on-site fluid intelligence software, TruVu360™, helped an industrial on-site oil analysis laboratory effectively manage their lubricant analysis program on a global scale.

AMETEK Spectro Scientific's TruVu™ 360 fluid intelligence software is designed to help reliability professionals implement on-site oil analysis into their condition monitoring programs. Taking the guess work out of on-site oil analysis, TruVu 360 seamlessly integrates both equipment knowledge from the in-house expert with built-in fluid intelligence algorithms to create custom lubricant condition monitoring programs. Customized programs allow reliability professionals to easily track global program success, normalize workflow and quickly generate value-add data that contributes to the overall success and bottom line of the organization.

In this webinar, we will explore how an industrial on-site oil analysis laboratory incorporated TruVu 360 into their workflow. Equipped with an RDE-OES spectrometer, IR spectrometer, viscometer and particle imaging device, we will learn how the in-house oil analysis laboratory, integrated with TruVu 360, improved sample turnaround time, normalized workflow and better utilized the valuable in-house resources available at the plant.

Key Takeaways

  • Learn how to easily bring oil analysis capabilities in-house
  • Understand how to manage your lubricant analysis program on a global scale
  • Standardize oil analysis knowledge world-wide
