Oil Analysis Workshop For Fast Response And Sustainable Programme

OA Kota Kinabalu August 2014



Condition Monitoring (CM) is the process of monitoring a parameter of condition in machinery, such that a significant change is indicative of a developing failure. High system availability is the most effective lever for increasing productivity. The less downtime is the better. That is why it is important to identify potential sources of error early and to perform scheduled maintenance at the right time within the production cycle. At CbM Solutions Sdn. Bhd. we have a philosophy we termed “Detect-to-Protect”. Ourtraining programme aims to increase level of awareness to allow for closer monitoring of heavy machineries to detect signs of issues that require further attention in order to protect the asset, reduce unpredicted equipment failure and down-time, improve equipment life and performance, optimize efficiencies and maximize profit. Our experienced facilitators will teach you on how to diagnostic data collection from many input such as vibration, ultrasound, infrared, oil, and others.




At the end of this program, participants will be able to:


  • Identify cases where oil analysis can be applied and areas that other CM such as Vibration Analysis, Thermography, Acoustic Emission and ultrasound are needed.
  • Draw up a Cost vs. Benefit analysis to get buy-ins.
  • List down various strategies for oil analysis and identify when it is applicable given the various scenarios.
  • Identify pre-existing issues dampening a proper implementation of oil analysis, possible solutions and setting achievable goal/target.
  • List various functions of lubricants and identify the key functions in variety of applications.
  • Provide a basic idea how lubricant is made and list down possible base oils and additives being added and the functions of variety of additives.
  • Classify various types of engine oils, cylinder oils, hydraulic oils, compressor oils, gear oils the similarities and differences in terms of functions and formulations.
  • Understand various specifications of lubricants and knowing how to match with appropriate applications and conditions.
  • Define parameters relevant in monitoring degradation of lubricants in various applications.
  • Define parameters relevant in monitoring contaminants of lubricants and wear metals in various applications.
  • Design suitable oil analysis programme relevant to the company.
  • Understand condemning limits relevant to lubricant degradations, contaminations and wear
  • Relate sequence of events that may occur during failure development related to oil analysis.
  • Do a simple cross referencing within own pool of equipments.
  • Able to identify key data and issues related to the case study.
  • Know what is defined as good sample, where and how to take good oil sample.
  • Present feasible plan to improve existing oil sampling programme.
  • List various advance oil analysis techniques and relate to circumstances that requires it.
  • List various circumstances that requires VA in-conjunction with OA.
  • Identify circumstances that may require such technologies.
  • Know what are routes for certification, should that become desired for personnel development.
