Secure your operations with proactive maintenance
Jim Marnoch and his team provided SKF ProActive Reliability Maintenance services. After thorough analysis of the vibration signatures and the damaged bearings, they found a long term solution. SKF NoWear® bearings along with a new sealing arrangement made all the difference, allowing the compressors to run six times longer than previous, and they’re still running today. At today’s high oil prices, for every breakdown that can be avoided, the platform operator saves tens of million dollars. On top of that, these improvements also reduce health, safety and environmental risks.
It’s another great example of knowledge engineering at work.
