- Conditioning Monitoring
Energy Petroleum accurately analyzes equipment for wear rates, diagnosed fluid contamination and serviceability to predict early warning signs, preventing equipment shutdown.
Our proactive approach results in significant and immediate savings for our customers. Preventative maintenance maximizes your equipment reliability and run time.
Energy Petroleum’s Condition Monitoring Includes:
- Filtration and Purification FAQ’s
- Where do you perform your services?
Services are generally performed on-site. Occasionally, fluids can be remotely purified as necessary.
- How many times can a fluid be purified?
Energy Petroleum has demonstrated that most fluids can be purified many, many times over. In fact, when fluids are kept in good operating condition, their useful life can be extended by over 1000%.
- How often should I decontaminate my fluid system?
Because Energy Petroleum is a reliability focused organization, we recommend system decontamination at each equipment outage, prior to initial commissioning, and after any catastrophic failure.
- Who does the actual work?
We do! Our technicians are high trained and hold various industry certifications and credentials.
- How do I know that my fluid and system have successfully been purified?
Energy Petroleum utilizes real-time state-of-the-art technology in fluid analysis such as laser particle counters. Our on-site instruments will measure fluid and system conditions throughout the process and the data is immediately available to us and our clients. Furthermore, once the project is completed, Energy Petroleum sends all samples to an independent laboratory for further testing and verification.
- What happens to the contaminants that are removed?
Solid contaminants are collected in bulk and in filter media. Moisture and gasses are either collected or scrubbed out during the process. Removed contamination is either left behind at the plant or we can arrange for its disposal according to local rules and regulations.
- What does the purification process cost?
Fluid purification, depending on volumes processed, typically costs far less than the cost of new replacement fluid. In fact, most of our clients can expect to save tens of thousands of dollars annually in reduced new fluid purchases alone.
- Will the RSI Process damage or remove my fluid’s additives?
No. With few exceptions, additives are evenly dispersed in solution throughout the fluid. Occasionally, when certain fluid additives are large enough to be removed, Energy Petroleum will change the process to ensure this doesn’t happen.
- Is color a good indication of my fluid’s cleanliness?
No. Color has little to do with cleanliness levels. In fact, fluids can often appear to be normal while actually they are severely contaminated.
- Fluid Purification
When contaminants are introduced into a fluid system, the results can be devastating.
In today’s world of sophisticated equipment and the accompanying warranties, rely on Energy Petroleum to ensure that your equipment and its lubricant meets or exceeds manufacturer’s specification. Our primary focus is to ensure reliability of plant production. Unscheduled outages are minimized and scheduled maintenance may often be extended to later dates.
On-site purification will help you:
On-site purification gives you:
- Fluid Reliability
Energy Petroleum proactively ensures that equipment wear rates are minimized and machine components attain extended service lives. With a primary focus on equipment reliability and plant production, unscheduled minimized and scheduled turnarounds dates may be extended.
Reduce New Fluid Purchases
With Energy Petroleum, the need to purchase new fluid is considerably reduced. With service costs lower than replacement costs, most plants save thousands annually.
On-site Purification Reduces Contamination such as:
- System Decontamination
A high percentage of premature equipment failures are caused by contamination concealed in reservoirs, tanks, coolers, housings & system piping. It is critical that the fluid system, not merely the fluid itself, is decontaminated properly prior to start-up.
Energy Petroleum’s purpose built equipment achieves the maximum cleanliness levels required for start-up and long term reliability through our exclusive process.
This highly specialized process includes:
