OCM Case Study

BUREAU VERITAS COMMODITIES

Download our OCM Case Study to discover how routine used oil analysis can avoid catastrophic equipment failure and costly shutdowns.

This case study illustrates how routinely monitoring equipment and lubricant condition can effectively identify the root cause of water contamination in two Autoclave gearboxes critical to a chemical manufacturing plant’s operations. The resulting investigation allowed maintenance personnel to take corrective action before water ingression caused abnormal wear significant enough to affect equipment performance and negatively impact operational costs.


Bureau Veritas’ used oil analysis services identifies trends in wear and contamination and monitors changes in the physical properties of lubricants and hydraulic oils. Our expert laboratory data analysts can then pinpoint equipment problems in their earliest stages, and:
  • Make informed recommendations that can improve machine reliability
  • Reduce maintenance and repair costs; and
  • Significantly extend equipment life.
