Effective maintenance is the key to reduced downtime, which leads to increased production and increased profitability, and the most effective form of maintenance is predictive. Knowing about a problem before it happens and applying the correct solution can save both time and money and give you greater control of your operation. It is all about protecting your investment, your business and your profit.
Shell CARE predictive maintenance involves the analysis of the lubricant in your machines. The state of the oil in use tells us a great deal about the state of your machine. The report covers the physical condition, oil condition, additive elements, wear metals, diagnosis and actions required. The diagnosis is provided by experts with years of hands on machine experience and database of thousands of similar equipment. Shell CARE is available for most applications such as engine oils, turbine oils, hydraulic oils, bearing oils, gear oils, compressor oils and heat transfer oils.
A Shell Plant Audit will evaluate the impact that lubricants can make upon all aspects of your business. This in-depth analysis of your operations covers areas such as maintenance, storage, dispensing and disposal of lubricants. A plant audit can help you to plan optimum maintenance intervals and improve the efficiency through accurate selection and application of lubricants.
