Shell Lube Advisors help you use the right Shell oil, at the right time, every time. By helping you on-site to improve the lubrication and maintenance practice of your equipment and vehicles, significant benefits can be achieved, increasing productivity, limiting downtime, and providing you with a competitive advantage.
Our field-based engineers are there to help you identify areas for improvement and potential cost savings by improving lubrication and maintenance practices.
With our field-based engineers on-site we can help identify your lubrication requirements, the products needed and recommended maintenance intervals.
Oil condition monitoring that enables you to continually track your equipment’s performance and use those insights to inform better maintenance decisions. Continually monitoring the condition of oil inside your equipment can provide an early-warning of impending failures empowering you to stop potential failures in their tracks. It can also help determine appropriate oil-drain intervals, and help extend equipment life.
Highly-trained lubricants experts can spend time at your sites, inspecting critical machinery and identifying opportunities to minimise downtime and maximise productivity.
Upskill your employees through a customised training programme, delivered in-person or through our e-learning portal by technical experts with substantial in-field experience.
We have expertise to survey the machineries to find out the health of the bearings in the critical equipments. Methodologies followed are Condition Monitoring with Predictive Tools like Vibration Analyser, Thermal Imaging, Using instruments like Stroboscope, Endoscope, Stethoscope, Ultrasonic Leak Detector which will reduce the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) to organizations.
We can conduct PPE survey and help organization to train each employee who must use PPE. Employees must be trained to know at least the following:
Metalworking fluids are formulated to work within a specific concentration range. These working concentration limits are determined and recommended by the manufacturer for optimal fluid performance. All fluids have a “minimum concentration” level, which must be adhered to maintain bio-stability, good corrosion protection and cutting performance. If this concentration level is allowed to drop below the minimum level for any given length of time, various problems can arise. Bio-instability and bio-mass development, low pH, corrosion of ferrous alloys (red rust), emulsion splitting, poor cutting performance and ultimately the metal removal fluid disposal are some problems that can occur. Coolant concentration is easily checked by means of an optical device called a refractometer.
High levels of tramp oil in the coolant increases the potential for anaerobic bacteria (requiring no oxygen) to establish a foothold in the coolant sump. This is done by providing an excellent food source for these microbes. Various anaerobes produce as a byproduct, H2S (hydrogen sulfide) gas. This gas is released when the sulfur components of the slideway lubricant and spindle lubes are metabolized by anaerobic bacteria.
AIRScan offers a reliable analysis and actionable insights for energy efficiency improvements. AIRScan follows the ISO 11011 standard for compressed air energy efficiency assessments. This ensures that your complete installation is assessed according to a clearly defined framework. Moreover, if you have, or are considering, an ISO 50001 energy management system, the AIRScan audit can serve as your benchmark. A typical AIRScan identifies tangible measures that result in 25-30 % energy savings.
Our water audit identifies water needs and wastewater sources throughout an entire facility, and describes each of the identified streams by flow rate, type, concentrations, and variability of the substances and compounds. Water plant audits can help facilities develop appropriate programmes to meet their water intake-reduction and water reuse goals.
After determining the facility’s water reduction and wastewater recycle and reuse goals, the various sources of wastewater can then be matched with the facility’s water needs. An economic model for wastewater recycles and reuse can then be created.
