Rotating Equipment Optimisation with Continuous Reliability Improvement (CRI)


Benchmarking studies on various oil refineries around the world have shown that rotating equipment accounts for more than 20% of all maintenance and inspection costs. Also, rotating equipment is often at key nodes of the process and is frequently critical to production. Therefore failure would lead to unacceptable downtime costs.

This program aims to provide delegates with a comprehensive understanding of how to use a combined predictive and preventive maintenance approach coupled with proper failure monitoring to achieve maximum reliability and performance from rotating equipment

Targeted Groups:

  • Operation, Technical Production & Service Professionals
  • Technical Professionals responsible for maintenance and repair of equipment
  • Professionals involved in inspection and reliability
  • Technical Professionals dealing with risk assessment and integrity analysis
  • Technicians dealing with regulating and metering and other measurements

Conference Objectives:

At the end of this conference the participants will be able to:

  • Apply the proven methodologies and templates which are introduced
  • Focus on key areas of reliability
  • Understand the nature of failure and how this affects the performance of rotating equipment
  • Make the right maintenance choices for strategic equipment
  • Reduce the impact of plant downtime
  • Unlock the true potential of all of their people
