Pioneer Engineering Tribology and Lubrication Services and Training Course
May 19th, 2014
Pioneer Engineering new comprehensive tribology and lubrication services and training course to our menu of reliability engineering and vibration analysis capabilities.
“A proactive lubrication program is an important maintenance practice and helps to increase efficiency, reduce down-time, reduce energy consumption, reduce wear rate of equipment, increase productivity, and reduce maintenance costs,” Chad Wilcox, director of engineering services said. “Pioneer Engineering’s development of an introductory training class that focuses on the fundamentals of oil analysis and proper machine lubrication, gives clients the opportunity to learn more about the benefits of incorporating another proven predicative maintenance tool to their condition monitoring program in order to help increase their equipment and their facility’s long-term reliability.”
The oil analysis and lubrication services will provide clients a variety of options for tribology services, including the creation of a personalized plant lubrication program, troubleshooting current and ongoing lubrication problems and providing oil sample collection and analysis. Pioneer Engineering’s reliability specialist, Dave Tiffany, is Machine Lubrication Technician II and Machine Lubrication Analyst II certified and offers decades of experience in lubrication and oil analysis to determine lubrication needs are and the services required to help keep customer facilities at peak performance. Dave will also be teaching the “Introduction to Machine Lubrication and Oil Analysis” course that the firm offers in both a public course setting in Fort Collins, Colo., or in a private setting a client’s location.
“Helping our clients identify the right location, the right time, the right type, and the right quantity of lubricant to use for their rotating equipment is just one part of this new service,” said Jessica Dieken, director of marketing and sales. “Because we are working side by side with our clients at their facilities around the world and talking to them one-on-one during our training classes, we are constantly learning firsthand how we can improve our business to make their facilities and operations more reliable and provide them the tools they need to work smarter, not harder.
