This is an excellent tool for measuring the value of a well-managed in-service fluids analysis program as it allows the program to be viewed in terms of money saved as opposed to just another operational expense.
The cost of running the program is compared to the ultimate cost of not running the program based on likelihood and consequence of failure. Other cost benefits such as optimizing drain intervals, warranty support and improved resale value are incorporated into the calculation if relevant.
Data is collected one-on-one with our customer to identify specific variables related to the true cost of testing and asset failure cost avoidance. This tool is designed for industrial, rolling stock, and over the road applications to track performance of reliability practices through in-service fluids analysis. A summary report is provided, as well as reporting on the details used to calculate RoI.
Whether a customer is new to testing in-service lubricants and wishes to understand benefits, or existing customers wish to measure the success of their return on investment, ALS Tribology’s technical and account service team will work directly with equipment owners, management, and maintenance personnel to provide assistance for establishing measurables and calculate Return on Investment and Reliability Cost Avoidance.
