The Panama City testing facility will provide lubricant and oil analysis services, assisting maintenance managers in both the industrial and heavy duty equipment markets to predict failures and prevent catastrophic maintenance events.  Using the exclusive Lube Oil Analysis Management System (LOAMSSM) software, clients will have access to one application that brings equipment testing and analysis data together from locations around the world.

“The opening of the Panama City facility confirms our commitment to support client needs for lubricant and oil analysis services in Panama and the broader Central America region,” said Alexander Barrantes, general manager for Inspectorate Panama, S.A.

Oil analysis identifies trends in wear and contamination and monitors changes in the physical properties of lubricants and hydraulic oils. Laboratory data analysts can then pinpoint equipment problems in their earliest stages and make informed recommendations that can improve machine reliability, reduce maintenance and repair costs and significantly extend equipment life.

“Bureau Veritas is committed to investing in our network to ensure we are the global provider of choice for oil condition monitoring services.  Increasing our footprint in Panama is integral to our global expansion strategy and will provide industrial and heavy duty equipment customers in this region with industry leading expertise,” said Matt Hopkinson, senior vice president, Global Oil & Gas of Bureau Veritas’ Commodities Division.
