The new laboratory 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) developed by Analysts, Inc., any client with access to the internet can bring equipment testing and analysis data together in one application from anywhere around the world.

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 the earliest stages and make informed recommendations that improve machine reliability, reduce maintenance and repair costs, and significantly extend equipment life.

“The opening of this Alberta laboratory confirms our commitment to support client needs for lubricant and oil analysis services in Canada,” said Fred Hutchings, senior vice president of Petroleum Services of Maxxam Analytics.

“Bureau Veritas is pleased to now offer our oil condition monitoring services to existing and new customers in Canada. We will continue to leverage the industry expertise of Analysts, Inc. and their renowned LOAMSSM software as we expand our OCM capabilities globally,” said Matt Hopkinson, senior vice president, Global Oil & Gas of Bureau Veritas’ Commodities Division.

Maxxam Analytics’ Petroleum Technology Center is located at 6744 - 50 Street NW, Edmonton, AB T6B 3M9.  For more information please call (855) 998-9899, visit maxxam.ca/ocm or email OCM@maxxam.ca.
