8.00 – 8.15
Welcome Address
An overview of the conference, setting the expectations for learning & collaboration.
Soegeng Rijanto Rahardjo
Area Sales Manager – Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore
Chevron Malaysia Limited
8.15 – 9.00
When and Why to Choose Synthetic Lubricants: Making the Financial and Reliability Case
Understanding and applying oil analysis data effectively can help select right lubricants and optimise your PM schedules, thus leading to improved equipment reliability and cost savings. This case study includes the value Synthetic oils play when the right lubricant is chosen for your applications.
Paul Krans
Senior Reliability Supervisor
Phu Bia Mining
9.00 – 9.45
Making Sense of Failure & Used Oil Analysis
A case-study presentation will explain usage of Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) in Failure analysis on shaft and bearing and understand differences between ICP and Ferrography. Session will also cover Non-destructive testing methods to improve Plant Reliability and Tips on using getting the most out of Oil Analysis Program for root cause investigation.
Chee Wee
Technical Development Manager
Intertek Group
9.45 – 10.15
Why Lower Viscosity Saves Fuel
As the industry seeks ways to improve fuel economy; lowering the viscosity of Engine Oils has proven to be beneficial.  This session will show you the methods and calculations used to determine the fuel economy benefits of going from 15W-40 to 10W-30 heavy duty engine oils, without sacrificing durability.
Greg Croce
Global Delo Technical Manager
Chevron Lubricants US
10.15 – 10.30
Morning Break
10.30 – 11.15
Reduce Unscheduled Downtime and Maintain “As New” Performance for Longer
Gain insights into complexities associated with modern diesel engines and blended fuels to develop an understanding of applying best practices to reduce the impacts upon high pressure common rail engines. You will also learn methods to improve vehicle availability and site productivity.
Ang Wei Sheng
Technical Support Specialist, Singapore
Donaldson Company
11.15 – 12.15
Predictive Maintenance Made Easy for Critical Equipment
Having a strong Predictive Maintenance (PdM) strategy that monitors the condition of your assets is essential. Applying and integrating Thermography into PdM program helps detect and compare heat signature, early symptom of equipment damage. This session will also cover how it can be applied to electric motors and backup batteries. Armed with this knowledge, scheduled maintenance and replacement planning will keep your plant operating smoothly.
Azhary Jauharie
Application Engineer
Fluke South East Asia
12.15 – 13.15
13.15 – 14.00
How Lubrication Best Practices Affect Machine Reliability
Lubrication is used in many moving physical assets, yet only a small minority improves critical machine’s reliability, why is that? Find out what world class lubrication looks like and how to get there in a systematic, sustainable manner. Get the results you expect.
Juan Bautista L.
Consultant & Trainer
Noria (PT DRS)
14.00 – 14.30
Why TBN is Lesser Concern in Used Oil Analysis with New Generation Oils
Since the introduction of API CJ-4, and now API CK-4 products, we have been developing products with less than 1% sulfated ash. As a result, expect to see a reduction in normal TBN numbers while the performance of the oil and drain intervals are equal or better than previous products. In this discussion, you will learn why TBN should not be as much a concern in used oil analysis with new generation oils.
Greg Croce
Global Delo Technical Manager
Chevron Lubricants US
14.30 – 15.00
How Particulate Contamination in Hydraulic Fluid Causes Failure
Particulate contamination in hydraulics has been a long-standing problem due to the damage and system failures. In this session, you will learn from a case study investigating the impact of high particle count fluids on a high pressure hydraulic system. Get insights on different stages where impact is most significant, leading to what we know as failure.
Nathan Knotts
Global Industrial Technical Manager
Chevron Lubricants US
15.00- 15.15
Afternoon Break
15.15 – 16.00
Extracting Value from Air Intake Systems
Today’s engines require air intake systems that can do more and last longer, often in increasingly smaller spaces. In this session, you will get detailed insights into critical air intake system maintenance practices to protect your valuable plant and equipment. Learn best practice to extend filter changeout intervals, reducing unscheduled downtime with lower material and labour costs, while improving engine longevity.
Hayden Schulz
National Technical Services Manager
Donaldson Company
16.00 – 16.30
Micropitting Causes Macro Problems in Industrial Gears
Industrial gears are susceptible to micro-pitting, which if left unchecked can lead to gear damage and disastrous equipment failure. This presentation will feature key elements of the industry recognized test (FVA-54/7), showing differentiations between commercially available general products (those claiming micropitting protection) and products with known high micropitting resistance.
Nathan Knotts
Global Industrial Technical Manager
Chevron Lubricants US
16.30 – 17.15
Optimising Bucket Pin Life
Bucket pins of loaders, dozers and other heavy equipment used in the mining and quarrying industries are crucial components requiring the use of high quality greases combined with the correct maintenance regime to ensure optimised machinery uptime, reliability and production efficiency. Learn how to select the right kind of grease for your application and how to maintain your equipment to deliver optimised reliability and productivity through correct lubrication of the pins and bushes.
