Nkwe Mining Services experts have participated in failure investigations for numerous industries. The failure investigation services focus on solving a specific problem using Root Cause Failure Analysis, rather than simply identifying the obvious and secondary issues. Our goal is to quickly identify the root cause of the failure and provide recommendations to keep similar failures from occurring in the future.

Typical Failure Investigation Procedure

The failure investigation procedure will vary depending on the nature and complexity of the failure, however a typical procedure includes:
  1. Reviewing preliminary data
  2. Site visit and inspection
  3. Testing and lab studies as needed
  4. Reporting findings and recommendations
Laboratory Studies

Oil analysis is an extremely useful technique for routinely monitoring machine health, but often the analysis techniques and results are misunderstood and misapplied. When routine oil analysis reports indicate caution or critical limits, personnel often fail to follow through with the necessary exception tests. As a result, important information is ignored until it is too late.
