Due to long lead times and critical operations, many plants in petrochemical and refining purchase equipment long before it is needed. This equipment can start arriving at the plant site up to a year or more before being installed and is typically staged in a remote field where it is exposed to damaging elements.

Join Keith Macaluso, with T.F. Hudgins Lubrication Products, for a discussion on how oil mist technology can significantly reduce premature failure on new equipment installations. Keith covers the following:
