With over 70 000 possible products manufactured by the petrochemical and chemical industries either fueling vehicles or other manufacturers’ supply chain, it is safe to say that every plant has its own challenges. Nevertheless, they all face a global competition, strict environmental regulation and immense pressure to maximize their production with optimally low resource consumption. In many plants, critical high voltage motors do not have a drop-in replacement, increasing the pressure to perform repairs and maintenance during operations or planned shutdowns. Out-of-schedule maintenance of critical electric motors, generators and pressure vessels comes at a very costly price but mostly, catastrophic failures can have devastating repercussion on employees, communities and the environment.
