  • An overview of current printed literature.
  • Oil mist/oil fog vs. traditional lubrication.
  • Case studies of real world machine improvements.
  • Pro-active repair/upgrade opportunities.
  • Best practice topics.


  • Also in this speech, Mr. Bloch compares highly similar refineries in the United States; some of which have a pump mean-time-between-failure (MTBF) of just under 3 years, while others have a pump mean-time-between-failure of just over 10 years. This speech helps examine why this is the case.
