•    Lubricating & Sealing (periodic scheduled maintenance).
•    Scheduled periodic flushing & lubricating services to fit client’s requirements for:
•    Valves on the pipelines network.
•    Valves on the process line.
•    Wellheads in the production field.
•    X-mas tree valves for wellheads. Preventive Maintenance Program Long Term Solution This program develops a comprehensive valves database that enables the operator to manage any type of service or maintenance required. This program minimizes unplanned downtime due to valve failure andincreases productivity. Valve inventory will be reduced thus less holding cost and this program prolongs valve’s service life up to 50 – 60%. It could also reduce overall maintenance cost by 60%.Procedure
•    On-site plant audit / survey to establish valves database such as location, type, size, manufacturer, rating, serial number, etc.
•    Establish computer database, work together with customers to prepare tagging for all valves.
•    Replace standard grease nipple (button head) wherever possible with OLIVALS Vent Cap Fittings for easier and safer lubricant or sealant injection.•Flush valve with OLIVALS-VF by Air Operated Flush Injection Pump.
•    To remove debris in the valves such as hardened hydrocarbon deposit, rust and old sealant.Lubricating the valve using OLIVALS-VL; specially formulated, fully synthetic lubricant with High Pressure OLiVALS 751 Valve Master Pump.
•    Inspecting the valve, if passing then inject OLIVALS-VS 2 with High Pressure ESS 751 Valve Master Pump.
•    Computerised Valve Tagging on the valve being serviced and update information such as service date, type of product injected and next service date.Advantages of Preventive Maintenance Programme
•    Develop a comprehensive valve database that enables operator to manage type of service or maintenance required.
•    Minimize unplanned downtime due to valve failure; thereby increasing productivity.
• Reduce valve inventory, leading to lower holding costs.
•    Prolong valve’s service life by 50 – 60%.
•    Overall maintenance cost is reduced by approximately 60%.
