When it comes to rotating equipment, it is a question of when—not if—a failure will occur. In about 50% of all bearing failures, improper lubrication turns out to be the root cause. Read our blog to learn how oil viscosity relates to engine performance.
Read this blog to learn how to properly clean and check your thermostatic valves according to AMOT and engine OEM standards and why this is important to overall engine performance and lifespan.
When lube oil viscosity goes out of spec, compressor bearings begin to fail. The loss of proper lubrication leads to production downtime and high repair costs. This is particularly challenging for refineries and other petrochemical operations using large gas compressors where the operating environment can be extreme.
Trying to decide which positive air shut off system (PASS) is best for your application? Read this blog to learn our recommendations for the three most common applications.
From "how does a positive air shut off work?" to "what size valve do I need?" these are the diesel engine safety questions we most often hear from our customers.
Viscosity is an important parameter in determining the quality of marine fuels, but traditional sample testing may not represent the entire supply. Read our latest blog to learn how the VISCOpro 2100 provides a solution to this dilemma through real-time monitoring of viscosity during bunkering operations.
Many people are concerned that positive air shut off valves are difficult to install. However, this is not the case, and AMOT offers several options for installing our valves, so you can choose what best suits your needs.
Due to the high risk of spills or gas leaks, many oil and gas production sites ban obvious ignition sources including cigarettes, lighters, and cellphones. Unfortunately, many of these same sites overlook diesel engines as an additional source of ignition. In this blog, we’ll discuss which diesel-powered equipment used in downstream oil and gas operations need to be equipped with an air shut off system.
Thermostatic mixing valves are useful in applications that must ensure a constant outlet temperature to prevent damage or injury. Read our blog and learn how a TMV works and why they are important.
It is not uncommon to find upwards of 30-40 diesel engines at an upstream oil and gas site, but which of these should be equipped with an air shut off system? Check out our blog to learn the answer to this important question.
