Description

Oil Conference 2008 – May 1 and 2 Novotel Hotel, Sydney Olympic Park

Hello,
The aim of this conference on lubricant condition monitoring, as it applies to mining and power generation industries, is to explain and demonstrate how it is possible to save your company tens and possibly hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in maintenance and capital equipment costs.
We will have presentations from world leaders in the field of lubricant formulation, testing and specifications for the various types of equipment. Identification of the condition monitoring requirements leads to the need for more rapid analysis reporting only achievable with on-site instruments. We’ll demonstrate a variety of testing instruments for onsite purposes.
I trust that you will gain valuable information and cost savings from this conference.
I also trust that your stay at the Novotel at Sydney Olympic Park will be comfortable.

Managing Director
