References are particularly important while applying for a job. The best references are those who know your experience, accomplishments, character and style. Employers may check references at any stage of the interview process. They often speak with industry professionals that do not appear on the candidate's reference list. An outstanding reference may become an average reference if the employer receives a phone call without any prior knowledge of the company identity. A huge percentage of employers utilize LinkedIn as a tool to recruit candidates and evaluate their capabilities, accomplishments and their capabilities. Consistent and timely communication with the references is a key for them to be prepared and motivated to say positive things about candidate in his job search. The best way to build a strong reference list is to earn it through experience and accomplishments, solid work ethic, passion for work and team spirit. Source

Poley, Jack states that a user's actual job starts after setting up the In-Service Fluid Analysis (ISFA)-condition monitoring (CM) program. Poley, Jack states that users commit certain common errors when implementing such a program. They fail to set up the database completely and accurately. This causes ineffective or harmful commentary from misinformation. Samples should be taken after a component is warmed up, which helps in dispersing wear and contamination more evenly or before a component cools down significantly after being shut down. Source

The article discusses the notion of combining static event data involving a suite of tests, along with continuous data in the May TLT. This is a tall order that will not be fulfilled easily, nor fulfilled for any and all machines. There will be practical and technical limits, but there is no doubt this is the pursuit that is continuing to gain traction. This is a consideration with sensors, and it affects the decisions one can expect to make with confidence based strictly on sensor data and their alarm levels. Usually it is necessary to vet the sensor's readings with a more specific suite of tests. Water may be the one exception. Taking cold samples or sampling from the bottom of a sump, for openers, are nonstarters. For that matter, extracting an aliquot from the sample bottle submitted to the lab has its own repeatability issues, even when one is alert enough to shake the sample vigorously. Source

Experts share their views on the good and bad aspects of the state of condition monitoring (CM). Significant layoffs and other cost-cutting measures by companies have adversely affected the state of condition monitoring. Effective CM requires subject matter experts (SMEs) who review and evaluate every aspect of CM. Lack of competent SMEs in the industry is having adverse impacts on CM, as SMEs require experience and time to improve their skills. One positive development is that CM is gaining popularity as a way of maintenance life, but economic efficiency is still not a fundamental practice. Source

ISFA has now stretched the particle size inspection from virtual solution to 1,000 p and larger. But there is only one instrument that can see the entirety of these particles when properly applied: a microscope. A fairly low- power microscope can be effectively used to inspect filter patches created by solvent extracting a specified amount of lube and passing it through a rather fine filter, meaning all such particles are entrapped. Ni and Co may be found in a few machine parts, where something like Stellite is involved, and Ni is also used as a barrier plate in certain bearing types, such as Cu/Pb matrix, but trust me on this, practically speaking one is basically looking at Fe-based particles, element-wise due to the overwhelming odds that only negligible traces of Ni or Co will be included in the analysis mix.
