Prelubing Industrial Equipment

The rigorous demands on industrial equipment are even more so in cold-weather climates and studies have proven, the majority of engine mechanical wear, almost 90%, occurs at startup. At first crank of the engine, all the oil is in the sump and at the first rotation of the crankshaft the bearings and all galleys are dry causing metal-to-metal contact to occur damaging the engine over its lifetime.

Chris Selkirk, Director of Lateral Event Design – Case Study:

When event manager and noise consultant Chris Selkirk goes on to a Festival site for the first time, in his own words, he is looking for a “win-win-win” scenario on noise measurement and compliance.

For many years Chris has been brought in by Festival organisers for his expertise in noise measurement and acoustic understanding at large outdoor events.

From the planning stages through to the round the clock cover on the day, Chris has to ensure he has the right equipment and data to assess the risks and quality of noise from the minute the first festival goer comes through the gate.

“I really want to achieve a win-win-win situation at every event where we can get more volume onsite, less volume off site but still stay within the limits of noise legislation. Getting that balance right means everyone’s happy but it isn’t easy,” he said. “You have to be able to analyse data in a live situation and respond immediately, relaying instructions via mobile phones or two-way radios.

“I would be on site 24/7 during an event, taking constant noise measurements. The data is used to either confirm or adjust the acoustics on site and this could be in various places.”
