Event description


A Master Class and Common Interest Work Group presented by SIRF Roundtables VICTAS.

Attendance is free for people from member companies of SIRF Roundtables in Victoria and Tasmania.

Hosted by: Nyrstar Hobart


Lubrication is the cornerstone of any reliability-driven maintenance program. Done correctly, it can maximize equipment uptime and reliability, reduce costs and achieve an entirely new level of performance. Done poorly, it can result in losses as high as 30% of a plant’s overall maintenance budget.

Nyrstar understand its importance, its something they take very seriously and are kindly hosting this masterclass, where we will have an industry expert lead us through on the precision and best practice aspects.
