Mission Statement

Company Information

In the early 1970's under a research contract for the United States Navy, an objective was mandated to develop a more accurate diagnostic method for determining abnormal wear conditions in shipboard equipment. Initial interest was in accurate determination of wear condition of jet turbines and submarines which do not have easy access to repair facilities. The researches succeeded, and the technology was call Ferrography.

Development of Ferrography continued in the private sector over the next ten years and was eventually obtained by BP America (formerly Standard Oil of Ohio; SOHIO) in 1984. An extensive program to improve techniques and the technology resulted in successful demonstrations of the technologies' capabilities in various refineries and chemical plants. In 1985, the technology was commercialized and serves a wide variety of industries.

' PdM is Non-Destructive testing techniques employing, photo and optical microscopy technique to evaluate the Size, Shape, Composition and Concentration of equipment particles in any lubricant medium, including grease independent of whether it is a Hydrocarbon, Synthetic-Hydrocarbon, Non-Hydrocarbon, Water Based Lubricant or Grease. These technologies are the most sensitive non-intrusive methods to determine equipment condition and works particularly well with other technologies such as thermography and vibration. REAL Services capabilities include a wide variety of other testing for lubricants and fluids
following and adhering to ASTM, FTM and ISO Standards and protocols.
