Reliability Services

After over 200 years of helping our customers succeed, we’ve learned some of the quickest, most efficient ways to help our customers improve plant reliability and as a result - reduce costs. That’s how we came up with our standardized reliability services offering: a set of packaged solutions that help improve the reliability of a plant’s rotating equipment.

Our reliability experts quickly assess the current condition of your equipment, as well as help you benchmark your reliability program and maintenance practices. Then, we can help you identify any gaps, implement gap closure plans, and train your personnel in the latest methods and techniques to help these improvements last.

Our condition-based monitoring methodology is founded on reliability-centered maintenance (RCM) and failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA) fundamentals, and is managed by experienced reliability and rotating equipment engineers.


Reliability Services can help you:

  • Improve safety: By ensuring that industry best practices are in place, plants adopt a “Safety First” approach designed to prevent accidents and protect the safety and health of employees, customers, the public and the environment.
  • Improve efficiency of operations: By evaluating the condition and performance of rotating equipment and establishing clearly defined operational procedures, plant equipment runs at its best efficiency point (BEP) and contributes to overall efficiency.
  • Reduce downtime and improve reliability: By ensuring that proper PM/PdM practices are in place, plant equipment availability is improved, which in turn leads to increased productivity and profitability.
  • Lower cost of ownership: By improving equipment reliability, maintenance costs decrease, and equipment lifespan increases, resulting in a reduced total cost of ownership.

As your reliability partner, Flowserve will help you by quickly developing a comprehensive recommendation plan and execution strategy to help you achieve sustainable reliability and optimal plant performance levels.


Flowserve can provide the following work-scope:

  • Review equipment condition, system performance and failure history:
    • Perform a visual audit, noting corrective actions to be taken concerning the equipment and system auxiliaries
    • Perform equipment performance testing
  • Perform an FMEA for targeted equipment population
  • Review PM/PdM programs
  • Supply a detailed report that includes:
    • Opportunities to improve equipment condition and performance
    • Gaps in existing PM/PdM programs
    • Solutions for chronically problematic equipment and systems using Return on Investment (ROI) projections
  • Perform a data management (ERP/CMMS) extraction that includes:
    • Flowstar equipment and repair history upload and continued maintenance
    • Reliability reporting through Flowstar.net
  • Provide sustainability program and training recommendations:
    • Recommend the specific training courses to support sustainability development by utilizing Flowserve Learning Resource Centers (on-site custom courses also available)
  • Deliver an implementation workshop:
    • Deliver a strategic plan for implementation of recommendations
    • Review equipment upgrade and re-rate proposals
    • Provide IPS Wireless Monitoring support (when applicable)
