Petlin (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd was incorporated in March 1999 and has a Low Density Polyethylene plant that was commissioned in February 2002. The plant has a capacity of 255,000 tons per annum. The aim of the plant is to generate a reasonable return by manufacturing top quality products. To realize this aim, it’s important for the operators of the plant to operate the machines in accordance to the parameters set by the original equipment manufacturer. This will also ensure the availability and reliability of the plant. It is also important to regularly monitor the performance of the plant in relation to the operation and maintenance activities in order to prepare a better plan for continuous improvement. The Hyper-Compressors are the most fragile component in the system as they’re running under fatigue conditions and high operating pressures. It is essential to have the right processes and procedures in place to ensure that safety is not compromise in meeting the production target.
