-Monitor and drive improvements in analyzer performance,

-Initiate and support changes in machinery technology or work practices to improve plant reliability and profitability, and

-Support reliability initiatives and programs including resolution of bad actors, management of equipment strategies, participation in (or lead) incident investigations and risk assessments, and advising on risk based work selection.

  • Provide analyzer expertise to the Maintenance and Operations teams and collaborate closely with other engineering disciplines (instrumentation, applications, control systems, reliability, etc.) in support of plant operations and improvements.
  • Provide engineering support for modifications to analyzer equipment and new installations, including reviewing and approving changes, developing engineering specifications/requirements, conducting or participating in design reviews, and supporting testing and commissioning.
  • Support development and improvements in site procedures, practices and standards, including e.g. review of maintenance procedures/practices and remain abreast of industry standards developments (e.g., ASTM, ISA, ISO),
  • Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

-Understand the purpose and function of common analyzer infrastructure elements (e.g., sample systems, sample transport loops, shelters/racks, communication systems),

-Use statistical tools to assess analyzer performance,

-Perform analyzer engineering calculations (e.g., fast loop lag time, probe wake frequency, ventilation requirements, phase envelopes) using available engineering tools,

-Support cost estimating for analyzers and analyzer systems,

-Understand and support general analyzer maintenance work processes (e.g., planning, scheduling, PMs, performance checks),

-Understand Company controls and cybersecurity relating to analyzer systems,

-Supporting the development of equipment strategies, understanding the impact of equipment sparing, redundancy, reliability, availability, maintainability, and maintenance cost in support of Operations Excellence and Capital efficiency,

-Participating in activities related to safety, risk assessment and safety incident investigations related to analyzer equipment, and

-Support capital projects by developing project design specifications for analyzer systems, providing surveillance on contractor and vendor designs and deliverables, advise and assist analyzer testing, commissioning and start-up.
