Proper lubrication is the lifeblood of any organization’s equipment.  Doing it poorly – at the wrong frequency, with improper lubricants, or with dirty lubricants, and your machinery will fail much sooner, resulting in lost production and additional costs.  A superior lubrication program is an essential element in any operation.  In this session we’ll review the elements of an excellent program, including:

  • Lubricant Selection
    • Fluid properties
      • Viscosity

      • Storage
      • Dispensing
      • Machine Set-Up
