Lubrication Excellence Assessment
Most plants and manufacturing operations have a lubrication program. But very few understand what lubrication excellence programs really are. Understanding all the fundamentals of the excellence program will move any operation to longer equipment life cycles. Many do not know new lubricants are dirty and that there are few petroleum grease manufacturers in the US filtering the oil to low micron levels before making the greases.
A Lubrication Excellence program starts with the ordering of the lubes, and takes the plant all the way through receiving, storing, handling, as well as caring for the lubes in the equipment operation.
The lubrication excellence assessment is used to help a plant understand where they stand on there lubrication practices. The assessment has 20 areas the plant will be rated, each area is rated on a 0-10 scale, within each area of the assessment is 5-8 questions to gain an understanding of the plants knowledge and practices. Many operations rate very low and this correlates to shorter bearing and gear life in addition to undesirable downtime.
The score in each area of the lubrication assessment will help guide your plant in the training and procedures that are needed to start extending equipment life immediately. The assessment alone without even the lubrication excellence training is a learning experience in itself. Our goal in every training program or assessment is to provide an unmatched learning experience. We are always making sure that you can take the process and start executing positive tasks immediately.
