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. Did you know that new lubricants are dirty and that there are no petroleum grease manufacturers in the US filtering the oil to low micron levels before making the greases? The excellence program starts with the ordering of the lubes and takes the plant all the way through receiving, storing, handling, and 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. Each area of the assessment has 5-8 questions to gain an understanding of the plants knowledge and practices. Many operations rate very low and this correlates to short bearing and gear life along with 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.
