Lubrication is the cornerstone of any reliability driven maintenance department. Done correctly, it can eliminate failures and increase uptime. Done poorly, it can result in losses as high as 30% of a plant’s overall maintenance budget. In this workshop, we will walk participants through an assessment process to help them:
a) Evaluate the current status of their plant’s lubrication practices relative to best-in-class programs
b) Build a business case for precision lubrication improvements
c) Create a customized action item list to help them begin to transform their lubrication practices.
Focus Areas Include:
• Lubricant Storage, Handling and Dispensing
• Lubricant Application Practices
• Equipment Maintainability
• Contamination Control
• Oil Sampling Practices
• Oil Analysis
• Training and Education
At the end of the session, each participant will walk away with a detailed action item list customized to their own specific needs, an estimate of the current losses due to poor lubrication at their plant and a scheduled one hour follow up session with the instructor at a later date to review the action plan with all team members back at their facility.
