setting opto-matic oiler use a level
There are several different options for installing and setting your constant level oilers. In this blog post we go over the options available.
paper machine
A lubrication audit opens the door for many costs saving strategies, including a full list of recommendations on improving oil sampling procedures, assessing fluid storage and handling procedures, and setting appropriate target and alarm limits. Because of an audit a papermaking plant saved more than $500,000 a year in repairs.
Automatic grease dispensers
Grease Lubricators are essential for any effective preventative or predictive maintenance program. Installing them will help ensure the right lubricant, in the right amount, and in the right frequency is successfully implemented as the foundation of you predictive/preventive program.
Oil barrels with dollar sign
The past few years have been a challenge in obtaining the necessary lubricants to maintain equipment. Because of this, it becomes increasingly important to optimize lubricants in use and currently in inventory to prevent depletion. By making a few adjustments to your processes you can preserve lubricant condition and improve longevity.
red collar Opto-Matic closed system oiler
A lot of companies have installed the Closed System Opto-Matic Oiler to protect their equipment from the ingression contaminants. The red collar closed system oiler has been experiencing a significant uptick, this is due to several unique advantages it has to offer over the standard closed system oiler.
A power generation plant received new hydraulic oil that was not up to par in ISO cleanliness code to put into their critical equipment. They used a drum pump filtration system on the 55-gallon drum to filter it for 1 hour. They were surprised by the results.
oil totes and barrels
Never assume your new oil is clean. Always verify its condition with oil analysis to confirm viscosity, composition, and contamination levels. It'll confirm you received the correct oil and the next steps required to prepare it for application.
Dirty filters and transfer containers
Easily extend the life of your equipment and lubricant by making a few modifications to your lubrication program.
Cooling Towers
Case study on a cooling tower fan gearbox failure caused by reduced sampling frequency and trend analysis, which contributed to a lack of maintenance action. This resulted in an $800,000 gearbox failure.
Filter carts and drum pump
Filtration Systems are a relatively simple and effective way to control contaminants. But choosing the right filtration system for your application is not that easy. There are hundreds of products to choose from, so where do you start? Self-explore the systems with an interactive tool.
