lube room bulk storage and oil containers
Improper lubricant storage and handling can lead to contamination, safety threats and other problems with your lubricating oil. Transform your entire lubrication program by implementing best practices into your lube room with Bulk Oil Storage Systems that protect your lubricants during storage and handling.
Portable filtration systems
Selecting the right filtration system involves many different factors including particle size of contaminants, operating conditions of the system, and lubricant viscosity to name a few. As you research filtration systems, it’s important to consider all your options and taking your time in making the decision as it is an important component in reducing contaminants in your lubricant.

Root cause analysis is a powerful tool for investigating equipment problems when combined with oil analysis. It helps to identify what happened, why it happened, and what can be done to prevent it from happening again.

It is sometimes difficult to decide which test method should be used to determine water content in lubricating oils. Whichever method is used, one thing is certain – water is one of the major causes of lubricant, component, and machine failure.

Sensei OLEX allows maintenance personnel to quickly monitor oil level in hundreds of pieces of equipment through Internet of Things (IoT) technology. Sensei OLEX can also help Environmental, Health and Safety Managers improve their metrics in the areas of slips, trips and falls – which are the 2nd most common injuries in the workplace.

IIoT devices are not a one-size-fits-all-solution. There are many types of systems and devices that provide plants the ability to expand their technological endeavors. However, the decisions to implement IIoT can be complex and multifaceted. It is a unified effort between a variety of functions.
Hand-Held Filtration System
Water contamination in lubricating oils causes premature oil degradation and accelerated wear of machine component. Prevention and control of water contamination is very often the most reliable means of preventing equipment failures. The use of portable filtration systems will help to reduce the amount of water contamination in lubricating oils.
turbine
Turbines are critical to the operation of power generation plants, however when one goes down it has major costs associated with maintenance activities and downtime. Advanced annual oil analysis provides an additional layer of insurance, recommended by organizations like ASTM and EPRI. The testing is aligned with common issues that turbine oils often encounter.

A dark, dingy, and cluttered “lube area” can be overwhelming and frustrating to search for the lubricant that you need to top-off your equipment. But a little organization and following FIFO inventory control methods will help you find the right product and ensure it is appropriate for use - saving you time and money.
