The Journey of the Lubricant® is a series of stages, segregating your lubricant management program into 5 sequential steps during your lubricant's life on-site. Within these stages, dimensional sampling and oil analysis is key to maintaining the health of your lubricant.
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.

Too often we see customers dive into change without any formal planning in place, providing little or no positive results. In our experience, the most effective approach has been to take a step back, assess the current state of your program, identify gaps in your process, and determine the elements critical in achieving your company’s goals. This allows you to outline a holistic approach to lubrication that incorporates a short, medium, and long-term plan aligned with your current staffing levels, budget, and operation performance metrics. There are many ways to put time back on the clock and run reliably.
If lube routes and other non-value-added maintenance activities are the norm in your facility, it’s time to get more proactive and data-driven. Here’s some guidance.
