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.
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.
Learn how to obtain a multilayered oil sample from 55-gallon drums using a hand-held vacuum pump or a pipette style sampling tube.
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.
Using Oil Intelligence to follow the lubricant's journey from arrival through its life cycle, you can see how every step offers an opportunity to implement practices that mitigate risks.
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.
Sensei helps you keep constant watch on the lubricant inside your equipment in real-time. Now, instead of doing the typical lube routes, unnecessary maintenance and emergency service...your team can move more proactively and efficiently.
It is that time of year to think about budget planning and investing in your lubrication program. It can be the single greatest factor in decreasing unplanned downtime. It also provides the greatest ROI. It doesn’t matter where you are in your lubrication program, as long as you continue to plan to improve it incrementally, you’ll see these benefits. Let’s look at how to achieve this and how it relates to budget planning.
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.
