Effective equipment lubrication should be the goal for all maintenance, reliability and operational teams. It improves production performance and, ultimately, an organisation’s bottom-line profitability.
Many lubricant OEM’s, such as The Molykote brand, encourage plants to consider the 6 “R’s” when selecting a lubricant team to accomplish maintenance and lubrication goals – right people, right time, right quantity, right product, right method, right track.
Challenging the status quo is often the biggest obstacle for companies seeking an effective lubrication strategy. By assessing their current lubrication practices, plant managers can quickly identify improvement areas and make cost-effective decisions to reduce unplanned downtime and enhance machinery life.
