A lubrication program is low-hanging fruit for operations looking to cut downtime and maintenance costs
Some plants have moved to auto lubricators. But let’s not forget these are not maintenance free and they need continuous care. We need to check the reservoirs on a consistent frequency to make sure they have sufficient lubrication to last to the next interval of checking. We need to make sure we record the level of reservoir lubricant to make sure it is delivering lubrication between our level checks.
