In recent years, maintenance individuals have come to understand the importance of oil cleanliness to reliable machine operation. Accomplishing this requires employment of various tools, such as filtration, desiccation, clean transfer equipment, and proper lubricant selection to create a lubrication reliability program.

Maintaining oil cleanliness is vital to the performance of lubricated equipment. Oil contamination accelerates the rate of component wear and leads to premature component failure. In a globally competitive market companies that can maintain machine reliability and uptime will be able to keep their costs at a more competitive level, see increased savings and run a greener operation. Discover how maintaining proper machine lubrication by reducing contamination and increasing oil cleanliness, through oil sampling, oil analysis, and filtering can help you achieve machine efficiency and improve your facility’s carbon footprint. Why? Efficient machines reduce your carbon footprint because they consume less energy and oil.
