Why is lubrication so important?

To ensure that you get the most from your machinery, it is essential to ensure that it is properly lubricated. This means the right type of lubrication for the operating conditions, as well as the right amount.

Lubrication serves several purposes within machine components. 

Firstly, it reduces the coefficient of friction, allowing machine components to operate more efficiently. This can reduce energy consumption, saving the business money.

It also helps to protect components from contamination, keeping dust and dirt out of delicate components such as bearings. 

Lubrication also helps to extend the life of components, by reducing wear. This gives components the best possible chance of achieving their maximum possible service life. 


How to maintain your lubrication system

To maintain your lubrication system effectively, you should:

  • Regular Inspections: Conduct frequent checks to ensure all parts of the lubrication system are functioning correctly. Look for signs of leaks, wear, and contamination.

  • Proper Lubricant Selection: Use the right type of lubricant as specified by the manufacturer to ensure compatibility with the machinery and operating conditions.

  • Cleanliness: Keep the lubrication system and surrounding areas clean to prevent contamination.

  • Monitor Lubricant Levels: Regularly check and maintain the correct lubricant levels to avoid over-lubrication or under-lubrication.

  • Replace Filters and Lubricants: Follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for replacing filters and lubricants to ensure optimal performance and longevity of the system.

Regular maintenance helps to extend the life of your machinery, improve efficiency, and prevent unexpected breakdowns.
