MAINTENANCE TECHNOLOGY

LUBRICATION STRATEGIES
oil reservoir, resolved all issues. A similar solution can work for other
applications in harsh environments. One example would be to wrap
thermostat-controlled blanket-warming devices around oil or grease
pails/barrels to offset the effects of cold temperatures.
S Ensure all "access-challenged" equipment receives its share of
lubrication. Poor accessibility to lubrication points is often a given in
elevated transfer equipment, including cranes and conveyors. Since
many of these systems don't warrant the cost of a fully automated
approach, they're often set up for manual greasing that may or may
not occur on a consistent basis. In such cases, a simple, cost-effective,
engineered solution involves replacing the grease nipple with a $30
automated single-point lubricator.
Note that care must be exercised in setting up this type of solution,
as the installation's elevation will affect the device's dispensing rate.
A 0 or 00 grease is often required in colder climates. Depending on
the size of the bearing, an automated single-point lubricator can
consistently dispense the proper amount of grease for as long as two
years.
S Improve lubricant storage to increase shelf life. Oil has a shelf life
determined by the type of base oil, additive package ingredients, and
how the oil is stored prior to use. Most lubricating-oil manufacturers
claim an estimated shelf life of +/- 5 yr. when stored correctly indoors.
Wide swings in temperature can result in wax and sediment creation
(when too cold), premature oxidation (when too hot), and condensation moisture contamination (from hot/cold temperature cycling).
High-temperature lubricants can be manufactured with volatile
carrier agents that could flash off during storage-especially if open
to air-and cause the remaining lube to "thicken" or coagulate.
Therefore, be sure to store all of your lubricants in a dedicated, closed,
temperature-controlled, on-site lubrication storage room/building.
S Create lubrication awareness and provide training. A little
basic lubrication training can significantly boost understanding and
enhance your program. Surprisingly, while lubrication, on the surface,
may appear quite intuitive in nature, it is perhaps the least understood
area of maintenance. Investing in a basic lubrication-training course
for all maintainers and operators will greatly facilitate and enhance
understanding of GLPs, in harsh environments and elsewhere. MT
