A five star lubrication management standard is an ideal that resources companies strive for. No matter which lube management practices are in place, substantial improvements can be made in reasonable and cost-effective increments.
A lube room with correct lubrication management practices is always the first port of call when implementing an improvement program. Items such as good storage, colour labelling, dispensing and filtration practices will ultimately result in lower machinery downtime and related costs.
Converting site lubrication practices towards a five star rating should begin with specialised staff training. Training and awareness of personnel is one of the major requirements when commencing any lubrication management program. Queensland-based company Clean Lube Solutions runs on and off-site basic to advanced lubrication awareness courses throughout Australia and overseas including hands on lubrication monitoring basics; contamination control fundamentals, oil condition monitoring basics and patch test training.
A site evaluation or audit conducted at a facility will benefit in order to ascertain and report on current cleanliness practices and deficits. Clean Lube Solutions’ comprehensive report includes existing hydrocarbon management systems, oil, grease and parts storage, training and service programs, and provides an assessment rating and list of solutions towards industry best practice standards.
