Lubrication Program Management
Jeremy Wright – Vice President of Technical Services, Noria Corporation
Contamination may be your machine’s worst enemy. Most machine failures are lubricant-related, and contamination is the No. 1 reason lubricants are compromised. This presentation will describe the different types of contaminants that are harmful to machine surfaces and lubricant chemistry, and will outline effective control strategies to build machine reliability. Jeremy Wright will provide strategies that you can implement immediately to control contamination and double the life of the critical equipment in your plant. Specific topics covered include how a machine’s lifespan corresponds to the oil’s cleanliness and dryness, how heat affects the life of the oil and the machine, and how to identify and remove water contamination.
