Our field-based lubrication engineers offer expert advice on sound lubrication practices, proper lubricant selection, equipment troubleshooting and other lubrication services that can help equipment run longer and more efficiently. Learn more about our Engineering Services here, or through your distributor.
There are several guiding principles to consider when creating a lubrication management program. You can find a detailed summary here.
Our used oil analysis program, Mobil Serv Lubricant Analysis, can track gradual changes in lubricant properties, contaminants and machinery component wear debris so that corrective action can be initiated in a controlled, planned and timely manner. You can read more about our used oil analysis program here.
In the most general form, the following formula can be used to determine your cost savings: Savings over time = (Costs associated with Lubricant A) – (Costs associated with Lubricant B). However, it is important to understand how to properly account for ALL of the costs of a lubricant.
Opportunities to reduce your impact on the environment through lubrication selection or practices include:
- Upgrade to a lubricant that provides extended lubricant life
- Switch to a more energy efficient lubricant
- Choose lubricants that can help minimize environmental impact
- Get the most out of a used oil analysis program, like Mobil Serv™ Lubricant Analysis
- Identify and fix leaks
- Implement a lubricant recycling program
OEE is measured as a ratio of output at your plant as compared to optimal output. It is measured by using the following formula: Overall Equipment Effectiveness = Availability x Performance x Quality. Find out more here.
