How Lubricants Help Meet Your Plant Needs

OEMs Know Which High-Quality Oils and Greases Offer Long-Term Performance and Superior Value 

When lubricants don't perform as expected, plant operations lose time with more frequent re-lubrication, equipment breaks, and profits dip. A good lubrication program can reduce downtime and control maintenance costs — which drives performance and increases profitability.

While lubricants typically comprise less than one percent of a plant's operating cost, they can directly influence more than half of the total maintenance cost.

It's vital for design engineers, plant operators, maintenance personnel, and lubricant specialists to understand the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) specifications. Receiving guidance about the right lubricant from the OEM ensures that the warranty won't be voided should equipment break while still under warranty.
