What does your lubricant supplier do for you?
Lubrication reliability means keeping a lubricant dry, clean and contaminant-free throughout its expected operational life. A well-run lubrication reliability program that reduces contamination provides a wealth of cost savings to any company willing to invest in operational excellence. A lubrication reliability supplier should do more than take an order, deliver it and drive away.
With Lubrication Engineers as your supplier, you would not be alone. We can recommend and implement a cost-saving lubricant reliability program tailored to your operation, then provide ongoing consultation and support. Think of LE as your one-stop shop for lubrication reliability.
Recommendation, implementation and support
After learning about your operational goals and your specific equipment and lubrication needs, LE’s trained and certified field consultants can recommend a lubrication reliability program designed specifically for your operation. Whether your goals pertain to preventing contamination ingression, removing contaminants, enhancing your oil analysis program, increasing the safety and cleanliness of your lubricant storage area, or improving profitability through a combination of any or all the above, we will work closely with you to come up with the right program to help you realize those goals.
We can recommend a program based on your specific needs and goals, then help you with program implementation. This includes assistance with installation of hardware, proper oil sampling methods, and training of best practice techniques for your personnel. After your program is in place, we will continue to provide the highest level of support for your reliability efforts.
Your local LE consultant is the front-line contact for any questions or follow-up activity. Your consultant will conduct periodic review to measure and document program results. In addition, you will have direct contact with LE’s technical services staff for expert interpretation of oil analysis reports or to assist with difficult application questions. Ongoing management is critical to the long-term success of any lubrication reliability effort.
To achieve the best results, we offer two primary services for organizations wanting to improve their lubrication reliability program: Xpert Lubrication Benchmark Audit and Xpert Equipment Reliability Assessment. Both are steps toward achieving Lubrication Excellence.
Lubrication Benchmark Audit
1,000-Foot View & Scorecard
The Xpert Lubrication Benchmark Audit is a tool to help you establish where your organization is and what needs to happen next to achieve or maintain Lubrication Excellence. The audit provides scores in these nine audit categories: Lubrication Best Practices; Asset & Lubricant Identification; Storage & Handling; Oil Analysis & Sampling; Contamination Control; Filtration; Training, Skill Development & Certifications; Software, CMMS & EAM; and Safety & Accessibility.
The audit can be done at any time in your journey, whether you are just getting started or well on your way. It can be repeated periodically to allow you to track progress, make course adjustments, and focus on next steps.
Equipment Reliability Assessment
Detailed Investigation & Plan of Action
The goal of LE’s thorough Xpert Equipment Reliability Assessment is to establish a baseline and identify specific equipment-level opportunities for improvement. In contrast with the Benchmark Audit, which provides broad category scores, the Assessment is a thorough, detailed investigation of every lubricated asset and component in the facility, along with specific improvements recommended for each. The output will be a valuable blueprint for implementing or improving your lubrication reliability program. LE can customize the assessment to your needs.
