Thorough Assessment Delivers Detailed Plan of Action for Your Facility
A thorough assessment is an important first step for any organization wanting to start a lubrication reliability program or benchmark their current efforts. With our field experience and technical expertise, LE can help you understand your current lubrication practices and challenges, and determine what improvements can be made to improve your operational efficiency.
The goal of LE’s Xpert Equipment Reliability Assessment is to establish a baseline and identify specific equipment-level opportunities for improvement. It is a 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 – whether you require the entire operation to be analyzed or just a few pieces of critical equipment.
- Reduced downtime & costs
- Increased profits & employee morale
- Maximized operational efficiency
