Can You Afford All the Oil and Grease You Use?
Can You Afford All the Oil and Grease You Use?
One of the most common lubrication mistakes that plants around the world make every day is disregarding the costly impact of changing oil too frequently and over-greasing. When oil changes are optimized to the right intervals (or you find a way to stop changing oil altogether), many plants find that equipment reliability increases.

Detecting and Managing Hydraulic System Leakage
Detecting and Managing Hydraulic System Leakage
It is unfortunate that many leaks identified in hydraulic systems are left to drip away the profits of a company. And it is not just the cost of the hydraulic oil itself—profits are also lost to unnecessary energy consumption, reduced equipment performance and other problems.

Better Than a Bull's-eye!
Better Than a Bull's-eye!
Most bull’s-eye level gauges confirm oil volume but don’t identify root causes and symptoms of machine failure. Luneta’s Condition Monitoring Pod™ allows early detection of abnormal machine and lubricant health conditions.

What is Rheology and How Does It Relate to Industrial Lubricants?
What is Rheology and How Does It Relate to Industrial Lubricants?
Industrial lubricants work under extreme operating conditions and stress that can severely affect their structure, behavior, and performance—anticipating this is critical for appropriate lubricant selection. In this article, Interlub provides a brief introduction to the field of rheology, the science that studies how fluids move under different circumstances.

Lube Tip
"I just saw a substantial increase in copper on one of my oil analysis reports. How can I determine where this copper came from (cooler core, bearing cage, worm gears)?"
Trying to effectively interpret oil analysis data without an intimate knowledge of a machine's internal design and operating conditions is fraught with danger. Most machines are highly complex, consisting of exotic metallurgy and intricate mechanisms. The numerous frictional and sealing surfaces usually employ varying contact dynamics and loads, all sharing a common lubricant.
Failing to gain knowledge about these many internal machine details as a reference base for use in interpreting oil analysis data may lead to nothing but wild guesswork and confusion. A good approach is to build a binder with index tabs for each  machine type. Include in this binder photocopied pages from the service and operation manuals plus other accumulated information. The following are examples of data and information to include:
 * Identify types of bearings in use and their metallurgy.
 * Identify input and output shaft speeds/torques.
  * Identify types of gears in use, speeds and loads. Determine gear metal hardness, surface treatments, alloying metals.
 * Locate and identify all other frictional surfaces, such as cams, pistons, bushings, swashplates, etc. Determine metallurgy of surface treatments.
 * Locate and identify coolers, heat exchangers and type of fluids used.
 * Obtain fluid flow circuit diagrams/schematics.
 * Locate and determine the types of seals in use, both external and internal.
 * Identify possible contacts with process chemical types. Obtain MSDS sheets for these chemicals.
 * Record lubricant flow rates, lubricant bulk oil temperatures, bearing drain and inlet temperatures, and oil pressures.
 * Record detailed lubricant specification and compartment capacity.
 * Record filter performance specification and location."
