5 Ways to Reduce Lubricant Spending
5 Ways to Reduce Lubricant Spending
Lubricant procurement is not the largest expenditure in a typical maintenance budget. However, it is viewed as a real, tangible expense that is frequently targeted for cost reduction. When it comes to lubricants, it is unwise to pretend to save money by “buying cheap.”

Hydraulic Pressure vs. Flow: Understanding the Difference
If I had to pick a single concept that keeps most parts changers from becoming troubleshooters, it would be the failure to understand the difference between pressure and flow. It is not uncommon to hear the terms used interchangeably, as though they are synonyms. They aren’t.

Lube Tip
Excessive bearing vibration can have the same effect as irregular regreasing of bearing contact surfaces. It typically causes the grease to be broken down into the oil and the thickener, that is, the oil separates from the thickener. 

It is good practice to select greases which are suitable for vibratory conditions (your local lubricant supplier can advise you of suitable products) and to lubricate the bearings at short intervals--perhaps as frequently as weekly depending on bearing size, speed and operating conditions.
