Reliability Centred Lubrication in Action Whilst completing scheduled Acoustic Emission Readings of all Oven Extract Fan Bearings one set of DE and NDE Bearings flagged up an unusual reading. Each Extract Fan is scheduled for monthly Distress readings to enable Reliability On-Condition Lubrication. All Fans usually display a Distress (DST) reading of between 4-12 and a dB reading of 35-45. When the DST reading rises above 9-10 the bearings are lubricated. However, on reading one...

Maintenance & Operations KPIs such as MTBF, MTTR and OEE are good measures of Asset Performance and Maintenance Efficiency. But rarely do we see organisations with a good handle on the key drivers of effective and efficient lubrication. Poor lubrication accounts for >60% of bearing failuresGlobal lubricant waste costs industry >$40m per yearModern lubricants can far exceed commonly accepted norms for oil changes.BUT…most CMMS’ do not effectively track lubrication related machine condition, waste or lubricant...

Automatic Lubrication Systems / Centralised Lubrication Systems are designed to apply lubricant in precise, metered amounts over short, frequent time intervals. Labour constraints and/or the physical location of lubricating points on a machine can make it difficult to manually lubricate the points. This, combined with the convenience and confidence of automated systems, makes such systems a great choice for maintenance and reliability professionals. Set up and maintained correctly, machines can be lubricated at the right...

Looking at the results of all the site lubrication audits we completed in recent years, we can conclude that they are clearly not as obvious or easy to achieve as we may hope! The core problems were around lack of ownership and know-how, exaggerated by insufficient lubrication management information/tools to do the job. Top 5 Challenges Affecting 5 Rights Achievement: Nobody on site is really responsible for the lubrication program and/or has had any formal...

Vibration Monitoring and Analysis has evolved rapidly over the last 10 years as the cost of technology reduces and performance increases.  A wide-rage of technology exists today that reduces the barriers to vibration data collection and remote/automated analysis. We are experiencing increased interest in condition monitoring solutions that can be deployed quickly, efficiently and effectively. The days of expensive and complex data collectors, wired accelerometers and large annual software fees are moving towards wireless accelerometers...
