There are far more elements to successful lubrication than simply the right lubricant. In the SKF webinar in May, SKF specialist Markus Boose discussed common challenges surrounding lubrication, explained how to develop an approach that overcomes them, and put forward the benefits that follow. The webinar provided advice on lubrication technologies available on the market, and how to implement them as part of a lubrication program that aligns with your specific requirements.
Lubrication in even greater detail
If you would like more detailed information on lubrication, the SKF expert paper provides in-depth material on the subject—including how our experts calculated the figures used in the webinar.
Download the expert paper to learn more on key points such as:
- Finding the right solutions and strategy for your fleet: Not all fleets are the same, and not all applications require the same lubrication system. This paper offers advice to help operators create an optimal lubrication program that is specific to their equipment.
- Identifying which system is the most cost-efficient for you: Depending on crew workload, applications, or operating conditions, using automated technology could accelerate procedures and boost cost-efficiency—but it might not be necessary for all fleets. To help operators make the best decision, the expert paper compares the main approaches to lubrication (manual, single-point, and automatic lubrication) on factors such as ROI.
- Making sure your strategy covers all bases: There are many important considerations to take into account when creating a successful lubrication program, environmental regulations, storage, and crew training to name a few. Get to know the key factors of lubrication management in the SKF expert paper.
