Poor lubrication practices and maintenance costs attributed to friction and wear exceed $200 billion in the United States alone. Even more, 70-85% of all equipment breakdowns are self-induced, a direct result of the failure of existing maintenance and lubrication-related activities.
Technicians from our RelaDyne Reliability Services team guide and protect your facility and lubrication management team through sensitive lubrication issues to help optimize equipment reliability. Our technicians provide the years of expertise and know-how it takes to troubleshoot a facility’s lubrication system and optimize it for years of improved service.
Our team of lubrication engineers and technicians will coordinate all aspects of the services rendered every step of the way through completion and beyond.
What do Lubrication Engineers or Technicians do?
- Perform daily lubrication tasks, such as grease, lubricate, perform top-offs and oil changes, and document all actions to track completion rate
- Note all abnormalities in equipment during inspection – act as “eyes and ears” of the plant
- Record completion percentage of Project Manager’s work and track for KPI measurement
- Organize and maintain all lubricant storage facilities
- Write, review and update lubrication procedures
- Track and record lubricant inventories and consumption rates
- Pull Oil samples and perform basic oil analysis
- Tag and bar-code equipment and components and lubrication points
- Apply contamination control methods to all applications
