Energy Efficiency Through Precision Lubrication

Energy Efficiency Through Precision Lubrication

Plant Managers face the daunting task of finding ways to reduce cost and increase throughput.  Most plants could save huge amounts of money by improving their human energy use.

Mike Johnson’s Best Practices article shares the theory behind energy consumption through better lubrication practices, how to save money through improving human energy use, and a six-step lubricant evaluation process that reduces energy consumption.

Opportunities for energy improvment from the machine lubrication process are both obvious and obscure. The opportunities are explored in this article.

The top 3 lubricant consumption improvements are also reviewed.

Documenting energy improvements results is not difficult, but it does warrant careful planning and measurements.  Six factors to consider during the evaluation process are also shared in this article.
