Lubrication Management

 

A lubrication management program is an essential element of a reliability program, often bringing positive results in a relatively short time frame. It is, however, an on-going and often time consuming series of tasks that is greatly benefited by software to help manage all the details.

The central concept of a total lubrication management program is to track ALL your lubricated assets and keep them operating effectively. MAINTelligence automates and manages all lubrication management functions.

Lubrication Audit
MAINTelligence maintains records of lubricant application for all assets within the organization. Match lubricants to assets, taking into account the load and usage of the asset in the plant.

Lubrication Application Schedule
Plan and schedule the deployment of lubricants (greases and oils) to your machinery.  Use the MAINTelligence scheduler to create and manage daily/weekly/monthly lubrication routes.  Keep track of which assets are receiving the correct lubricant on the schedule, and pinpoint those assets who are not getting lubricated according to the schedule.

Lubrication application reports can be created using the MAINTelligence report editor to meet the specific needs of the lubrication program for the plant.

Lubrication application rounds can be managed using both paper forms or using the InspectCE handheld.  Lubrication management can be combined with asset inspections into single routes, allowing for boith lubrication and inspection at the same time.

Lubrication Logistics
MAINTelligence offers tools for lubricant storage and stock level management.  The MAINTelligence Parts Manager has the capacity to store lubrication specification information  (viscosity,  pour point,  SAE number, etc.).  Lubricants can be stored in one unit (barrels, cans, etc.) and distributed in another unit such as ounces or grease shots.  The amount of lubrication added to a particular asset or reservoir  can be tracked, and alarms raised if lubricant consumption is above a pre-defined level.
