When you have multiple lubricants in a factory with hundreds or even thousands of lubrication points, mistakes will happen. Introducing the wrong lubricant into an application leads to unplanned downtime and costly repairs. Lubricant cross-contamination has been identified as one of the root causes affecting asset reliability. Proper lubricant identification is one way to help solve the problem. This proactive approach creates a visual, color-coded “chain of custody” starting in the lubricant storage room, making its way to the individual lubricant points found on the equipment, and reducing human error.
Lubrication Engineers can help you identify all lubrication points and then create a comprehensive approach for applying the correct lubricant identification to each point. With color-coded, informational ID tags and labels, operators will be able to reliably perform their work – time after time – without accidentally introducing errors into the system.
