Myth: Investing in a best-in-class lubrication program will increase operating costs. Truth: Making the switch to synthetic lubricants or investing in technical services does require some upfront cost, but by investing in the right lubrication technologies and services, operators can actually save money in both the short- and long-term. Depending on the application, making a switch to a higher performing lubricant can increase equipment reliability and productivity, helping minimize unscheduled downtime. As mentioned earlier, services such as used oil analysis can also help operators better predict and remedy potential performance issues, further minimizing the risk of unscheduled downtime.
In fact, the performance of a lubricant can vary dramatically depending on the formulation. For example, consider synthetic lubricants. Sometimes, an application may not require the use of synthetic oil to deliver adequate protection, but operators should know that the quality of mineral oils also varies.

Depending on the additives used in the formulation, mineral oils can be designed to deliver enhanced extreme pressure protection or to better guard against contamination, to name a few examples. In short, operators should always assess operating conditions for their equipment and choose a lubricant designed to perform in that environment to best protect their equipment and enhance productivity.
Truth: While oil degradation can lead to equipment breakdown, it is more of a symptom of a more troublesome issue that is the true root cause of equipment failure.
Lubrication Fundamentals - Second Edition
As we explained when debunking the first myth, all oil is not the same. Using the wrong lubricant can accelerate lubricant degradation, ultimately leading to premature equipment failure.

The ever-increasing performance of the machines is accompanied by a growing number of highly specialized high-performance lubricants and functional fluids. Their correct selection, handling and care constantly presents new challenges to the technical staff of the oil companies, service providers and plant operators.
In two modules, we provide you with the necessary basic and practical knowledge to select lubricants for your application. You will learn to understand the application notes, specifications and technical data listed on the technical data sheets and can then apply them safely in practice.
The two seminar modules thus cover the basic knowledge of the largest and most important areas of mineral oil application technology. Like this presentation? Why not share! Lubrication ppt.

What Is Lubrication?
Synthetic Lubricants B a s e O i l Synthetic lubricants are man made lubricants using mineral oil or other raw materials as base fluid. Phosphate Easters Fire resistance fluid used in: power plant, mining and aircraft.
Polyalkylene Glycols Refrigeration compressor, H1 food grade etc. Silicones High temp fluid and lubricant contacting chemicals Properties What does it mean? When equipment performance demands exceed the capabilities of mineral oil.
