Lubricants are the lifeblood of machines. They are critical for keeping assets healthy and productive. And much like a blood test, analyzing lubricants can alert us to potentially life-threatening problems before it's too late.

If improving reliability or lowering maintenance costs is your goal, it pays to look at your lubricants and lubrication practices carefully and holistically. Are lubrication staff properly trained? Are lubricants kept clean enough? Are oil change or regrease intervals set properly? Are recent machine failures related to lubrication?

Answering these questions (and more) is the beginning of Lubrication Program Development (LPD). Noria experts use this holistic, three-phase process to help customers identify gaps in their lubrication programs and make a prioritized plan for improvements.

You can build a lubrication program that:

  • Reduces downtime
  • Promotes reliability culture
  • Minimizes costs
  • Establishes KPIs to measure progress
  • Is streamlined for efficiency
  • Delivers significant ROI

Your lubrication program can be a profit-generator instead of a cost-center. Let us show you how.
