Benefits of Lubricant Consolidation

Share:
Lubricant consolidation can reduce costs for a business, as well as minimize the risk of cross-contamination or misapplication.

What is lubricant consolidation and what are the benefits?

Lubricant consolidation is a process that optimizes your lubricant inventory by consolidating similarly classified products. 

Some of the benefits include:

  • Reducing inventory quantities
  • Reduce costs
  • Minimize the risk of cross-contamination or misapplication
  • Simplify storage and handling

How does a lubricant consolidation audit work?

A lubrication specialist audits your operations and provides recommendations on how to consolidate products based on performance requirements and environment.  This process prevents duplication of equivalent products and reduces costs by recommendations of larger package sizes or bulk storage and handling. 

Information your lubricant specialist will need from you:

  • Equipment list
  • Identify the most critical pieces of equipment
  • What equipment is currently under warranty?
  • What oils and greases are you currently using?
  • Storage
    • How are lubricants stored at your facility?
    • What is your storage capacity? 
    • Are you interested in or able to expand your storage capacity?
  • Is the lubrication program coordinated by a central person or group?
  • Are automatic grease lubricators used?
  • Are there any environmental regulations governing lubricants?
