In the previous post, we covered the applications of industrial-grade filters, like the ones offered by Micro Lube. In this post, we’ll review the different types of filters that are used for commercial and industrial purposes as well as the reasons for using them.
When we talk about oil changes for industrial machinery, there are two major ways of doing it. Either oil change is done following the interval-based approach or it is done on the basis of oil condition. This blog is going to talk about what a condition-based oil change is and in which conditions it's the most suitable.
For years, the manufacturers of planes, trains, vehicles, and consumer goods have frequently been dispensing oils onto various parts during the fabrication process. The modern large-scale industries incorporate oil dispensing systems to provide oil or grease to different elements during assembly regularly to keep them lubricated.
You change your oil not because you want to, but because you have to do it, or else you run the risk of premature wear on your components. You need more than a standard oil and filter to expand the life of the machinery and the time between oil changes.
When it comes to lubricants used in vehicles, a number of questions arise regarding what type of oil we should use in our cars, in this case, the simplest answer is to follow the manufacturers’ recommendations and use those oils that the brand has recommended for each car make. As well as making sure you change the oil in the periods recommended by the manufacturer.
Machines that use lubrication in their process and functions, cannot survive if their oil filters are not changed at the right time. A car engine is a perfect example here, however, there are many other machines that work under the same principle.
Industrial lubricant maintenance and cleanliness is important because it directly impacts the life of equipment and efficiency of the manufacturing operations. A portable offline oil filtration system serves several purposes.
Dr. Ernest Rabinowicz of MIT observed that up to 70% of ‘loss of usefulness’ and component replacement is due to surface degradation. In lubricating and hydraulic systems, almost half of all part replacements arise due to mechanical wear while up to 20% result from corrosion.
Filtration is the process of removing or separating suspended solid particles from a fluid. In other instances, filtration may be used for removing undesirable fluids from other liquids.
Determining the life of industrial lubricants is a complicated subject that involves several factors. Can you use oil indefinitely as long as you clean it? How often should you change the oil to keep your equipment in good working condition while optimizing your maintenance budget?
