Often Overlooked, Lubricants Can Help Lower Energy Consumption

Stating the fact that better lubrication can lead to dramatic energy savings and an improved bottom line, this paper outlines how manufacturing plants can use lubrication reliability best practices to reduce their energy consumption, emissions and operating costs. It lists the types and sources of energy available, illustrating how some usable energy is lost during conversions from one form of energy to another. Basics of lubricant formulations are presented in the form of a table, explaining the complexity of lubricant formulations. Describing ways of measuring energy savings that can be realized by choosing the right lubrication for a particular application, the paper highlights the benefits of finding a lubrication partner that can help develop a comprehensive lubrication reliability program that includes lubricant selection, protection, and maintenance.
