With spring coming, the rising temperatures create new challenges making it important to know the best practices and facts about grease usage for your equipment.
In extreme hot temperatures, a decrease in the lubricant viscosity can reduce the thickness of the lubricant film rendering it less effective. As the weather grows hotter you should plan to apply lubricant more often and in greater amounts. Different lubricants are rated according to their heat resistance but don’t forget to factor in the additional heat of summer operation when choosing an appropriate product.
What can you do to properly maintain equipment and machines during hot seasons?
Preparing for warmer weather and rainy conditions can have a positive impact on productivity and safety. Increased machine usage will require cool down time. Rain and heat will affect the viscosity of lubrication requiring more frequent lubrication. Workers must stay safe when climbing machines in rainy conditions. Follow these practices for the best results on the job.
