It’s Time to add Grease Analysis to the Reliability Toolbox
The practice of lubricant analysis is changing. While oil analysis has been effective for many years, grease analysis has lagged behind due to the challenges in obtaining accurate samples and establishing reliable methods. However, research has led to new developments and success stories in multiple industries worldwide. This paper introduces the latest methods, standards and guidelines to help organizations operating critical grease-lubricated equipment to integrate grease sampling and analysis technologies into their condition-based maintenance programs.
