Is your lube room helping or hurting reliability?

Updating your lubrication storage area (or “lube room”) is a cost-effective way to help your lubricants perform better and last longer. If your lubricants are not protected in storage, they will not perform well in your machines.

Lubricants that live in a dirty environment with frequent changes in temperature and moisture will become contaminated and degrade much faster, increasing wear and leading to expensive equipment failures—not to mention more frequent oil changes.

Hardware creates culture change at Argos Newberry

The Argos Cement Plant in Newberry, Florida, had a directive from their corporate team to improve lubrication procedures and hardware but needed help getting started.

After receiving Noria training and an Ascend Assessment, the plant was able to work with the Noria team to identify better lubricant handling options, more effective greasing techniques and opportunities for better contaminant exclusion and removal.

Their success has encouraged the Argos team to implement similar improvements in their other plants as well.
