Oil condition monitoring is universally accepted as a vital part of a preventative maintenance programme, but what about grease?
Consider this: Four out of five bearings are grease lubricated, yet somehow, analysis of the condition of the grease is often overlooked. By its very nature, grease presents sampling issues not present with lubricating oil, so despite the added inconvenience of sampling, the inconvenient truth is your PM programme needs this. Through routine sampling and analysis, we trend your sample data to highlight potential faults before they become major issue, and subsequently, a major headache.
Don’t starve your grease-lubricated machines of an effective condition monitoring program. Monition offer a series of test-slates to better understand the condition, chemistry and wear particles present in in-service greases.
