As you’re trying to manage lubricant inventory, make sure you’re getting the full use of those lubricants. Maybe what you have on hand is enough to last through the year, but contaminants can cut your lubricants’ life short. Contaminants will make your fluids ineffective and cause you to go through more than what you planned. Don’t underestimate the power of dirt, water and debris!
When you’re worried about lubricant supply, it’s hard to resist stockpiling and buying stuff you may not use. That’s why we want to make sure you’re following best practices for storing your lubricants.
Dirt, debris and water are threats to your lubricants. Contaminants are attracted to your lubricants. They’re always looking for an opening to enter the containers, mix with the fluids and set up residency in your equipment. Talk about a draining relationship!
As you look for ways to make your lubricants last longer, extending oil drains is an obvious place to start. However, you need to know how the oil is performing in the engine before you make changes. That’s why oil analysis is about to become your new best friend! It can tell you if fluids are being changed too soon (oh no!) or if fluids are being used too long (ugh, oxidation!).
Worried about managing your lubricant inventory with the current supply constraints? Oil analysis can help. You probably thought the first thing we’d say is extended oil drains, but that’s the next step. Start with oil analysis because you need to keep those engines protected as you go longer.
