Always follow the machine and or equipment manufacturers recommended service intervals. However, if your unit is being operated under adverse conditions such as elevated temperatures or heavy loading – reduce lubricant drain frequency or use a higher quality lubricant.
If you are using a synthetic performing lubricant and a lubricant filtering program that includes lubricant analysis you can extend drain intervals.
The drain intervals are set once history is documented using a total lubricant plan.
KPL Filtration can assist in creating a tailored maintenance solution for your requirements, increasing the life of your lubricants and machinery and in turn decreasing the operational costs of maintenance shut downs.
