Introduction to Reliability-Centered Lubrication
One often overlooked item in a reliability-centered maintenance strategy is reliability-centered lubrication (RCL).
Reliability-centered lubrication requires a different mindset to achieve optimal results from a reliability-centered maintenance strategy. The old-school, low-qualified technicians with minimum technical work on the lubrication design, planning, and execution are gone. Now, lubrication precision, high-quality training, and better lubricant application technologies are enhancing the performance expectations of manufacturing and production lines.
