Reliability Centered Lubrication (RCL) is a logical way of identifying the critical equipment for implementing condition monitoring and preventive maintenance.

RCL program design process

An RCL Program optimizes lubrication maintenance by:

  • Designing the applied tasks based on engineered applications specific to component attributes and operational and environmental considerations.
  • Standardizing component modifications to ease the burden of completing basic lubrication tasks.
  • Maximizing the required task intervals for a component.
  • Optimizing the number of correct lubricants on site.
  • Establishing component health based on observational and trended data.
