Lubricated Equipment Audit
An Lubricated Equipment Audit is performed to obtain information about the equipment including its internal design, the system design, and the present operating and environmental conditions. The lubricant is part of the design criteria of equipment and it is essential for the programs overall effectiveness to understand the type, quantity, and re-lubrication frequency. This information is to be used as a reference to set equipment targets and limits while also supplying direction for future maintenance activities.
The Lubricated Equipment Audit includes on- and of-site work to perform the interviews, review OEM documents, walk down the component and prepare the final deliverable. The deliverable will include:
- Identify equipment (OEM) lubricant requirements and specifications.
- Provide an Excel spreadsheet or Access database outlining recommended equipment lubrication requirements (lubricant type, quantities and re-lubrication frequency)
- Provide an Excel spreadsheet outlining equipment currently using the incorrect lubricant and recommendations for corrections.
- Provide a Word Document of a Standard Lubrication Procedure (SLP) or Work Task Outline (WTO) for each piece of audited equipment (fee based option)
A typical equipment audit results in a complete list of a plant’s oil and grease lubricated equipment with the documented guidelines to provide the right product, in the right location, in the right amount, at the right time and in the right condition.
