  1. Lubrication – Getting it Right Nick Thomas North Sea & Caspian Sales Manager 11 February 2004 at 1500

  2. Agenda • Lubrication – Getting it Right • Cultural Change can be the answer • Individual Elements • Product Selection • Contaminant Exclusion & Removal • Oil Condition Monitoring • Storage & Handling • Awareness, Education, Training & Skills Management • Evaluation of Programme

  3. Lubrication – Getting it Right • The Prize of imbedding best in class lubrication practices • Increased Reliability • Reduced Downtime • Maximise Value • Increased Profits

  4. Critical Steps to Success • Identify Opportunities for improvement • Action Plan developed • Implement changes identified • Culture transformation • Action Plan implemented (12,24,36 months or more) • Plan for continuous improvement

  5. Plan, Design & Implement (outline) • Phase 1 - Plan • Training a critical component • Awareness Training for all stakeholders • What, why & when • Open forum discussion groups • Discuss specific roles of group, departments • Educating management • Supervision of implementation (team leaders) • Upper management (financial support) • Assess Maintenance Management system • New programme needs to complement

  6. Plan, Design & Implement (outline) • Phase 2 – Design • Design • Lubrication PMs, Contamination Control, Oil Analysis, Lube-Handling, Lubrication Selection • Installation • Hardware, equipment modifications • Documentation • Incorporate best practice in parallel with installation • Baseline for continuous improvement • Training/Coaching • Ideas at awareness become embedded • Team members start to take ownership

  7. Plan, Design & Roll Out (outline) • Phase 3 – Roll Out • New procedures within MMS completed and tested • Formal & on-the-job training for new procedures • Evaluation

  8. Lubrication PMs • Audit of lubrication PMs • Missing • Not Required • Changed to reflect best practice

  9. Contamination Control • Contamination affects machine wear and lubrication degradation rates • Build in reliability • Extended life • Contamination Control Programme • Optimise targets • Method to suit application

  10. Oil Analysis & Inspection Systems (OCM) • Provides • Check that contamination control & lubrication management efforts are effective • Advance warning enabling targeted response to conditions that compromise reliability • Are you Maximising value?

  11. Handling & Storage • Consider lubricants as a working component in mechanical systems just like a bearing, valves. • Lubricant Packaging • Know consumption Rates • Maintain Safety stock • How much space available • Condition of storage facility • Recommended Storage Life • Factors that impact

  12. Handling & Storage • Lubricant Storage • Outdoor Storage • Opened Containers • Proper Labelling • Lubrication Identification Equipment • Re-suspending additives • New Oil Cleanliness • The Storeroom

  13. Lubrication Selection • OEM Specification • Identified Lubrication Solution • Rationalisation

  14. Value of Effective training • Cost of an Untrained Workforce • Expensive & Wasteful Oil Analysis • Undetected Faults & Failures • High Cost of Lubrication • Poorly specified Equipment parts • High labour costs • High Cost of Reactive Maintenance • Costly Mistakes that lead to Premature Failure • High Machine Energy Consumption

  15. Summarise • Investing Time & Capital in Best in Class Lubricants Management will improve reliability & reduce downtime medium to longer term. • No quick fix • Cohesive Plan needed for a change in long term approach

  16. Questions & Answers
