NOW ON MACHINERYLUBRICATION.COM Using Machine Criticality to Determine Inspection Frequency Once it has been concluded that a machine is critical enough to warrant the cost of monitoring its condition, the next step is to establish how of ten it should be inspected. A number of factors should be considered. Check out this article on the ML site to see how inspection frequency can be determined by measuring how close the machine is operating to alarm limits. The Truth About Additive Depletion In oil analysis, additive depletion is often used to estimate the remaining useful life of the oil. Laboratories can employ various methods to track the depletion of addi- tives. Access this 4-minute video to find out what the two main types of additive depletion are and why it is important for additives to deplete in order to save the oil, the machine or both. How Color Can Indicate Grease Quality The color of grease can provide some indication of its overall quality. As grease degrades and becomes contaminated, it usually will begin to darken. A shift in color could also be a sign that the grease has mixed with a different type of grease. Read this article on the ML site to understand while the color of grease may have the potential to provide quality information, it is only intended as a branding to indicate the type of grease. Identifying Water Contamination in Oil Water is known to be very damaging to oil and machines. It is often referred to as the second most destructive contaminant. Access this 1-minute, 51-second video to discover the different states of water in oil so you can recognize its presence and determine where it is coming from and how to remove it. Causes of Hydraulic Pump Failures The hydraulic pump is generally the most expensive component on a hydraulic system. It has the highest reliability risk, the highest contaminant sensitivity risk and the ability to cause chain-reaction failures. In other words, when the pump starts to fail, it starts to kick out debris into a debris field downstream of the pump. Learn which factors can cause a hydraulic pump failure by reading this article on the ML site. is the place to turn for white papers on a host of lubrication-related topics. Here's a sampling of the latest white papers that are currently available for download: • 5-Step Shaft Alignment Procedure • Contamination: The Vandal We Are Reluctant to Kick Out!?
