38 | July - August 2017 | NOW ON MACHINERYLUBRICATION.COM Analyzing Wear Debris in Engine Oils As any machine operates, it is bound to produce a set amount of wear debris. How this wear debris is generated will be dependent on many factors, including the lubricant being used, the operating condition of the machine and the clean - liness of the fluid. Understand how to determine the location of wear and what an increasing wear rate indicates by reading this article on the ML site. 3 Reasons Why Oil Analysis Programs Fail An oil analysis program can offer a huge return on your investment. It also can easily fail to provide those returns if not managed properly. Access this 2-minute, 57-second video to find out how to avoid three of the most common reasons why oil analysis programs fail. How to Identify Proper Gear Oil Viscosity Viscosity affects the frictional heat that is gener- ated in all rotating equip- ment due to both metal-to- metal contact and the oil's internal fric- tion. It also governs the sealing effect of oils and the rate of oil consumption. Check out this article on the ML site to discover how to identify the proper viscosity for a synthetic gear oil as well as its possible applications and recommended laboratory tests. Advice for Lubricating Wire Ropes Wire ropes and cables are used in a number of different applications, but they can be difficult to lubricate. Access this 1-minute, 30-second video to hear about two important factors you should consider when selecting a lubricant for these unique components in order to reduce friction and prevent rust and corrosion. Monitoring Oil Degradation in Gas Engines Oils can break down in a variety of ways. One of the most prevalent ways is the degradation of the base oil. Read this article on the ML site to learn the most widespread form of degradation, as well as how you can ensure that you are changing the oil on time before it goes bad or excessive wear occurs inside an engine. is the place to turn for white papers on a host of lubrication-related topics.
