It is a simple fact, better lubrication can lead to dramatic energy savings and an improved bottom line. This ought to interest any plant manager who is looking for ways to reduce operating costs, and is especially significant at a time when stricter government regulations are in direct contradiction to reducing costs. Lubrication reliability is the solution.

Today, there are various reasons to reduce energy consumption, such as conserving natural resources, reducing emissions and improving profitability. Governments and corporate management alike are looking for ways to reduce energy consumption.

Indirect energy use, more commonly called industrial use, is greater in all regions of the world than direct or personal use. That makes industry the largest consumer of energy and, therefore, the greatest source of potential reductions. Energy use can be measured through production output, temperature changes and electrical consumption.

It is possible to make dramatic gains in energy efficiency by reducing friction, and one of the best ways to do that is to employ good lubrication practices, including the use of high-performance lubricants and the adoption of lubrication reliability best practices. The key to success is finding a lubricant company that not only can provide the right high-performance lubricants for the applications but also can recommend reliability solutions that will further reduce friction and maximize the efficiency of equipment.
