Proper lubrication goes beyond choosing the correct lubricant; it includes keeping the lubricant free of contaminants. The solution? Modify equipment to remain sealed during all phases of normal operation-including routine maintenance, such as level checks and oil changes.
This can be easily achieved by retrofitting the drain and fill/breather ports with easy-to-install modification kits that permit multiple access points to the equipment without opening the sump to the environment. Modifications should be designed in a way to help you:
• Top off oil; • Check oil level; • Take oil samples; • Drain/fill oil; • Kidney loop oil; • All while excluding contaminants
