Asset Maintenance Masterclass: Improving reliability and reducing downtime
Lubrication is vital for optimal operation of food processing equipment – any failures can cause premature, costly system breakdowns. This webinar, led by Petro-Canada Lubricants and AVT Reliability, explored how to select a high-quality lubricant and implement an effective maintenance strategy to ensure assets remain fit for purpose.
Improving asset reliability and reducing downtime, as well as reducing waste and improving health and safety conditions, correctly implementing a conditional maintenance strategy can deliver real cost savings.
