Supported by:

27 November 2018


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.

Learning outcomes:

  • Regulatory requirements
  • Understanding the properties of a quality lubricant
  • How, when and why to apply lubricants
  • Benefits of a controlled lubrication / reliability programme
  • Benefits of conditional monitoring
  • How to improve the reliability and reduce the downtime of equipment and assets
