Root causes of lubricant degradation and how to prevent it from harming your machines
Oil analysis is a primary way to determine lubrication breakdown, a sign of potential premature failure in critical and other assets. Lubricant degradation occurs in six ways—oxidation, thermal degradation, micro dieseling, electrostatic spark discharge, additive depletion, and contamination. Expert Sanya Mathura, founder of Trinidad-based Strategic Reliability Solutions, Ltd., introduces the basic concepts of lubrication, and discusses how a lubricant can degrade and ways each situation can be handled to avoid asset decline and demise. Mathura’s company has solved lubrication problems and provided training in the automotive, industrial, marine, construction, and transportation sectors.
