Transportation/Fleets

Transportation/Fleets For any fleet operator, equipment performance is directly connected to the bottom line. That means keeping vehicles on the road instead of in the shop. Pulling a truck off the road to change a lubricant that does not need to be changed is downtime that cuts into the bottom line in the same exactContinue reading “Transportation/Fleets”

Food Processing

FOOD-PROCESSING FACTOIDLower ISO codes lead to a direct reduction in bacteria growth in gearboxes and other lubricant sumps in Food Processing plants. To learn more about how bacteria forms in gearboxes and learn about strategies for eliminating it, read this whitepaper.  Food Processing Food processors have a number of unique requirements when it comes toContinue reading “Food Processing”

Precision Lubricants

Elite Lubrication Specialties chooses the lubricants best suited for each individual application. Many times that may be a turbine oil from one lubricant provider and a grease from another. All sourced and stocked via Elite to make the MRO process easier, but not limiting performance by locking in a single supplier. Many times a corporateContinue reading “Precision Lubricants”

Predictive Maintenance

Maintenance 4.0An industry slang term for the emerging trend of predictive maintenance, which uses the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and artificial intelligence (AI) to predict when equipment will require corrective maintenance so it can leverage Overall Equipment effectiveness (OEE) and avoid breakdowns. Predictive Maintenance Industry 4.0 has arrived, and with it, there’s a newContinue reading “Predictive Maintenance”

Preventive Maintenance

Reactive maintenanceRepairs to equipment that is already broken down with a focus on restoring equipment to its normal operating condition. Known as “breakdown maintenance.” Preventive Maintenance Lubrication-related equipment failures happen every single day, costing an estimated $1 trillion a year in reactive maintenance, downtime and lost productivity in the United States. Proper preventive maintenance canContinue reading “Preventive Maintenance”
