The best way to protect your equipment is to apply the right lubricant at the right time and in the right quantities. This is the philosophy at Lubrication Engineers (LE) South Africa. But, says Callum Ford, national marketing manager, there is one more principal worth bearing in mind: a good lubricant can become a great lubricant with the right additive.

Lubrication is critical to prolonging the life of bearings which in turn is fundamental to increased uptime and production and reduced operational costs. “The importance of accurate lubrication cannot be overemphasised as both over- and under-lubrication can reduce bearing lifetime,” states Eddie Martens, SKF product manager, MaPro.
