IT is always advisable to keep a record of lubricants issued from the stores. Storekeepers frequently tend to issue them too often on demand and without check. While there are dangers in stinting lubricants, the issuing of definite amounts at specified time intervals does keep consumption under control and prevents waste. A control system of this kind is particularly advantageous where prime movers are concerned because any gradual increase in consumption will often indicate the growing need for an overhaul, whilst a sudden increase, which would immediately be noticed, would provide evidence of rapidly developing serious trouble.
