Abstract

When lubrication control takes its place with other maintenance methods, it provides additional means for attaining the ultimate goal of satisfactory, economical performance and maximum service from the equipment. It further offers engineers an aid in extending the useful life of the oil while materially reducing the cost of major overhauls with loss of operating time. In this article, the author urges the greater use of on‐the‐job tests of lubricating oils by maintenance staffs themselves, who are capable of interpretating the results and utilizing them to forestall mechanical troubles.
