Programs targeted at the ground level
TLR Services has a logical systematic approach for the development of the lubrication programs to improve the application of lubricants. Utilising simple philosophies we develop and procure the management systems to drive the programs to achieve world’s best practice standards. These programs target activities at the ground level of the organisation to improve the efficiency of the activities and dictate the reliability of the equipment.
Lubricant storage & Handling solutions
Correct lubricant storage and handling practices is the single most important factor in a successful lubrication program. If handling practices are less than satisfactory the potential for contamination ingress is increased; thus shortening equipment life. Developed systems and solutions will support maintenance through a managed approach for the distribution of lubricants. This will provide ongoing savings through the reduction in maintenance, labour costs, consumable products, and improve production capacity.
Documentation & Associated systems
Routine lubrication schedules provide the basis for maintaining equipment in optimum condition to perform at maximum capacity during peak periods. Routine lubrication activities conducted in a systematic and efficient manner will support the maintenance department, through the efficient use of resources and improved equipment reliability. The documentation utilised to conduct lubrication routines should be clear, concise and easily maintainable. Dedicated trained personnel responsible for plant lubrication will maintain a single point of focus to deliver the programs to the highest standard.
Condition monitoring programs
Condition monitoring provides early warning mechanisms to monitor equipment for potential unscheduled failures that may occur. Results obtained are recorded, creating trends that can be monitored for variations from normal. This information allows maintenance workflow to be managed and planned during low production periods and assist with resourcing issues. There are many tools available to deliver cost effective condition based analysis, such as oil analysis, vibration analysis and thermography just to name a few.
Continuous improvement programs
Continuous improvement programs are the core management and continuous improvement programs behind the lubrication activities conducted within the organisation. They combine smaller, yet vital areas to be developed to elevate the current practices and procedures to comply with world’s best practices. Proficiency programs include the development of areas such as: staff management, employee accountability systems, inventory, waste management and training. These programs also include technical support, and equipment programs to improve the application of lubricants and operating conditions that affect the quality of lubricants.
