The longevity of component and fluid life can be greatly extended by controlling, within acceptable limits, root-cause aberrations. In fluid lubricated systems, the stability of a basic lubrication program and a vehicle for prediction of potential root-causes of failure must be considered and incorporated in the equipment design process. Condition monitoring and proactive maintenance are critical tools for achieving significant improvement in tribological performance of mechanical components and extended lubricant life.
