Optimal Re-greasing Frequency

12 Aug 2019, Posted by McPherson Oil in Industry Information, Oil Tips

What is the optimal re-greasing frequency and quantity for your equipment? Chris Decker, an ExxonMobil Grease Formulator, looks at the frequency of re-greasing equipment and what can result in overgreasing as well as undergreasing. Re-greasing intervals are based on a range of factors including equipment type; grease type; external contaminants; environmental and operating temperatures; and operating speeds and loads. Check out this video from our partners at ExxonMobil to see how re-greasing frequency can affect your equipment.

If you’re not sure how often you should re-grease your machines, check the manual or contact one of our lubrication specialists.
