If you are not controlling contamination of your lubricants, then you cannot achieve the maximum service life of your rotating machinery or your lubricants. Using lots of 3D animations and animated illustrations, this presentation will focus on gearbox lubrication, explaining why contamination reduces the life of the gears and bearings (and the oil itself), how much the service life is reduced, how to reduce contamination, and how to remove unavoidable (and avoidable) contaminants.
Reliability is often used by plants to define future improvement efforts and set expectations for employees and managers. Understanding how it's defined and how to measure it can often be confusing to your organization.
