Spotlight Service Series – Lubrication Management

Lubricant cleanliness and quality are often overlooked due to busy schedules.

Breaux Petroleum strives to bring you one step closer to zero lubrication-related failures with our lubrication management program and services.

Did you know? Between 60-80 percent of all mechanical failures are directly related to poor or improper lubrication practices. In a study by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, it was estimated that approximately $240 billion is lost annually (across U.S. industries) due to downtime and repairs to manufacturing equipment damaged by poor lubrication.

To assist with lubrication and reliability tasks—as well as identifying areas for improvement—we have a team of highly trained lubricant technicians and engineers on hand and available to you 24/7.

A key focus of our lube techs centers around lubricant storage and handling, including the set-up or evaluation of lube rooms. Proper sampling practices are also enforced, contamination is controlled, training is provided, and all practices are reviewed and improved continually.

Why use Breaux’s lubricant management team? Well, just to name a few reasons…

  • We have a dedicated team trained specifically in lubrication and best practices. This means you do not have to spend valuable time and resources focused on hiring and onboarding new employees.
  • Increase in Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF)
  • Reduced maintenance costs
  • Contamination control
  • 24/7, on-call team of MLTs and engineers with expert knowledge about lubrication and your operation

In addition to our team of lube techs, Breaux Petroleum also provides predictive maintenance (PdM) solutions. We offer PdM manager who will monitor your equipment to predict when it could fail and what steps can be taken to prevent it. Our PdM solutions can help you boost your equipment reliability even further.

With our lubrication management services, we can ensure that your operation has a complete maintenance strategy in place and stays proactive in extending the longevity of your rotating equipment.
