Choose the right lubricants for your machine to optimise performance

By Corrib Oil | 15th March 2023

Lubricants are used in the agricultural sector, by transport companies, and in heavy industry to maintain machinery. The goal is to reduce friction between moving parts, reduce wear and tear, and prevent corrosion. When the right lubricant is used, it can extend the lifespan of machinery and improve overall performance.


One of the primary benefits of using the correct lubricants is the reduction of maintenance costs. Proper lubrication can significantly reduce the amount of wear and tear on machinery. It operates more efficiently and with less resistance, which can result in increased productivity and reduced energy consumption. This can improve performance and reliability, extend the lifespan of the machinery and reduce the frequency of repairs. The cost savings from reduced maintenance can be substantial.


By choosing the right lubricants and following proper lubrication procedures, companies can reduce the risk of equipment failure, increase efficiency, and extend the lifespan of their machinery. With the right lubrication program in place, companies can improve their bottom line while ensuring their machinery operates safely and reliably.
