The dirty way of contamination

The dirty path of contamination

"The dirty path of contamination" refers to the route through which contaminants enter and spread within a system or environment. In this context, it highlights the various stages at which lubricants can become contaminated, from the moment they are received at the storage facility to when they are in use within the machinery.

Organisations that excel in managing their lubrication activities recognise the potential sources of contamination and take proactive measures to mitigate them. This understanding helps them maintain the cleanliness and effectiveness of the lubricants, thereby enhancing the reliability and longevity of their equipment.
