Contamination Control- Keep It Simple And Clean

With the high rise in the cost of oil and the desire by companies to minimize waste and usage, there is a stronger urge of contagion control. Most of the companies are seeking compelling business care to offer prolonged equipment life for the environmental and economical reason and for controlling contamination of their lubricants. The control is done from the moment oil enters the facility until the time it leaves. Maintaining a clean fuel is essential to any company since it helps to keep their equipment running effectively. However, contamination is often a significantly overlooked factor that’s behind diminishing of lubricant life and premature machinery death.

Chief sources of Lubricant Contamination

Dirt: If the environment is contaminated then oil and lubricant became dirty and compromised with particulate contamination. Once it gets inside the operating system, it accelerates to create new contaminants which damage the vital components and also acts the catalyst of oxidation degrading the lubricants further.

Water: when the atmosphere is rainy and humid or experiencing frequents high-temperature fluctuations it causes the oil to become moisture laden hence compromising the quality of lubricant. Most of the times, the various activities of plant wash down creates the induction conditions leading to moisture corrosion and ingression.

Best and easiest way to exclude contaminants

The best way to prevent your oil business from being exposed to contaminants is to avoid exposing your lube. You need to secure reliable and stable practices like reducing downtime, less usage of oil and practicing of lower repairs on your plant frequently and adhere to strict cleaning validation.

Tips for Preventing Contamination

To have appropriate dispensing station and dust extraction system

  • Test each material separately to avoid cross-contamination
  • Take the samples into a well-validated room with the best air control structure to prevent airflow contamination.
  • Use the specific tool for the designed product
  • Ensure you maintain proper equipment cleaning to avert biological contamination
  • Ensure to have a tap of your cleaning validation
  • Check your equipment and regularly for tear and wear to prevent integrity compromise
  • Always have proper and highly designed airflow system to avoid experiencing airflow contamination.
  • Dispose of all used samples
  • Regularly monitor your water to check out microbial system

The best of keeping your premises free from contamination needs a regular check from experts, who inspect, clean and advice on various ways to practice contamination control
