The first step in ensuring that the right lube ends up in the right machine, is that all lubricants in the storage area need to be clearly identified. The Best Practice is to start with a colour code for each different lubricant and this system is then used throughout the plant - storage, dispensing and the final fill point on the machine. Label Safe solutions range from simple adhesive labels through to solutions that include complete MSDS information.
Cross contamination of lubricants can be just as damaging as dirt and water. Match the transfer container label to the bulk storage label to eliminate the potential for cross contamination. Label Safe provides a complete range of labels for identifying dispensing equipment, from basic adhesive labels, to ones protected in oil resistant plastic pockets and mounted in coloured frames.
Getting the right lube into the right fill point (contamination free) is one of the simplist ways to reduce maintenance and operating costs, not to mention improving the equipment reliability. Matching the container label to the machine fill point is the final step. All made easy with the wide range of Lubrication identification labels from Label Safe. There are many possibilities available from fill point ID washers to custom made plastic cards.
