Equifactor® Equipment Troubleshooting at the Reliable Plant 2009 Conference
Chris Vallee and I are currently attending the Reliable Plant 2009 Conference in Columbus, OH. This conference concentrates on machinery lubrication technologies, so you would expect that the lubrication vendors would be the most popular, right? Amazingly enough, we have had nearly 1/4 of all attendees stop by our booth to discuss equipment troubleshooting and root cause analysis! Everyone seems to understand that correctly lubricating your equipment takes more than just the best oil or grease. You also have to ensure that the human element is taken care of. When machinery problems arise, human error usually plays a starring role.
