Sitemap Lubrication can go a long way toward promoting long life in industrial machinery. The frequency with which your machine components will need to be lubricated largely depends on how often the machines are used. Some machines that are operated around the clock need to receive lubrication as often as once a week, so before investing in a piece of equipment, take care to confirm its ideal lubrication schedule. Additionally, machines that run at consistently high temperatures need to have their coolant changed on a regular basis. This will prevent them from overheating or accumulating large amounts of excess energy.
