Case Study: Implementation of a world class reliability program at a Tyre Plant

Rodney Fitzpatrick, Managing Director, Lubrication Engineers


The global engineering team of a multinational tyre company had established a Lubrication System Standard for all their manufacturing plants around the world. However, in South Africa their local lubricant supplier was unable to provide the service & support that was required to implement a best practice lubrication reliability program. Instead, LE South Africa was therefore authorized to work with the plant to devise & then implement a full program of correct lubricant storage & handling which included color coding, labels, dedicated filter carts as well as Xclude Desiccant Breathers and Xpel Oil Containers.
