  3. 3. OIL DRUMS • STEPS TO BE TAKEN AFTER RECEIPT OF THE LUBES: • UNLOADING • STACKING/STORING – INDOORS – OUTDOORS – POSITION: • HORIZONTAL • 3’O CLOCK – 9’O CLOCK POSITION
  4. 4. WATER RAIN AIR SPACE WATER AIR ESCAPE REDUCED AIR SPACE WATER SOURCES OF WATER INGRESS
  5. 5. Incorrect Storage Correct Storage
  6. 6. GREASE DRUMS • INDOOR STORAGE • VERTICAL STORAGE • COVERED OUTDOOR TO AVOID RAIN/SUNLIGHT
  7. 7. DISPENSING • SHOULD BE DISPENSED IN: – COVERED CONTAINERS – or – DEDICATED CONTAINERS Depending upon schedule & quantity
  8. 8. LUBRICATION MANAGEMENT Avoiding Contamination Good storage and handling practices - Use fork lifts for drum movement OR - Use hoist/jaws OR - Unload product through sliding - Use wooden dunnage on floor while rolling drums.
  9. 9. LUBRICATION MANAGEMENT To Avoid Contamination Use Separate dispensing equipment for each grade - Use of grease guns - Use of hand pumps - Colour coding of pipeline and dispensing equipment in large installations - Avoid residue in drums by proper dispensing.
  10. 10. LUBRICATION MANAGEMENT Avoiding Contamination Automatic lubrication systems - Thorough study of existing lubrication system - Workout feasibility of automatic system - Install automatic system when found cost beneficial - Reduces loss, contamination, ensures better performance
  11. 11. LUBRICATION MANAGEMENT Avoiding Contamination Proper Maintenance of dispensing equipment - Dispensing equipment should deliver required quantity with proper quality. - Dispenser should not be taken for granted for smooth operation. - Periodic calibration of each equipment wherever applicable
