INDC TR 2018-01 Mechanical Equipment Lubrication  


This report aims to reduce risk and minimize machinery damage by selecting the correct lubricant and at the same time address the lack of standardization for lubricant selection across U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) civil works. In addition, this report proposes ways to standardize lubricant selection and also incorporate sustainability into lubricant selection. The report examines current practices across USACE in regards to mechanical equipment lubrication including self-lubricated materials and identifies current and past case studies and technical reports. The report reviews modifications that USACE civil works can make to current lubricant selection practices, evaluates existing standards and provides performance requirements for lubricants.
