Midland, MI — Maintenance engineers, plant managers and original equipment manufacturers can now find solutions to many lubrication problems in a new brochure, “101 Smart Lubrication Tips,” available on-line at www.molykote.com.

The brochure, downloadable from a pdf file, has graphics and easy-to-read charts that offer solutions to common lubrication problems in categories such as rolling-element bearings, seals and packings, linear motion guides, vacuum pumps and air compressors, hydraulic pumps, and general maintenance and repairs.

For example, if a linear motion guide is suffering high wear due to intermittent operation or by small movement, the brochure recommends a dry film lubricant for short travel distances, and identifies the appropriate Molykote product, including the specific product numbers in Europe, Asia, Japan and the Americas.

If a particular product is not addressed in the brochure, technical experts are available via the www.molykote.com website.
