Industrial lubrication equipment is used in a variety of industries to keep machines running smoothly. This type of equipment includes pumps, valves, and other devices that work together to move fluids around a plant. The machinery relies on a steady flow of oil to function properly, and if the equipment isn’t lubricated correctly it can cause problems.
There are a variety of different types of industrial lubrication equipment, each with its own unique set of safety concerns. Some of the most common types include:
-Machines that produce plastics
Industrial lubrication equipment can cause a variety of injuries. Some of the most common are:
-Lacerations, which can occur when the oil is forcefully ejected from the equipment
-Sprains and strains, which can be caused by sudden movement or contact with the machinery
-Fractures, which can happen when the equipment falls or is hit
-Compression injuries, which are often caused when oil is forced into a small space
Other injuries include scalds from hot oil, burns from molten wax or silicone, electrocution, and falls.
There are a few things you can do to prevent these injuries:
-Ensure that the lubricant is hot enough to produce a burn but not so hot that it sets fire to your skin.
-Keep your hands well away from the area being lubricated.
-Wear protective gear, including a face shield and gloves.
-Never stand close to an open flame while using a lubricant.
