Industrial lubricant shelf life
Lubricating oils and greases all come with a recommended shelf life, which can give you a reasonable expectation that the lubricant will perform as intended so long as it is stored properly in its original, sealed container. Before using lubricants at the end of their shelf life period, it’s important to perform laboratory testing (recertification) to make sure they can still perform well in your application. Learn why that testing is important, the difference between lubricant shelf life and service life, and what qualifies a lubricant as a “normal” or “short” shelf life product.
