Many large paper processing plants use the Esco Oil Sight Glass and other Visual Oil Inspection tools in their lubrication management programs to extend the life of their equipment. High humidity and constant water ingress that occur are challenging and can negatively impact productivity and uptime. Sealing and protecting your equipment with desiccant breathers is also important.
