Lubrication practices after shut-down

November 19, 2020

This document is a handy reference for starting the machines after a temporary / long shutdown, in case the user has not been able to follow standard shutdown procedures. Starting the machines or machine elements without proper start-up procedures could lead to irreversible wear, machine breakdown or safety hazards in the plant.
