ExxonMobil (Spring, TX) has launched “The Grease Experts,” a new educational video series for industrial operators who want clear and concise answers to technical grease questions.

The series features in-house grease experts Chris Decker and Toby Hlade, who are Society of Tribologists and Lubricant Engineers (STLE) Certified Lubrication Specialists, each with more than 20 years of field experience. Decker and Hlade answer questions sourced from real operators, including:

  • Re-greasing frequency: What do you need to consider when identifying the optimal re-greasing frequency and quantity for a given application?

The first video in the series focuses on color:
